Ilaneer / Tender Coconut Drink

Last year, during summer a sweet friend of mine Mrs.Meena Prakash had asked me for some tender coconut or ilaneer recipes to escape from the heat.At that time I was not aware of this drink, but had seen some dishes with it like puddings etc. But during last Ramadan this was prepared at home and I found it was very good for the body after a whole day's fasting.This would be a nice, cool and refreshing drink for all of you suffer excess summer heat! Enjoy Meena! :)

Ingredients used
Tender coconut 1
sugar according to taste
cardomam 1

How I prepared
Make a hole on the ilaneer (as usual we do for drinking) and pour all the sweet water to a cup.Cut the tender coconut / ilaneer. Remove the white fleshy part with a spoon.It is easy to do.Put this into the jar of juicer with the ilaneer vellam / tender coconut water, cardomam and enough sugar.Blend this until smooth. Sieve it if you like and add ice cubes also.
