Coconut is the fruit of the coconut palm. It’s used for its water, milk, oil, and tasty meat. Grated coconut is made by splitting the whole coconut and using a standard grater or scrapper to scrape off the white meat inside the split halves. The water and meat can be used for cooking or can be consumed raw. The coconut milk is made by squeezing and extracting the milk from the freshly grated coconut.
