Coconut meat, also known as coconut kernel, is the edible white flesh of the coconut fruit that lines the interior of the shell. Coconut meat has a mild, sweet flavor with a high fat content. It is used to make coconut oil, coconut cream, and coconut milk. Coconut meat is delicious as a topping for both sweet and savory dishes. Young coconut meat is particularly suitable for desserts due to its fresh flavor and soft texture.
