    Love the manna. Eat it right out of the jar. Can’t wait to make my own coconut milk.

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Thanks, Kim! Hope you love the Manna milk as much as we do:)

  2. Karen says:

    I have a recipe for smoothie from foodbabe that needs a 1 cup of coconut milk, instead of making milk of of my nutiva coconut mana, can I use instead 2 Tbsp of the mana? Karen.

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi Karen – Yes, you should be able to instead just use 2 Tbsp of the Organic Coconut Manna. Do keep in mind, though, that your smoothie will be *less* liquid and have an added thickness to it. Let us know if you try it!

  5. Judy says:

    hello! I’ve started making matcha green tea lattes using coconut milk. The cartons are full of chemicals, so I would like to try using this manna I just purchased! Do I need to actually follow your recipe to make the milk, or can I add water, manna, and matcha all to the blender and blend as is? Or would it turn out different/better to go through the process of making the milk? Thank you!!!!!

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi Judy – First off, congrats on making your own. We think you’re going to prefer it! Second, you could always follow our directions and then add your extras to it to ensure consistency. Let us know how it works:)
