Testing.... Coconut Juice

My Little Guy loves to try new things. Once he decides he wants to try something he won't quit talking about it. About two years ago he discovered coconut soda at the store. He found it in the Mexican section of our grocery and he LOVES it. Now, my husband who loves coconut detests it, but Little Guy thinks it is the greatest treat when I buy him a couple of bottles and put them in the refrigerator. A few weeks ago he saw a can of coconut juice and he just decided he wanted to try it. So when we were buying snacks I told him that we would buy a can for him to try. When we poured it into the cup he was very surprised that there were little pieces of coconut floating in the cup.



The moment of truth....


"Mom, this is definitely not coconut soda! Do they really drink this stuff on Survivor?"


So where is the can of coconut juice? Here... in the door of the refrigerator. You know how I feel about wasting. So any ideas on what you can cook with coconut juice?

A lot of Caribbean and Hawaiian dishes use coconut. Maybe some kind of jerk chicken?

I like to put some on my salmon steaks. With a dash of tony's it gives it a little kick, or you can do like Black Betty mix it with some vodka

My husband LOVES jerk chicken so I will have to give that a try AND he loves salmon so that one sounds tempting too. What a good idea to substitute the coconut for pineapple juice...

I may wind up having to buy another can!

You should get a real coconut and share that experience with him!

Thanks for stopping by! I don't mind the footprints on the ceiling. It adds character! None of my neighbors have it either, but I'm sure once they see it, they'll all want footprints on the ceiling too. You're a trend setter!
