Recipes with coconut
You don't need to look far for a recipe for your EAT ME coconut. They can be used in a wide variety of dishes, from (coconut) soup to salads. The hard husk makes the fruit a perfect base for a coconut bowl. And treat yourself to a refreshing smoothie with fresh coconut water.
Opening a coconut is easier than it seems, even though the husk is rock hard. You can opt for the smooth approach. Each note has three indentations - or eyes - at the base. Drill a hole in two of those three eyes and drain the coconut water or milk. A hard tap with a hammer is then enough to crack open the nut. Or you can opt for the rough approach: Some people simply drop the coconut into a hard surface!

Nutritional values per 100 grams
Did you know that with a coconut you also replenish the stock of minerals in your body? The coconut is a source of potassium, for example. Potassium is good for muscle function. A coconut is also rich in copper, the mineral that promotes the normal pigmentation of your hair and skin. And all those nutritional fibers in the nut are also a nice bonus!
Where do coconuts come from?
