Tiger's milk?

At my aunt's house over Thanksgiving, I started flipping through some of her old cookbooks. I liked a lot of what I found in the 1971 New York Times Natural Foods Cookbook, but I was confused by one ingredient that was mentioned often.

Do any of you know what "tiger's milk" is?

The book isn't vegan, or even vegetarian, but a lot of the recipes in it are animal-free. I asked my mom about the "milk," and she remembered the name from the '70s but didn't remember what it meant. She guessed maybe coconut milk, but others disagreed.

I googled it, but I found only "Tiger's milk bars" and an alcoholic drink of the same name, but this cookbook states outright that it is non-alcoholic (in keeping with the trends of natural foods enthusiasts of the day).

A lot of the recipes it appears in are otherwise vegan or easily adaptable, and I'd like to try some of them.

Any help would be great. Thanks.
