Young Coconut Sherbet

   Coconuts we get from the market come from Mexico and Thailand. Most of the young coconut come from Thailand and are available all year round. They are sold in boxes already prepared and ready for use. One only has to open them properly to get every precious water and tender meat they offer. I open them with ease by slicing the white husk to expose the shell around the mid section then knock it with the blunt side of a cleaver or a similar object to open. This is done right above a huge bowl to catch every drop of the sweet coconut water.

To make the sherbet, you only need to freeze the coconut water that is slightly sweetened with white sugar and then put in a blender to make into a smoothie. Then incorporate some of the very tender coconut meat into the slush and serve in any way you like.

The tender meat looks like this. So soft, you can spoon and eat it from the shell.


Enjoy a really refreshing treat!

  7. Fantastic idea! There is a coconut cart down the corner of my house, and the coconut-walla is going tu cut only the top of a green coconut with a kind of sharp machete, leaving a thin layer of the white husk that keeps the coconut whole and hygienically safe. Once at home i can easily cut the thin layer and get to the water without spilling a single drop, but your presentation looks very nice. I love the soft flesh, tomorrow morning i am going to get it. Thanks! Ciao!

  23. We tend to get miserable specimens of coconut here and only around hallowe'en. I shall have to imagine what this sherbet tastes like until I get to visit Mexico or Thailand. Your photos are mouthwatering.

  26. Most awarded and terrible thing is that Play Bazaar and Satta King Live games are available on the Play Bazaar XYZ and this is the No.1 website since 2016 and most of the people visit to this website after the playbazzar dot com website
