Coco Fresco: Buko Juice and Buko Shake

Growing up in the south, where coconut trees grow abundantly, I have this natural appetite for buko (Filipino translation for coconut) and any food or drink made with it.

Grated young coconut meat is perfect for fruit salads. It is also fantastic for pies like the buko pies in Laguna. Local dishes prepared with gata (coconut milk) like ginataang monggo (mung beans with coconut milk), laing (taro leaves with coconut milk), ginataang manok (chicken stew in coconut milk), and ginataang langka (unripe jackfruit in coconut milk) are simply delectable. Coconut water in itself is already refreshing. But you can add milk and sugar to make it creamier and tastier. Add some ice, blend it to make buko shake--delicious!  What is not to like in buko?

When I first tasted Coco Fresco buko shake, I can't resist falling in love with it. It is yummy and healthy too. The ice is fine. The milk makes it creamy but doesn't overpower the buko taste. And it is not that sweet--just perfect for my taste. What's more?  You can enjoy a serving of Coco Fresco Buko Shake for just Php35 (small size).
