Coco Choco Delight

Tender coconut water  is the best way to beat the summer heat and keep the heat and thirst at bay.I became so obsessed with this drink, I started filling it up in cans at home. I like the coconut scoops the vendor gives, but sometimes it so thick and not so tasty. Once i took 5 drinks to store and the coconut (tender) collected was more. I had a vacation in hand and no plan on mind, so entered the kitchen to give some "shape" to this coconut.
So here is the recipe:

Tender Coconut - 5
Milk - 1 glass
Jaggery - 3 tblspn
Sugar - 3 tblspn
Dry Fruits - as per your taste(Almond, Pista grated or cut into smaller pieces)
Chocolate - 5 to 6 pieces of a bar(Keep the chocolate in the freezer)

Add tender coconut, milk, jaggery, sugar and mix and blend it in the mixer.
Make sure that the milk is not too much in quantity, else the dish becomes a shake :)
Place the blended cream in freezer
Grate the Chocolate pieces into fine powder.
Cut some chocolate pieces into very smaller pieces.
Add the cut pieces of chocolate, dry fruits into the cold mix and mix it completely.
Decorate the mix with the grated powder and almonds as in the picture and place it back in the fridge for it to be cool and yummy :)

And then enjoy !! :)
