Ever wonder how to get a rich creamy white coconut milk fresh from the nut? Here's how

You'll need:
2 young Thai coconuts
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
scraping tool to remove the coconut flesh inside
A good method to open the Thai young coconuts (see below)

Ingredients:
2 Young Thai coconuts - save the water & place the meat into the blender
1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract

Directions:
Place 1 cup of coconut water into the blender
Place all coconut meat into the blender
Blend on high for 1 minute
Add the remaining coconut water (or less for more creamy textures)
Add the vanilla extract after desired consistency is reached
Blend on high for 1 - 2 minutes

Directions to open a coconut can be found online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsP1ZZtuffU
Easy open with Coco Jack: I used one of these at the Raw Food Expo & it's the perfect tool if you buy coconuts by the case. The scoop is another item they have that gets the soft inside in one scoop. https://thecocojack.refersion.com/c/9781
