For years I have walked through the produce center and walked right by the coconuts. I have always wanted to buy a coconut, but I had no idea how to open them or what to do with it once I got it open! So awhile back, I set out to conquer my fear of a coconut To my surprise, it wasn’t that bad after all and was actually quite easy. Yes it will take about 5 minutes to open and get the meat out, but it is well worth the effort!
Did you know that you can get all this from 1 coconut? Coconut water, coconut milk, dehydrated coconut flakes or fresh coconut flakes, coconut flour, coconut butter/cream? All these products for about $1.99 and a little work!
This week I am posting a 4 video series about coconuts. You will learn the following:
