I don't know if this is what you are looking for or if it is good or not, I just remembered seeing this recipe and found it on living-foods.com
You can probably omit the carob without any problem.
Sergei's Young Coconut Dream Cake

- 1/2 cup of your favorite pitted dates
- 1/4 cup young coconut water

1. Blend the walnuts and dates in a food processor till the mixture is

That does sound really good. I wonder what type of fruit slices would be good though? I'm thinking banana but not sure what else.. maybe strawberry too.
Thanks so much! that isn't a very complicated one either. But I have to get a young coconut, and last time we did it was a nightmare getting it open. My husband ended up making it squirt coconut milk everywhere :p
I'm going to print out the recipe and see if he is willing to try and open another one of those coconuts. If I make this, I will post a picture for you!

yay I'm glad to have helped. If you do end up making it I hope you like it! That would be great to see a picture :) Good luck opening that coconut ;)

Okay, I am going to try this because I found a video on how to open a young coconut properly. :)
The main synopsis of the video is: don't let your husband do it
lol. No.. It doesn't say that :D He did the best he could. Once it was open, it was quite tasty. It tastes so different from the other coconuts (the old coconuts I guess they should be called? :p)
