- Take a corkscrew to the coconut holey bit. Stick a chopstick or similar into the hole and wheegie (it’s a word) it about to make a bigger hole.
- Decant contents into a drinking receptacle through a sieve (repeat a couple of times if you like). This coconut yielded about 200mls compared to that Vita Coco carton which has 330ml and sells for about €2.50-€3. It’s gorgeous, potassium-packed and super hydrating, but I can’t afford it frankly.
- Add a straw and fight over it with your 15 month old. (I’m so mature)
- Congratulate self on many euros saved, and enjoy rest of delicious coconut flesh. If anyone has any recipes for fresh coconut they’d like to share please do!
I also have it on good authority that Lidl will have coconuts for a mere 49c next week.
