Fast Easy Way to get Water Out of a Coconut

Today’s article was brought to you by the generous folks over at Go check out their great line of “Multifunction Eyewear Necessities”, and tell them FloridaHillbilly sent you!

This one goes out to my buddy Barry, who seems to have a need for lots of coconut water for his moments of R&R.

As my regular readers know, I’m coo-coo for coconuts… I’ve written a double handful of articles about them, eat them on dozens of different ways, fill my truck with them, and generally obsess over them.

I’m always looking for ways to speed up the process of taking a husked coconut and getting the water and meat out of it. So when SWAK

I stumbled upon this method, I was happy and wanted to share it with you.

Simply put, you use a corkscrew to bore into the soft eye of the coconut, then pull out the core, leaving a hole large enough for a straw or to our the liquid out. Either way, its fast, efficient, and if you carry a Swiss Army Knife, a readily available method.

Here I am on a quick demo:

That’s it, a simple, yet effective (and relatively sanitary when compared to using a screwdriver!) method to get to the water inside a coconut.

    1. Glad I could help! I love coconuts myself….and find that while you are able to buy coconut water in cans at the store, it does NOT tastes as good as the real thing…
