Accessories you need
Coconut meat and water refers to the young Thai coconuts that you can get from Asian grocers and from many good supermarkets including Coles and Safeway. They look white and round with a pointy top. To open them, shave off the pointy top with a big knife down to the brown casing. With the heel of the knife, tap firmly from the point down to the outer edge, till you find the soft spot. When you find it, bang the heel of the knife in and this will create a hole. Drain all of some of the water out into a bowl over a sieve. The using the knife, lever the top of the coconut open. A perfect circle top will pop open, revealing the tender flesh if the coconut. Use the back of a soup spoon to scoop out the flesh. Scrape off the coconut husk off the flesh and rinse well. You can also put the flesh in smoothies, slice up and put in salads or stir-fries or blend with some water to make coconut cream. Check that the coconut isn’t mouldy on the bottom when you buy it or open it, and check the water is a clear white colour. If it is brown it will be off. If you are not sure have a little taste and if it is not decadent it is not right.
If you can’t source fresh young coconuts for their flesh and water, use a tin of coconut cream and half a cup of water instead.
Cocoa is roasted, and raw Cacao is not. Raw cacao has not been heat treated so contains all the nutrients that nature intended. It is very rich in antioxidants and magnesium in particular. If raw cacao is not available, use a good quality cocoa such as Green and Blacks or Dutch cocoa. Cacao nibs are the raw cacao beans broken into small pieces. Raw chocolate is a mixture of raw cacao powder, cacao butter & agave nectar. Raw cacao products can be found in good health food shops or visit www.lovingearth.com.au
