Quick Paleo Snack – Coconut Pieces
This is a short post about these easy Paleo snacks – coconut pieces. They’re literally just the meat from the inside of ripe coconuts chopped into small pieces.
What Are Coconut Pieces
This is just the coconut meat from a fresh coconut (not dried into shreds or flakes). The meat is removed from the hard shell of the coconut and chopped into small chunks.
They’re ready to eat – they are crunchy but moist and are quite filling as a snack. Note that coconut pieces do go bad quickly, so consume right after you open the package and make sure the coconut pieces are crunchy still.
Where Can You Buy Coconut Pieces?
I found these in the UK just a few weeks ago, but I’ve heard that they’re being sold in the US as well now.
In the US, they’ve been spotted in some Whole Foods. You can also buy your own brown coconut from stores and chop it up to get at the coconut meat inside (but it’s quite a bit of work). You’ll also find that the insides of brown coconuts will be a bit gooey as they’ll have more of the juice around.
