Coconuts grow on large palm trees known scientifically as Cocos nucifera.
Despite the name, the coconut is botanically considered a fruit rather than a nut. Coconut water is the juice found in the centre of a young, green coconut. It helps nourish the fruit. As the coconut matures, some of the juice remains in liquid form while the rest ripens into the solid white flesh known as coconut meat. Coconut water forms naturally in the fruit and contains 94% water and very little fat.
Coconuts take 10–12 months to fully mature. Coconut water typically comes from young coconuts about 6–7 months of age, though it's also found in mature fruit. An average green coconut provides about 0.5–1 cups of coconut water.
I first encountered Zayt Africa products at the Tukutune Pwani Festival (Mombasa Cultural Festival) in Mombasa. I tried their Coconut "ice cream" and was immediately hooked. When I got back home, I checked out their website and decided to try the Coconut Water! What an amazing product. The Coconut Water was like a delicious healthy dessert!
Zayt Africa coconut flour wins all day,every day. My family used to cringe at the thought of me baking some mahamris. Now, all they ask is whether they would be enough to last a few days. You should definitely get your hands on a couple of these before the whole world gets to know your secret recipe. Shukran Zayt Africa!!
