#WorldCoconutDay-Cocktails, Chocolates & Cheesecakes!

Coconuts are often referred to as the wonder fruit for the myriad benefits they provide to human beings. Known as the “tree of life,” it provides food, raw materials, and water to everyone.

Today, on World Coconut Day, several seminars and awareness campaigns are organized in Asia Pacific, with many farmers and businessmen exchanging ideas about coconut production and how to increase it.

The wonder fruit is useful for a variety of health benefits. It helps digestion, reduces obesity, and brings down the body temperature during summer. It contains antioxidants, antifungal, and antiviral and antibacterial elements.

The Cheesecake Factory is celebrating this day with a new flavor of cheesecake, first introduced in late July for National Cheesecake Day.

The restaurant chain’s Coconut Cream Pie Cheesecake is made with coconut cheesecake, vanilla custard, and a layer of chocolate, all on a coconut macaroon crust. For every slice of Coconut Cream Pie Cheesecake sold now through July 29, 2022, The Cheesecake Factory will donate 25 cents to Feeding America.

Here’s a simple cocktail recipe you can try at home:

Ingredients & Method

  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk {I use full fat}
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 8 cups cubed ice
  • Place all ingredients in a blender & blend until smooth.

Coconut coffee – a taste of the tropics can be an all-day treat!. If a coffee ever warranted a tiny umbrella, it’s this one!

Go nuts over coconuts!
