Using a butcher knife carefully cut a opening in the top of the young coconut. I usually make 4 cuts in the top essentially cutting a square.
Remove the top!
Filter the coconut water.
Carefully cut the coconut in half.
Using a spoon separate the young coconut meat from the inside of the coconut.
Remove any brown fiberous bits from the young coconut meat.
Put the young coconut meat in a blender.
Pour in the filtered coconut water. Add 5-6 ice cubes. Optionally, if you have frozen pineapple you can add a cup or two.
Add a banana.
Add 2 tablespoons of honey.
Blend for around 30 seconds.
Serve! Mint is optional.
