Fresh, young, Thai Coconut opened by yours truly!
Open one young, fresh, Thai Coconut carefully with a heavy cleaver (As shown above, on a very steady cutting surface, make four good whacks to make a square in the cone top of the coconut, keeping one hand behind your back as you whack. Tuck the back corner of your cleaver into one side of the square to pull of the edge. If you've cut deeply enough the whole square will pull right up.) Pour the gorgeous coconut water into Vitamix. Scrape out tender, creamy, interior meat and add to Vitamix also.
Save 1 or 2 delectable pieces (like the underside of the "lid") to savor on the side during preparation.
Sprinkle in a touch of organic Ceylon cinammon (Cassia is toxic). A twist or two of Himalayan Pink Salt. A dash of pure vanilla powder (optional)...
& bit of raw coconut nectar (which assists digestion, is low glycemic, low in fructose, contains 17 amino acids, a host of minerals & vitamins B & C and is hypoallergenic, non-toxic, antiviral/antifungal/antiseptic/antibacterial & antiparasitic!) or stevia or raw honey (ideally manuka).
Blend til creamy.
Add a little extra purified water to acquire desired consistency as the mixture may or may not be very thick depending on the amount of coconut meat in your coconut (the amount of meat varies quite a lot between coconuts).
Blend once more.
Enjoy your exotic, insanely delicious & nutritious meal :-)
