Coconut water is the clear liquid inside the young coconuts ( fruits from the coconut palm ) I love this natural fruit juice and we can get this fruit all the year round. Coconut water is a popular drink in the tropics especially in South East Asia, Pacific Islands, Caribbeans and Africa where it is available fresh, canned or bottled. On hot weather, this is the most refreshing drink ever and it is cooling for the body as the chinese believes. I normally buy from the ice stall outside my housing estate selling just coconut water. Been buying from this old uncle since my Piggies were kiddos. I heart the young coconut meat too. This is God's greatest making....and now we get to enjoy this coconut water from the young coconuts....and the matured ones...we extract coconut milk to cook rice, curries and cakes....and I have turned them into ice popsicles mmmmmm slurpsssss...
I have turned into a popsicle fan lately...turning all types of fruits into popsicles :p Wild Boar and I really enjoy a stick each time we feel like snacking something and this coconut water ice popsicle is really good for hot weather. I churned the ready bought coconut water ( with sugar syrup added ) together with the coconut meat and added some lemon juice to give it a tangy lemony fragrance. A great snack to bring me out of my sleepiness especially when I have to chat with my kids on skype. At times , I can just dozed off while trying hard to keep awake to chat with them till early morning and what better way to stay awake is to pop this ice popsicle into the mouth. Taste wonderful ! I have tried making the mango and pineapple juice ice popsicle...will be sharing with you later :)
