One of the easiest recipes for eating a young coconut is to make a tasty smoothie. The smoothie is simply the water from the young coconut blended with the soft jelly like white inner meat.

It's so hard to find something satisfying to drink when you have Interstitial Cystitis. Thankfully, Coconut water is here to the rescue.  Not only is it extremely tasty, it's extremely nutritious and soothing to the bladder. Did you know that Coconut water is a natural isotonic beverage, with the same level of electrolytic balance as we have in our blood? During the Pacific War, fresh coconut water was used to give emergency plasma transfusions to wounded soldiers. More Coconut facts are at the end of this recipe.

Preparation Instructions:

  • Cut off the top of the young coconut. We usually lay the coconut on it's side and use an old knife and a hammer.  If you've got a machette or a cleaver, that'll work too.
  • Pour the coconut water into a blender.
  • Using a spoon, scoop out the soft flesh from inside the coconut and add it to the blender. Don't worry if some of the lining from the inner shell comes out too because it adds a nice hint of cinnamon flavor.
  • Blend and serve as is or you can doctor it up by adding ice, strawberries, blue berries or whatever you like. If you want to be adventurous, try adding an avocado, carob powder and maple syrup. You just might be pleasantly surprised!

Wow, It tasted as though this smoothie had cow's milk in it. I gave 4 of 5 in "overall" because I can't open the coconut myself but the taste and the bladder friendliness was a 5 of 5. The first time I made it, I added some vanilla extract but the last time I made it, I blended it plain and it had a nice faint coconut flavor which I preferred.
