Coconut! Yey! I love coconut, specially coconut water. Coconuts are delicious, super hydrating and have very powerful detoxifying and healing properties. I never get enough of it. The only downside of it is the opening process. But now you no longer have an excuse: come on over to the kitchen and I’ll show you how a girl can cut open a coconut in style.
HOW TO CUT OPEN A COCONUT IN STYLE
It can be pretty easy to cut open a young coconut.
1. You’ll need a cutting board, a cleaver (or Asian chopper), a coconut opener, and a straw (pink is best!).
2. A coconut has two ends – the bottom where it sits, and the top part with the eyes of the coconut – we will work on the eyes of the coconut. Grab your cleaver and cut a chunk of the top part off.
3. Now, use your coconut opener by inserting it where the eyes of the coconut were. It doesn’t take long before the skins breaks! The scent is simply great!
4. Finally, use your pink straw and enjoy your coconut water!
This is an easy way to cut open a young coconut, as long as you are careful with your knife. If you happen to be ridiculously clumsy like me, please be very careful while using the knife when cutting a coconut.
After finishing drinking it, you can also open the young coconut to eat the flesh by placing the cleaver in the whole created by the coconut opener and pushing down little by little. Once you have a cut, you can use your hands to open it up. Enjoy!
