In Martinique, we speak rather of coco and no coconuts. Widely used in food, nutritional value varies depending on the state of growth at the time of consumption. Fresh coconut contains a significant amount of fat, sugar and fiber. It is rich in potassium, iron and magnesium... - Coconut water from the unripe coconut can be enjoyed for drinking. Besides, we always at the Fort de France market and sometimes sold on the beaches. 

Coconut milk is used to make desserts, ready meals or punches (see our recipe for Coconut Punch) 

The white coconut pulp from coconut cream which solidified during the growth of the fruit used to make cakes, ice cream and also coconut meat. This pulp is also used to produce coconut oil and cosmetics (soaps and sunscreens). 

The long leaves are used to make hats and roots can be used to prepare herbal teas...Did you know?
