Look at those Coconuts! We have never seen so many coconuts on a tree before! This is our Coconut Tree that we planted 3 years ago in Wellington Florida in our front yard.
So I realized that I don't even know when to pick the coconuts. When are they ready?
I have been eating Young Asian Coconuts for a couple of years now. They are soft and the milk is very sweet and contains mega nutrients. I open it up, put all the milk in a blender, scoop out the soft meat and then I blend it all together. This is quite a refreshing drink and gives me a huge boost of energy.
Coconut oil is rich in Lauric Acid which is known for its anti viral, anti- fungal and antibacterial properties. It also helps in losing weight which is hard for many people to believe since coconuts are high in fat. But it is a good and healthy fat that actually helps in raising the metabolism. The fat in Coconut does not raise cholesterol. It is now being recognized by the medical community for its powerful immune disease fighting properties. Lauric Acid is found in mother's milk. It is recommended that an adult have 24 ounces of Lauric Acid for positive health benefits. That amount can be found in 10 ounces of raw coconut daily or 3.5 Tablespoons of raw cold pressed Coconut oil.
Amazing what you can find out about something in your own yard! Katerina
