As I traveled around Indonesia I felt very welcomed by the people that I met and often when arriving in a new destination or at a new hotel my friends and I would be given a “Welcome drink”. Varying from different juices to ginger teas one of my favorite welcome drinks was this young coconut that I was given at the Kokonut Suites, in Bali.

Young coconuts have more coconut water in them than the older ones and the coconut meat is more fleshier and easier to eat. They are also known for their health benefits and they are tasty an refreshing on a hot day.

Have you ever had a young coconut?
