Description
The milk or juice of a coconut is supposed to be an ideal drink for when the body needs rehydration. It can be expensive when bought in bottles, so it could be worth the trouble of buying the whole fruit Boring a couple of holes in the top gives access to the liquid, which may need straining.

Splitting the cocmut to get access to the white flesh inside is another matter. This operation may involve the use of a hammer. Then it is a matter of prizing apart the cracked shell in order to scoop out the creamy contents. When dried, the white flesh is called copra.
