STYLE FILE | COCONUT
I discovered a little cafe on the long weekend that sells coconuts.. Whole coconuts listed alongside the milkshakes and iced tea! Genius. I didn't order one but I saw many a happy customer sipping their very own.
Coconut is one of those super versatile fruits (nuts?) that is used in an abundance of different ways.
I was privileged to be taught some of the many traditional uses for a coconut while in Vanuatu a few years back. I was amazed! Every last skerric of the plant is utilised - from the milk in all it's various stages of development, to the oil, to the fibres running up the centre of the leaf frond. It surely is a wonder of creation.
