Notes

You can find young Thai coconut at most large Asian Markets, Whole Foods, Sprouts, and other grocers. Not sure how to open? We love YouTube! Just do a quick search and you’ll find videos about how to open them and remove the meat. If you don’t have coconut meat you can substitute banana.

  • 3/4 Cups coconut water
  • 1 Cup packed coconut young coconut meat
  • 1/2 Cup fresh or frozen strawberries (no sugar added)

Beet Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Beet Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook different types separately and then combine.
