Kevin vs. Coconut

The Art of Opening Coconuts

sunny 89 °F

Coconut trees are everywhere in Fiji; in the city we saw a construction worker pull out a machete and hack open a coconut for a drink break.
Inside unripe coconuts is what is known as coconut water or juice and is actually now sold commercially as a healthy antioxidant drink. We learned that coconut milk is made from mixing the water with the flesh of a ripe coconut. Kevin first decided to attack a coconut while walking along the beach and although he didn’t have a machete, he made do with a rock and a serrated shell. We even made a cocktail out of rum and coconut water ... watch our instructional video “Big Coconut Egg VI” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IVL1TBzHt0
