This may sound like a pretty straight forward thing to do, but I assure you, it’s not.
I bought a full coconut at WholeFoods in Venice, CA when I first moved to SoCal. I was inspired by all the health nuts around me, shopping in their spandex and Lululemon hairbands. I took it home and had no idea what to do with it and eventually tossed it once it looked like it was ready to sprout legs and run away on its own.
But recently Melissa’s Produce sent me a couple of coconuts to crack and I decided it was high time I figured this damn thing out as it’s too cute and tasty to pass up.
So I Googled it and low and behold…..I found a way!
The downside is that it was some pretty lame dude instructing the how-to, so I figured I better add a little of my own coconut cracking pizzaz to the internets.
