How To Drink Coconut Juice
Please consume fresh young coconuts only.
And there is only one way I will recommend in drinking coconut juice.
Apart from the rule of going fresh, coconut water rapidly loses most of its organoleptic and nutritional characteristics once exposed to air, and begins to ferment. Hence, the best way to drink coconut juice is drink it directly from the coconut. Please do not consume canned or bottled coconut drinks for your health and weight loss program. Also, old coconuts are not drinkable.
Fresh young coconuts are widely and economically available in tropical regions. You may also access imported young coconuts from reliable groceries. If it is not easily available in where you are, here is a link where you can buy fresh young coconuts online: Florida Coconut
Please also make a note as to consume it whenever it is available. In case you are traveling to Thailand, Malaysia, Hawaii, Florida, Brazil or Pacific Islands, be sure to drink as much as you want everyday.
