Being from Gods Own country, Tender coconuts have always been something that has attracted me with its sweet taste and cooling nature..Back at home tender coconuts where cut directly from the tree when the man would come to put coconuts...without any delay it would be cut and gulped by me and my sis...after reaching US when I first saw them in a store I immediately took 2 with me..Came home...before changing dress went and cut it and took the first sip...OMG awful... It tasted so much of chlorine ...cut the flesh...same taste...threw it..Then after long time I saw it in Indian grocery store...bought it...same taste for the water...but flesh was good...so ended up with this shake..
Tender coconut-1 no(flesh alone)
Chilled Milk-1 cup
Sugar if required
Cardamom seeds from 1 pod(optional)
Method Of Preparation:
Cut the coconut flesh to small pieces and add suga( if needed)r, cardamom seeds(if using).Grind it to smooth form using little amount of milk at a time to form a medium thick consistency.Serve immediately.
2. There is another form of making juice with tender coconut.Just scrap the flesh and add the tender coconut water to a mixer and blend it for 2 minutes.See that there are few pieces of coconut after blending.Chill it and serve..Just perfect for hot weather...
