What's Cracking?
Spring, I hope!

If the weather isn't cooperating, you can still get into the spring mindset by enjoying the sweet taste of fresh coconut.



It's not easy, but it's so worthwhile

Opening Groovy Coconuts

Coconuts are tough nuts to crack. Groovy Coconuts make it easier.


OK, so the coconut's not so user-friendly. But oh the many ways fresh coconut can be enjoyed. 


Take and flake, shave, chop, and slice. Open one coconut and do it all. Open two, and one coconut can make for a valued gift.

Packaged vs. Groovy Coconut
It's so tempting to reach for the package of shredded coconut. But before you do, compare labels. 
The coconut in that package has added sugar, whiteners and  preservatives.
Groovy Coconuts are so fresh tasting, I bet you won't miss the added sugars. And none of the other additives will be missed either. And what do they do to packaged coconut that requires adding whiteners?
Nutritional info
No "can" do jam

Fresh coconut is a delicious and nutritious source of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It's also packed with calcium, potassium, and magnesium. 


Coconuts are a good, healthy dairy alternative for those who are lactose intolerant or those who prefer a vegan diet. More nutritional info...

Versatile coconut
Coconut: sliced, grated, chopped, flaked. Click for a larger image.
Slice, grate, chop, flake, shave, or curl a coconut's beautiful white insides.  No matter how you slice or dice it, coconut adds a sweet, fresh taste to any dish. Larger pieces deliver a bigger coconut taste. Chopped coconut (chopped in a blender or food processor) gives a nutty crunch to any dish. 
Groovy Coconuts will give you about 2 cups of fresh coconut. Don't worry about using it all at once. Store in airtight containers/bags in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks or the freezer for up to 6 months.

Summer's heat will soon come to us in the tropics, just as spring's gorgeous days will come for you. Celebrate spring's arrival (or expected arrival) with fresh, sweet Groovy Coconut. 


Groovies aren't hard to pick out. They're the coconuts wearing orange fishnet. 


Yours in the tropics,
