How to Freeze Fresh Raw Coconut

Coconuts are nutritious large seeds that grow in tropical climates on coconut trees. Coconuts are composed of coconut meat and juice and can be processed to produce coconut milk and oil. Coconuts are an excellent source of fiber, vitamins (including B and C), minerals (including iron, zinc and potassium), protein and carbohydrates. Coconuts are used in main courses in Thai, Indian and Vietnamese cuisine and are often used in desserts, such as ice cream, puddings, cookies and pies. Coconut will last up to six months in the freezer.

Step 1

Open the coconut and remove the meat.

Step 2

Use a grater to grate the coconut or process the coconut meat with a food processor.

Step 3

Place the processed coconut in the freezer bag or plastic storage container. If using a freezer bag, squeeze all the air from the bag before sealing it. Whether using a bag or container, always leave a little room at the top so the coconut can expand when frozen.

Step 4

Seal the bag or container and place the coconut in the freezer.
