After a night of not eating as healthy as we should….ahem…late night poutine, I needed a little boost first thing in the morning!
I admit these young coconuts are expensive, unless I can find a reasonable supplier they will be off the table, at 4$ a pop they are a little much, but usually you can find them for half of that at smaller speciality markets.
Its super easy to open a young coconut, using a sharp knife, shave the top of the coconut until you see the rounded top, then using a large heavy knife you put the coconut on its side and hit the top creating a lid, make sure you keep your other hand at a safe distance like behind your back!!! And pop the coconut back up side before you open the lid so you don’t spill the coconut water.
1 Young Coconut- Water & the Meat
1 Cup Fresh Strawberries
Step 1. Open your coconut as directed above & pour the water into your blender.
Step 2. Using a spoon scrape out all of the fresh coconut meat & place it in the blender with the coconut water.
Step 3. Toss in your cleaned strawberries and blend until smooth! If you prefer a colder smoothie, throw your strawberries in the freezer for 30 minutes before you blend!
