The water inside a coconut is just that...water...clear to just slightly cloudy, but certainly not the color of milk.
The local Carib in the household says that if your coconut water looks like milk it's spoiled.
It should also taste sweet.
Again, coconut water and coconut milk are two entirely different products.
