How could I find out the calories in coconut water? You know, when you open a young coconut and make a shake out of the water? I have a friend who is doing Weight Watchers and wants to try a shake but is concerned about the points. :confused:

I found this information on the young coconut but it doesn't specify the amount of calories from the water or flesh. I suppose she could put the flesh in the shake along with the water and then the totals would be right.
Young coconuts are considered highly nutritious. One whole coconut has only 140 calories and provides 17% of the RDA for calcium. The total fat content is 3 grams, all saturated. With a zero content of cholesterol, the young coconut has 50 mg sodium, 28 grams of carbohydrate, 2 grams of fiber,15 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of protein.
WW points = 3 pts

Yeah, I found the same information. When I did fitday, I had to input it myself.

Thank you! Do you have the calorie information, as well? (dont' mean to be a pain). How did you input it? I tried raw coconut but that gave me info on the cream...

It says there that a cup of coconut water is 46 calories.
