Coconut milk is a creamy, rich liquid made from the flesh of mature coconuts. It is a popular beverage in the Philippines, the Caribbean and anywhere where coconut palms are plentiful. Coconut milk has the aroma of a coconut and a slightly sweet taste. It is an excellent substitute for cow's milk because it is easy to digest, easy to prepare and contains an abundance of nutrients. You can drink plain, use it for cooking or mix it with shakes to benefit from its nutritional value.

Vitamins C, E and many B vitamins are abundant in coconut milk. Vitamins C and E help to stimulate the immune system, and B vitamins are responsible for providing energy to cells. Coconut milk is also rich in magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and iron. Magnesium is responsible for many biochemical functions in the body, including regulation of heart rate and support for nerve cell function. Potassium maintains the tissues of the heart, kidneys, brain and muscles. Phosphorus keeps teeth and bones strong and iron creates red blood cells and carries oxygen throughout the body. Add coconut milk to your cereal and baked goods, or drink a glass or two each day to receive these benefits.

Antioxidants
"Ceylon Medical Journal" notes that coconut milk is rich in antioxidants, which prevents free radical damage. Free radicals are associated with the development of many diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease, and age-related dementia. Antioxidants can help reverse past damage and slow down the aging process. Drink a glass of coconut milk while eating other foods rich in antioxidants, such as pecans, raisins and blueberries. Energy-producing snacks that are rich in antioxidants will boost your immunity while rebuilding damaged cells in your body.

Lauric acid
Coconut milk is rich in lauric acid, a medium chain fatty acid that is abundant in breast milk. According to the National Biotechnology Information Center, lauric acid has many anti-fungal and anti-viral properties, which are very effective in ridding the body of viruses, bacteria and innumerable diseases. Lauric acid can also lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which decreases heart disease and stroke risks. There are only a few foods that are rich in lauric acid, so drink coconut milk regularly to benefit from this nutrient.
