This taste of paradise makes for a great breakfast in bed idea or an incredible party treat. Get the scoop on these Coconut Smoothie Bowls:
Coconut Smoothie Bowls
Half coconut per person, drained of coconut water
Star fruit, sliced
Edible flowers, I used violet and violas
To crack coconuts take the blunt end of a large knife or a mallet and hit coconut in the middle rotating in circles. The coconut will begin to crack. When it does, strain the coconut water into another container. I substitute the coconut water for the water in making my smoothie. Continue cracking until coconut is in half.
Fill each coconut about 2/3 full with smoothie and then arrange toppings. If your coconut does not sit up on its own you may want to place in bowl. This is fun breakfast in bed idea or great for a party.
*An even simpler idea – instead of smoothie bowls just use the coconuts as fruit bowls.
