Beverage || Coconut Water {Two}

There is another, and potentially cooler way to open young coconuts. After experimenting with both methods, I think I prefer this one!

Garrett love it this way! Especially when building forts in the living room and playing Swiss Family Robinson!

1. You first must shave the white “bark” off of the top of the coconut like so. Just use a standard, small paring knife.

Continue around until you got most of the white bark off of the top.

 

 

2. There is a weak spot forming a near perfect circle around the top of the coconut. Take the point of your knife and tap it into the coconut until you penetrate the shell.

I used the rubber mallet to tap the knife in again but you could really use whatever is available.

 

 

 

 

3. Turn the knife back and forth 90 degrees. It should crack the coconut along the top as shown to the left.

The top should basically pop up as you wiggle the knife.

 

Supper cool, toddler approved — feel like you are somewhere fabulous even though it’s -10 and snowing .. or is that just us ..

G's Top Shelf is an archive of our favourite children's books that grows with 4 year old G as we read more and as his book preferences change.
