Then there's coconut milk in a 10-12 ounce can that's thick and creamy and is meant for cooking curries and other yummy stuff.

THIS is the stuff we cook with:
Each product should have a distinct name, perhaps.

The coconut milk that is sold as a milk substitute is used in cooking though. It’s a milk substitute, so it’s used when a recipe calls for “milk.”

I'm annoyed by the whole alternative milk thing. It shouldn't be allowed to be called milk unless it came from a mammal's udders.

Well, for most of these “milks,” ya gotta squeeze something to make it
Humans make milk too, and I don’t think the women on this forum would appreciate their breasts being called “udders!”

Until human breast milk is sold in stores, that's not really an issue.
