Coconut Bounty steemCreated with Sketch.

in lifestyle •  2 months ago 

When you live in Mauritius you are bound to have either some fruit trees like bananas, mangoes or others but most definitely you are guaranteed to have a coconut tree somewhere in your garden or in the vicinity.

If not, then you can definitely find coconuts at your nearest street vendor.

You may not know this, but many believe that coconut water is considered to be the purest liquid after water! Since it's packed with antioxidants and cytokinin which your skin craves, it fights aging by hydrating your skin pores.

We're lucky to have a tree in the yard. Only problem is that you need a machete to open them up. Which is not a problem as we do have a machete but the other problem is that I'm crap scared to lose a few fingers in the process. 😂

The machete

It's very obvious that the locals whom have grown up with the tradition of picking them and opening them up has got the knack of it down to a tee. Me on the other hand... Mmmmm not sure.

Our bountiful tree

Because it's Tuesday I think my coconut tree is an wonderful entry for #treetuesday by @old-guy-photos.

The Coconuts still on the tree

Such is island lifestyle. My gardener was so kind this morning to help me out by cutting them open. Into the fridge they go so I can enjoy them nice and cold.

Some more possible benefits of coconut juice below.

At least 2 of those fresh meat halves would not be making it into the fridge with me @dkkarolien, unless for only 30 minutes. When they are fresh and soft like that, yum, yum, yum. I do get them on the street here for very cheap.

And definitely no machete, lol. Great entry for this challenge my talented friend :)

Best drink ever, love the tender coconut, it is so tasty👌 great information too.

Seems like they could make a better way. I machine like a log splitter would work perhaps?

I wish. 😂 I'm so scared to chop my fingers off with the machete!! A splitter would be amazing!
