Tender Coconut Milkshake – South Indian Drink

This is too good to resist!

I grew up having this milkshake and never got tired of this. In the U.S (or non-tropical countries), it’s hard to get hold of fresh tender coconuts. Whenever I find them I buy them and most of the times been deceived. It’s very hard to tell if the coconut will taste good or not without cracking it open. If you got lucky you could devour it. Tender coconut pudding, is my favorite South-Indian dessert. Last year, when I visited Kerala – the land of coconut trees, I made this pudding quite a few times and never got tired of it because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to get the same taste until I visit again.

Last weekend, I found coconuts at an Asian supermarket. I took my chances and bought a few. First thing after getting home, I cracked it open and tasted the tender coconut and the coconut juice. I jumped up and down with joy, it tasted fresh just like the ones I get in Kerala. And then there I was busy making tender coconut milkshake and tender coconut pudding.

The milkshake tasted so refreshing and yummy…
