  • We always used a large nail and hammer. Made two holes.
    Drained the milk
    Used the hammer to pound the coconut into about 2 inch pieces.
    Peel or eat the white meat off them.

  • if you want to juice out of it you can drill it or you just take a large, heavy knife and hack at it. they are tough to open though

  • As kids we would throw it on the grown, outside.

  • Hammer & chisel, and a big strong UPS guy! LOL the one and only time we ever had a whole coconut, I was about 10 - we coudln't get it open (just my mom & younger sibs) so when the UPS guy dropped some stuff up we begged him to crack it open for us and he did!
