Coconuts are so good for your health. We love drinking coconut water and making fresh coconut milk for smoothies, curries and hot cacao or cocoa. It is easy to make your own fresh coco milk.
To extract the water use a screwdriver to test which of the tree eyes is the softest, then pierce.
Get all the water out. Then, you need to crack this baby. Holding the coconut hit it with the blunt side of your knife, turning as needed, until the shell starts cracking in half. Use swift but hard hits. Bring out the coconut meat from the shell by using the knife.
To make fresh coconut milk, blend mature coconut meat with coconut water and pure water, then strain it trough a nut milk bag. Keep leftover for your cookies and smoothies, it’s a great source of fibre.
We enjoyed coconut cacao over sunset that evening.
