Coco-Loco: 13 Ways to Get Coconut Crazy

When I think of summer, my mind wanders to warm waters, sandy beaches with my toes dug in, and a big coconut with a straw. Granted, I have never actually experienced this combination, but a girl can dream. In lieu of this tropical paradise, my dreams turn to food, as they often do, and I can pretend I’m there thanks to the tropical taste of coconut in my own kitchen.

Whether I mix coconut into soup or enjoy it in a dessert, there isn’t anything else quite like the coconut. I love that we enjoy coconut water, coconut milk, and coconut flesh (and of course we can’t forget coconut bras!). It seems that coconut is having a resurgence in the food world, and we’ve expanded far beyond the tiki drinks and macaroons that people used to only know.

Are you cuckoo for coconut? Here’s the 13 best ways to embrace the coconut craze.
