Fresh Coconut Pudding

Fresh Coconut Pudding

Are you tempted to buy one of those big green coconuts in the grocery store but don’t have any idea what to do with it? We have just the thing! Fresh coconut pudding made from the meat and water of an immature coconut is a refreshing dessert on a hot summer night. It’s also a healthy and nutritious treat you can feel good about indulging in.

Coconut water and the meat of a green or immature coconut are the main ingredients of this recipe, which makes it a perfect post-workout snack. The super-hydrating qualities of coconut water along with a dose of healthy coconut oil contained naturally in the flesh will help replace electrolytes and give your body the satisfying burst of energy it needs to recover after exercise. Of course, you don’t have to work out to deserve a treat! As the saying goes, life is short, eat dessert first.

Don’t let the chore of opening a coconut stop you from trying this recipe. It’s really easier than it seems. Just be sure to purchase a green coconut that already has the tough husk removed from one end. Use a large knife to cut a hole in the white end of the drupe that’s large enough to fit a spoon into. Then you can easily pour out the delicious coconut water, and scoop out the soft fruit with a spoon. Unlike brown, fully mature coconuts, the flesh of a green coconut is soft and rubbery. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll see this fresh coconut pudding is almost as fun to make as it is to eat.
