Make Your Own Coconut Water

Coconut water seems to be all the rage lately. While the prepackaged pasteurized water is great to use in a pinch, nothing compares to the fresh coconut water that directly comes from a coconut. To purchase a young Thai coconut, head to your local Whole Foods Market or Asian grocery store. Once you are home, take a sharp knife (not your best cutting knife) and cut off the bottom quarter inch of the coconut.  Find the small soft spot on the bottom and pierce the coconut. Next, make a hole large enough to let the water drain through.  Turn the coconut over and fill up your cup. An 8-oz serving of the water contains about 46 calories and is filled with electrolytes and more potassium than a banana! Look for future posts on making coconut kefir and what to do with the coconut meat once you drink the water.
