Young Coconut Milk

One of my favorite drinks, besides water, is young coconut milk. Now, the art of making young coconut milk vs. mature coconut milk is a completely different process. Frankly, the young coconuts are much easier and faster to make milk from than mature ones, therefore they have become my (unbiased) preferred way to enjoy this delicious and healthy treat.

The first step is figuring out how to open them (but only after you have found the little buggers). I could explain to you how to open one, but it might be easier just to watch it.

After you have successfully opened your young coconut, pour the coconut water into the blender. Then scrape the meat out of the coconut (I use a spring scoop) and add to the blender. Blend for about a minute until it is smooth.

I also wanted to share with you some of the great health benefits of coconut just in case you needed further info on it that I found here.


“It’s a natural isotonic beverage, with the same level of electrolytic balance as we have in our blood. It’s the fluid of life, so to speak.” In fact, during the Pacific War of 1941-45, both sides in the conflict regularly used coconut water – siphoned directly from the nut – to give emergency plasma trasfusions to wounded soldiers.

Most coconut water is still consumed fresh in tropical coastal areas – once exposed to air, the liquid rapidly loses most of its organoleptic and nutritional characteristics, and begins to ferment.

  • Coconut Water is More Nutritious than whole milk – Less fat and NO cholesterol!
  • Coconut Water is More Healthy than Orange Juice – Much lower calories
  • Coconut Water is Better than processed baby milk- It contains lauric acid, which is present in human mother’s milk
  • Coconut water is naturally sterile — Water permeates though the filtering husk!
  • Coconut water is a universal donor– Its identical to human blook plasma
  • Coconut Water is a Natural Isotonic Beverage – The same level we have in our blood.
  • Coconut water has saved lives in 3rd world countries thru Coconut IV.

“Coconut water is the very stuff of Nature, biologically Pure, full of Natural Sugars, Salts, and Vitamins to ward off fatigue… and is the next wave of energy drinks BUT natural!”, according to Mortin Satin, Chielf of the United Nation’s Food & Agriculture Organization.

Coconut water contains more potassium (at about 294 mg) than most sports drinks (117 mg) and most energy drinks.

Coconut water has less sodium (25mg) where sports drinks have around 41mg and energy drinks have about 200 mg!

Coconut water has 5mg of Natural Sugars where sports and energy drinks range from 10-25mg of Altered Sugars.

Coconut water is very high in Chloride at 118mg, compared to sports drinks at about 39mg.

Data is based on a 100ml drink.
