View Full Version : shreading coconut
01-26-2010, 11:34 AM
Hi to everyone;
Has anyone tried to shred and dry their own coconut from the meat inside the coconut? I searched this forum but did not see anything. I would appreciate any help that I can get on this.
Take care, Paul.
Hi Paul ~ I recently watched John Kohler do a video on this. We're not supposed to link, so if you wanted to go to YouTube, he's listed as "rawfoods" and the title of the video is, "Making Fresh and Dried Coconut Flakes with the Omega 8006 Juicer".
He's processing the white Mexican coconuts. He also has 2 other videos on making coconut butter and coc. oil. Even though I don't have that particular juicer, I still found the videos very informative.
What kind of coconut(s) were you interested in dehydrating? I've deh. the young Thai coconuts, so tasty! *Ü*

I can not get the same coconuts as you have. All I can get are the ones with the brown hairy outer layer with about 1/2 inch of coconut meat on the inside. I have made coconut milk with great success but always wondered if I could run this through the food processor as I have a grating attachment on mine, then slide it into the dehydrator and see what happens.
Thank you for your reply. I will look on you tube and see what happens.
Take care, Paul.
It's my understanding that the white Mexican coconuts are the same ones as the brown, just less mature. But, I would imagine their meat is then more tender as well too.
Hopefully someone will post that's successfully grated the brown. *Ü*

I just tried this and didn't like the way the coconut turned out. Very chewy. I like the raw coconut meat too much to want to dry it. I will continue to buy raw coconut flakes for recipes.
