This video makes it so easy!  Notice that he uses the backside of the cleaver! 
I'm gonna go wack my coconut blend it all together and eat it with my kale chips!

Yea, it really works just as easy as the guy shows in the video.  It's amazing.  But, I learned something about coconuts today.  I ain't from around here and half the veggies look like aliens to me; I am doin' my best to get California veggie savvy though.  The big brown hairy coconuts are fully mature and even though you can open them easy if ya know how, the meat inside is really hard to scrape out.  But, those funny shaped white ones with the hide already peeled off are young and tender and the meat is real easy to scrape out and much, much better tasting.
The one I had today was an old brown hairy one and it was kind of gnarly tasting, almost kind of soapy-like.  It was weird, but I ate it anyway and I'm still alive so it must have been ok. :o  From now on I'm stickin with the young ones with the hide peeled off!
