Coconut Juice or Coconut Water

Coconut Milk - coconut cream

Coconut juice is also known as tender coconut water, looks almost like water. It is the clear water inside a young green tender coconut. It is very good for health apart from quenching your thirst in the hot weather.

The tender or young green coconut is plucked from the tree before it matures. It is full of water or may contain a little soft coconut cream in it too.

If it has some soft coconut, as you can see int he image below, the water is mildly sweet, really very tasty.

If this young coconut had been allowed to mature on the tree, this water would have turned into thick white coconut flesh.

You can find the coconut vendors in the Asian countries selling on the road side. They have a good business during summer months.

Now most tourist places have these coconut water vendors offering the coconut with a sickle in hand to open the coconuts.

You may select a coconut yourself or allow the vendor to select for you by specifying whether you want only coconut water or water along with some cream in it.

Remember to choose only green, young, tender coconuts. The hard, brown colored shells usually contain mature coconut fruits.

Coconut water/juice is also available in bottles or cartons. I haven't tasted it yet as the coconut water is easily available in it's natural container, a tender green coconut, in my place.

This coconut juice or coconut water has many medicinal properties and is used for treatment.
