I have a confession to make...we've been living together for quite some time now.. I can hold you, touch you, yes.. even lick you whenever I feel like it.. and again.. you amaze me every single time..This my friends.. is the story of how 'Knifey' helped me crack up a fresh coconut! lol :D
You can buy fresh coconuts in just about every Asian Supermarket! They cost around 2,50 euro each. I used to drink these coconuts in Singapore like 4 to 5 times a day :| My mom would always warn me saying 'Eva, you can drink as much coconutwater as you like, just don't eat the white meat every single time..'. (unless you have the ambition to grow into a big mother f#cking giant??! Excuse my language..).. I had to learn it the hard way... urgh lol ;D
First things first...Use a strong solid knife, good quality is a life essential for your kitchen appliances honey! Don't be greedy spending some M to the Oney - MONEY on knifes.. unless you have the ambition to loose a finger 1, 2 or 3.. :O
Chop of the top carefully and use a straw to suck the juice right out of the nut! When you finished all of the delicious juice.. crack this thing up using more power and bang this thing HARRRD with your knife..(yeah girl.. let all of that anger go..haha)
Use a spoon to scoop out of the super sweet and tender 'meat' from this fruit... As you can see.. I'm eating it with much flair & grace.. haha ;D
I finished it all in what I think less then 10 minutes :O ..why so tasty?! WHY?!!
