Yummy Young Coconuts!

Here are a few photos of the last time we enjoyed some young coconuts!! They're a bit tricky to get open but once you do, they are SO Yummy to drink and fun for the kids!! Youtube.com has several videos with detailed footage on how to open them!
I came across young coconut years ago when I was dabbling in the raw foods craze. Raw foodies LOVE raw coconut and eat it and drink the milk on a regular basis due to it's health benifits and delicious taste. Towards the end of the summer, my youngest daughter was rushed to the ER when she came home from a long day in the sun with heat exhaustion and dehydration. I remembered the young coconut is one of the best ways to rehydrate your body, certainly much better than Gatorade or other electrolyte drinks that are also full of artificial colors and additives. If you have access to young coconut, I'd suggest having a few cans of it at home like you would chicken noodle soup or saltene crackers in case the kids get sick!http://www.youngcoconuts.com/benefits.html
