View Full Version : Yellow coconut water

"Don't eat yellow snow" but what about yellow coconut water? It smelled okay and tasted okay (I'm either brave or stupid), but I wonder what you think may have caused the discoloration. It was a white coconut with a lot of water.

Good question and I too am eagerly awaiting the answer... just now starting to experiment with a coconut.. I bought one last week and want to use it in a smoothie tomorrow...
how did you open your Rawmmey? I don't have any heavy duty tools or knives to "crack" it open with..........

lavendarj - I tried a variety of ways to open a coconut and didn't find one I liked until I saw this video: http://rawfoodmedia.com/index.php?option=com_seyret&Itemid=28
I was shocked to find that it actually works! I can open a young coconut in no time flat, now, and get all the water and meat out - no waste! Give it a go, no fancy tools needed. (Or even heavy-duty ones, really...)

I'll have to try the method in the video again, but for now, here's what I'm doing:
* Take coconut into back yard and sit in the grass. It doesn't roll around in the grass and any mess stays outside.
*Kneel over it and place other hand behind my back (I already have a bad track record with cutting onions)
* Whack it hard with a regular large kitchen cutting knife. (I think machete or hatchet is better, but I don't have those). I go for 4 cuts that make a square on the top. This process did dent my regular kitchen knife so I got another and I'm supposed to be keeping the dented one for coconuts only.
* Open the "door" as she calls it in the video and drain water. Make additional cuts if needed to get access to scoop out meat with a tablespoon. For some reason seems to work best if I scrape with the bowl of the spoon up.
Hope that helps!
