View Full Version : what to do with buckets of coconut water?

okay-not buckets, but probably 2 quart jars full....it seem to be, er...an acquired taste.
Does it mix well in a GS, or am I better off using it sans greens? It just such a STRONG flavor and not one I am particularly fond of-yet ;) (WF *just* started carrying them in my area)

Buckets huh? Bathe in it?
It's excellent in a green smoothie or any base that calls for water.
Why not freeze it in icecube trays to add to your smoothies?

It's also great in a chocolate smoothie as the base- sometimes I just add raw chocolate powder, other times a banana. Yesterday I made a chocolate hazelnut smoothie with the coconut base. YUM!
But then again I do LOVE coconut water:D

I think the water tastes best slightly chilled, rather than very cold.

That eggnog recipe was AWESOME!!! I froze enough coconut water for 3 more days of nog! and I'm marinating the meat for jerky. How exciting!

Coconut water does not have a strong flavor at all. Is it by any chance from those thai/trimmed/pointy/white coconuts? If so, you're probably tasting the formaldehyde/other toxic chemicals they are dipped in. I had bought some of those once and the whole thing, meat and water, just tasted like toxic chemicals. I now buy whole natural green coconuts or the brown mature ones, those are not dipped in chemicals and taste like coconut rather than a toxic soup.
