Hey, everyone! I wanted some more information about the coconut milk debate. Does light versus regular really matter? Is the light version really just watered down regular coconut milk? If I am trying to watch calories (well, not me, but in cooking for my boyfriend), then is the light okay to use? If I have regular can I just add water to make it "light"? A lot of questions, but whatever insight you can provide, I will be extremely appreciative to hear.

Light coconut milk is fat reduced. Check the label. It is not watered down. There should be no added carbs or sugars. However the ratio of fat to carbs will be altered.

In most cases, when light or 'low-fat' are options, the fat is replaced with carbs and/or sugars. Saturated fats are removed, therefore denying you of their benefits.
