Dietitian’s Dish:
> Coconut milk is made by puréeing shredded coconut flesh with water and straining to create a rich, milk-like liquid. It makes an excellent base for smoothies, soups, curries and ice pops, plus it’s a great dairy alternative for baking.

> If you’re dairy-free and looking for ways to boost your calcium, be sure to incorporate calcium-rich foods into your diet like fortified juices, fortified soy, rice and almond milk, beans and dark, leafy greens.
