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.

Coconut milk

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Coconut milk, in a bowl


Coconut milk is the liquid that comes from the grated meat of a coconut. The color and rich taste of the milk can be attributed to the high oil content.





Coconut water

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Coconut water is the clear liquid inside young coconuts

Learned more about coconuts than I ever wanted to in this thread. Either way, I don't believe you'll be able to easily drink from a coconut in this area. I've seen that when I've been down in the Caribbean but have never seen it round these parts.

I've had coconut water before, it's pretty good honestly.

I may stand to be corrected, but I thought we were well north of the zone where coconut palms could survive. I don't recall ever seeing any around here but again, I could be wrong.

You can't here. Go to Brasil or South America and you can do it there, I've done it.
