Fresh Coconut Yogurt


I love coconut water, especially from fresh coconuts. I drink the coconut water from Thai coconuts. These coconuts have have the outer layer removed so they are white. They also have more water and a softer meat, which is soft and jelly-like.
 
The other coconuts have a rough and brown skin. Those coconuts have little water and the meat is firm. I prefer to eat the meat from these or use it to make curries and other coconut creations.

You can eat the coconut meat out the coconut with a spoon, or make a yummy yogurt, like I did!

These coconuts are sold at markets, Asian shops and some supermarkets. I have seen organic ones in organic shops and health stores too. They are around $4.00 each. At times I wish I was still in Thailand; they only cost around 30 cents there!

I hate to waste things, so I created this yummy yogurt using the coconut. I also added probiotics to this recipe for a health boost!
