Brief summary of how to open a coconut (and relieve stress): Hammer Nail into
Eyes of Coconut. Drain. Wrap in towel and hammer around the midsection of the
coconut on cement (you'll have to hit this hard so don't try it on the counter).
Hammer into several chunks. Carefully slice the meat off the husk with a knife,
slicing away from you. Use a vegetable peeler to remove any more husk pieces
from the meat. Add 1/2 c diced coconut meat to blender and blend with 2 1/2 c water and pinch of stevia leaf, agave nectar, or honey and 1/3 of a vanilla bean. Strain through sieve (use doubled up cheesecloth if you want to avoid pulp).
