Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Those that are lactose intolerant are able to sub coconut milk for cow's milk. A 100 ml serving of coconut milk contains 154 calories, 1.4 g protein, 15 g fat with 13.2 g of it saturated and 3.4 g carbohydrates. Thinner coconut milk consistencies are best for curries and soups while thicker version do well in desserts and rich sauces. One medium banana has just 105 calories, 14 g naturally occurring sugar and provides 3 grams of satiating fiber, making it one of healthiest cheap snacks on the market. Bananas also a great source of belly-flattening nutrients like potassium and prebiotic fiber, which helps to feed good gut bacteria and improve digestion.
