Fresh coconuts contain both refreshing, potassium/electrolyte-laden coconut water and small amount of soft jelly-like immature coconut meat. Drink the coconut water by itself or as part of a refreshing beverage, and use the meat in salads and diced or blended into beverages.
Coconut water is fat free, delicious, and a great way to rehydrate after strenuous physical activity. It offers potassium, minerals and electrolytes in quantities that can exceed popular brands of sports drinks. An extremely popular beverage in Central America, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific.
Each coconut can contain up to two cups of water, plus a small amount of meat.
