Before I Hit The Twig: Drink Coconut Milk Using A Straw!

Coconut Milk or Juice is actually the coconut water inside of a coconut. In the Philippines, it is simply called Buko Juice, a refreshing and healthy drink for me. Since I am very sensitive to water (it has to be the real mineral water and not just filtered one lest my stomach would give me a grinding pain), and clear cola drinks like Sprite or 7-Up isn't good on an empty stomach, Buko Juice is the best option at all times.

There are many ways to get that natural delicious water from inside the coconut. One way is listed as one of the tasks in the book " 2001 Things To Do Before You Die" -that is: to use a straw. I have marked this completed.

You can also choose to break it open in half so you, not only can get the juice out but taste that yummy pulp (the buko) as well...
Drinking Buko Juice in Tayabas, Quezon
...break the shell in half, save the juice and then eat the buko using the spoon made out of buko shell...

Or you can even put a halo-halo flavor just like the Kagay-anons with their famous Buko Halo...
