3 ways to enjoy Thailand coconuts

Before coconut water stepped into its fifteen minutes of fame, you might have equated coconut with a sickly Bounty bar or other fake confection – but that’s set to change.

1. Fresh Thai coconut

Fresh coconut juice has more vitamin C than orange juice! Happily, someone else will wield something machete-esque to cut the coconut open. Drink the juice and then use the provided spoon to scoop out the sides. (Parents – this is a great drink to get your kids hooked on).

Ask for a fresh coconut at any Thai beach restaurant – they’re the ultimate hangover cure (and a refreshing break from Thai beer).

2. Thai coconut shake
