Fresh green coconuts are ubiquitous throughout the Tropics but sometimes hard to find here in the UK. There's up to half a litre of fresh coconut water in each young coconut which can be enjoyed through a straw for that 'tropical vacation' feeling.
Fresh green coconuts have a pre-made drink - no crushing or pressing is necessary, just a straw. This clear liquid called coconut water or juice contains electrolytes, vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants, phytonutrients and more... Coconut water still in its husk has to be tasted to be believed.
How much coconut water and jelly flesh is there inside?
It may come as no surprise to know that we don't fill the coconuts ourselves - that's done by nature - therefore we don't get to decide how much coconut water or jelly flesh there is inside. Each coconut is unique and each harvest varies. Some nuts in your box may have more jelly/less water ratio and other nuts may have more water/less jelly ratio. Typically there will be approx. 250-500ml coconut water with 1mm to 5mm layer of jelly flesh, so the more water there is, the thinner the jelly layer and vice versa.
How do I get into the coconuts?
To open yours, you'll need a sharp serrated knife and/or a COCO-DRILL . Please be sure to pierce all the way through into the middle of the nut to get right into the water.
• Drink from the nut for a refreshing, rehydrating boost
• Make the tastiest smoothie ever by blending the flesh with bananas, mangoes, fresh spinach etc...
• Alkalise by blending your fresh coconut water with wheatgrass and other greens.
