Prickly Pear Coconut Water

pricklypearHave you ever had prickly pear (aka cactus pear)? This was my first time using it and boy did I learn my lesson. There wasn’t a sign for this deceptive little fruit but I like trying new foods so I picked it up and put it into my cart. ¬†Someone came over and asked if I had just picked it up with my bare hands and warning me that I should not have. I said yes, not thinking anything of it. A few seconds later and it all made sense. For the next hour or so, it felt like I had several tiny splinters!

Lesson learned. Don’t handle this fruit without gloves! But don’t let that scare you. It is absolutely delicious.
