Coconut Cracking

Young Thai Coconut

For those of you out there curious about opening young Thai coconuts, here’s a little how to video demonstrating the “finesse” technique. Other techniques include the “whacking”, “hacking”, “cracking” and “smacking”… none of which are featured during this video. The Live Food Experience does not take any responsibility for those who sustain injuries while attempting to open a coconut. If attempting to open a coconut for the first time be sure to use a quality sharp knife. Coconuts eat cheap knives for breakfast. Also be sure to have some one standing by un case of a coco-mishap.

If you have a Young Thai Coconut Experience you wish to share, be sure to post it in the comments below.

Be safe, and Keep It Live!

  1. Great Vid! Hubby and I enjoy this smoothie!

    Thai Coconut Smoothie (usually serves 2)

    1 cup almond milk
    1 young coconut, water and meat
    1/4 cup honey, maple syrup, or you can use dates
    1 T. vanilla
    8 ice cubes
    Sprinkle cinnamon to taste on top.
    *We also had a frozen banana sometimes, but cut back on the ice.

    Throw it all in the blender, except the cinnamon and blend till smooth, pour into glasses, sprinkle cinnamon on top and enjoy!

    Have a great day!
