Refrigeration and Freezing

This is the best way to keep your coconut meat tender and water fresh.

  • Coconut water could be refrigerated for a day or two only and will most probably retain the flavor only for one day even following refrigeration. There is no point in freezing the coconut water, as this does not help to keep them fresh as inside the coconut shell.
  • Unbroken coconut in shell can refrigerated for a month, while the broken coconut meat intact in the shell or removed and peeled into air-tight containers are some of the best ways to keep the coconut fresh for a week or fortnight only, provided you do not allow moist surfaces to get in touch like your moist knife using which you shell out the meat.
  • This is not a good idea to keep the coconut inside the freezer, though preserves the coconut does not keep them fresh. Instead, a better idea for freezing is to grate the coconut meat and freeze them, this way you can keep them fresh for months.
  • Coconut milk can be kept fresh for a few days by both refrigeration or freezing only.



This is one of the best ways to keep the coconut meat dry and reconstitute when you are in need. Desiccated coconut is also used to extract coconut oil, which has its own usage.
