Whatever possessed me to order a coconut milkshake at a Thai restaurant?

It's a rhetorical question. Let's just say I'm paying the price...again and again.

Coconut shake is good, just not at that place.

You just caught the stomach flu.

I've never had a problem with coconut. Love it. More likely bad milk or poorly cleaned machine.

Could be a coincidence. Was ready to hit you when you had the drink. You could find out if anyone else got sick, too.

No such thing... just a polite way to say “foodborne illness”.

Could just be a reaction to the thickeners added to most coconut milks. Upsets a lot of tummies. Usually guar gum. It's why I buy Trader Joe's coconut milk. No thickener.

If you added enough rum, it would have killed the bacteria.

smiley-laughing001 Paul, I know that. Again, my stupid attempt to get a hit worked. Like in my Elvis post about so many who die because of marijuana. Hehehehe, yeah, even I know better. They die from stomach flu.

Oh me, I ain’t right nuts smiley

In a Thai restaurant, I'm guessing it was made with sweetened condensed milk, which is EXTREMELY high in fat. Your sensitive tummy couldn't handle it. WOOSH!!

Seems like all y'all diagnoses were right (except GuyGene wink smiley). Hit me about an hour after eating. Unfortunately, we were an hour and a half from home. Pain was in waves. At one point I thought i was going to pass out. Closed my eyes to ride it out and not think about it (my wife was driving), and when I opened my eyes things were blurry. The good news is that by the time I went to bed I was fine and this morning I'm none the worse for wear. It's been a long time since I had a reaction like that to bad food. But all seems well.

I had something like that happen after eating at a Red Lobster. I was praying that I was going to make it home before, well you know. Didn’t know at the time that my husband, who was driving, was also getting sick. Glad he held it together and that we each had a private bathroom to run to, when we got home.

Glad you are better today.

Damn.. you know, that sounds a little like a friend who is lactose intolerant describing what happens when he drinks milk... any chance?

If it didn't result in tossing cookies but still happened very soon, it sounds like a reaction to the food itself rather than a bug (virus/bacteria) in it. Bugs need a few hours to work their magic in my experience. We have a similar family story about eating lobster in Maine on vacation. We think the rich butter dip is what put it over the top.

Can't imagine it could be that. Until very recently, I had cereal with (fat free) milk every day for lunch. And I'm a big fan of cheese and unfortunately ice cream. That said, It does appear that I'm bad lactose intolerant.

Should be an easy test...
Chug a pint of whole milk and see if it happens again.
If it does, buy a bottle of lactose pills!

This is true for a toxin-mediated infection. However, some bacteria produce toxins that are present in the food, and simply ingesting the food can cause a reaction. In other words, the bacteria do not need to reproduce in the body to cause trouble.

Ha! After years of skim milk, I don't think I could choke down a glass of whole milk.

Was it a coconut flavored milkshake or a milkshake made with coconut milk? No lactose in coconut milk.

I was into skim milk for awhile once. The only problem is that it completely sucks for cooking and baking. Try making bechamel sauce or pastry cream with skim milk. Right. So, you end up having to stock both. My solution is to only buy whole milk since I seldom drink milk unless I'm making hot chocolate or having pancakes etc. In these cases, whole milk is a luxurious treat. I simply find skim milk to be nasty nowadays.

Coconut milk, pineapple juice and ice. The recipe for a virgin pinacolada. Yum!

No milk needed.

Thanks Pam, for Trader Joe's tip. I will have to check that out.
