No matter the weather, I can’t resist a creamy drink, and from lattes to smoothies, these are beyond tasty.

There are so many ways to put those cans to good use! Plus, I know you have a couple in the back of your pantry somewhere.

So, check out this list of 10 coconut milk drink recipes for some inspiration.

In fact, you might want to buy a few extra cans because these drinks are sure to become your new faves.

Easy Coconut Milk Latte and More!

1. Coconut Milk Latte

Ditch the Starbucks run and make this copycat latte at home!

There’s nothing like sipping on a creamy latte or cappucino in the afternoon. And believe it or not, you can make this latte with just three ingredients.

Creamy coconut milk is shaken with brown sugar and poured over espresso. You can add cinnamon, vanilla, or even pumpkin spice to fit your cravings!

Classic lattes are an easy coffee that many love. So, there’s no going wrong with an easy recipe like this!

2. Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Tea

If you haven’t had golden tea before, you’re in for a treat. With numerous health benefits, this popular latte is a creamy necessity.

Turmeric gives the drink a lovely yellow color. It becomes a flavorful tea latte when mixed with warm spices.

Simply combine the spices in a pot with coconut milk, and simmer for 15 minutes.

I like to froth some creamy tea for a bit of spiced foam on top. But that’s optional.

3. Starbucks Pink Drink

The ever-trendy Pink Drink is a popular Starbucks staple.

But why overpay for artificial flavors when you can make it in the comfort of your own home?

The base of the drink is green tea. You’ll add strawberry puree and coconut cream to achieve a perfect pink drink. 

You can add honey or agave for a natural sweetener, but this drink is good as is.

Either way, get your camera ready because this drink is picture-perfect.

4. Virgin Piña Coladas (Non-Alcoholic)

The beach is always calling my name. But when I can’t make it to the sandy shore, I like to sip on this creamy piña colada for tropical paradise vibes at home.

The beach is good, but this drink may be better!

All you need to make this tasty mocktail is ice, pineapple juice, and cream of coconut.

Add these ingredients to a blender, blast away, and that’s all! Garnish with a pineapple wedge and maraschino cherry, and enjoy. 

5. Coconut Milk Smoothie

If you love coconut, this is the smoothie for you. It’s totally coconutty, creamy, smooth, and fantastic any time of day.

Chunks of frozen coconut, ice, coconut milk, and sweetener are all you need! Blend the ingredients until smooth, and get ready to fall in love.

Top tip: freeze the coconut cream or chunks of banana. That way, the smoothie won’t water down with the melting ice.

This smoothie is the perfect start or finish to a hot summer day. Enjoy!

6. Thai Tea

I’m so in love with the boba tea trend, but I’d rather slurp a pitcher of this iced Thai tea when it’s hot.

Warm spiced tea and creamy milk on top? Yes, please!

This tea is so simple to make, and if you can’t find Thai tea mix, just add cardamom, cloves, and anise to black tea.

Pour it over ice, and add coconut cream.

The tea is lightly sweetened with sugar, and coconut cream is the ideal finish.

Stir lightly, or mix to incorporate the cream entirely. You can’t go wrong!

7. Blue Hawaiian Cocktail

I dream of going back to the Hawaiian islands. Unfortunately, teleportation doesn’t exist yet.

Thankfully, these cocktails transport my mind straight to the beach!

This cocktail is made with pineapple juice, silver rum, blue curaçao, and cream of coconut.

It’s basically the Hawaiian tropics in a glass, and it’s so easy to make too.

For a lighter drink, use coconut milk instead of coconut cream.

8. Secretly Vegan Eggnog

All the flavor of eggnog, but with no eggs or no dairy? Try out this easy recipe the next time you need dairy-free drinks for your holiday party.

Full-fat coconut milk and arrowroot powder result in a thick, rich, and creamy drink.

Sweet, thick, and creamy – just how it should be!

Don’t forget the spices. You won’t get that signature nog flavor without cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla.

9. Creamy and Luscious Coconut Hot Chocolate

Who can say no to a cup of hot chocolate?

This winter, ditch the powdered cocoa mix and make a pot of this irresistible hot chocolate from scratch. 

Creamy coconut milk, melted chocolate chips, and a decadent marshmallow whipped cream come together to create something dreamy and warm.

And yes, that’s real chocolate in there! So be sure to get something you like.

10. Coconut Horchata

Ice cold horchata is a classic Mexican rice milk drink that’s loaded with vanilla and cinnamon.

Vegan by nature, coconut milk is the perfect addition to this drink.

Start with boiling rice and cinnamon. Then, add coconut milk, vanilla, and a touch of maple for an indulgent, rich, and tasty horchata you won’t soon forget.
