How To Open A Young Coconut

If you’ve never eaten a young thai coconut before, you’re in for a treat! You can get them at most large grocery stores or just about any health food store or asian grocer.

You’ll also need to learn how to open a young coconut. You will need either a machete or a large, strong steel kitchen knife.

If you have a machete, strike the coconut hard on the top (where the pointed tip is) in 4 strikes in a large square shape – to create an opening at least 1 inch by 1 inch on the top. This will take some practice to get used to.

If you’re using a large kitchen knife, you can slice off the outer layers of the coconut near the top in the same 1 inch by 1 inch shape. Eventually you’ll cut down to the light brown internal shell which is very hard. Once you’ve cut down that far, you will need to use a forceful strike of the knife to bust it open on each side.

Making The Coconut Smoothie

Once you’ve opened the coconut (Congratulations! That was fun, wasn’t it?) pour the coconut water from the inside into a blender and scoop out the white flesh with a spoon and add that to the blender as well.

Next, scoop out the clear inner flesh of the aloe plant and place it in the blender. Be very careful not to get any large pieces of green aloe skin in there because it is a strong laxative (Warning!). Just add the inner clear flesh of the aloe – this is the good stuff that will help detox your body and cleanse out any toxins built up. Add medjool dates and blend together.

Pour in your favorite margarita glass and enjoy!

This delicious detox smoothie will keep you healthy and well nourished for the new year.
