In brief: It's popular now.

Coconut milk (unless fat free) is high in saturated fats, which are not good for you.
Coconut if very popular right now, but it will pass, like all other fads. Saturated fats increase bad cholesterol and decrease good cholesterol, along with many other possible concerns.
