Easy way of getting into a drinking coconut

You don’t need special tools or special skills to open a young drinking coconut – just a knife and a minute or so.

Instructions for opening a young drinking coconut

  1. Put the coconut on its side. Cut slices off the wide end until you see the ‘eyes’ – they look like bowling ball holes. You are only looking for the ‘soft’ eye, which looks translucent in colour and more obvious than the others.
  2. On the other end, cut the pointy tip off. This is now the bottom.
  3. Put the coconut on its new bottom. With the end of the knife, carefully pick out the soft eye you’ve found – the knife should go into it easily.
  4. Once you have a hole big enough, put a straw in and enjoy the coconut water.
