Coconut Water Chiller

Share

Coconut water!  It’s everywhere.  Have you noticed?  I recently picked up a bottle to see what it was all about and now I’m hooked.  Coconut water is a low-calorie (about 5 cal/oz), ultra-hydrating (due to the electrolytes) alternative to plain water, but I’m not a fan of drinking it solo.  So, I started poking around my refrigerator for refreshing, cooling ingredients to throw into the blender with my coconut water and ta-da!  I find this refreshing, and invigorating, and delicious.

    I mix half and half coc. water with club soda and strawberries with ice in a blender. Very refreshing also and no sugar added.

  2. My husband bought the sweetened coconut water and it was wonderful! Then I looked at the can – uh oh. The regular stuff is quite different. 😉 So it’s nice to have things like this to add to it! Thanks. Cheers~

      I’m a little scared to try the sweetened version, Carrie, for fear that I’ll like it too much 😉 Kinda like I wish I’d never tried a Breve Latte at Starbucks.

    Just made this today and it was SO delicious! I would definitely make this as a non-alcoholic “cocktail” – what a treat. Thanks for sharing. I love your recipes.

      Thanks, Susie!! I’m going to try one with CW, watermelon, lime juice and mint next time. I think it will also be a nice mocktail. Cheers!

    Jeanne – I agree! It tastes so clean and feels so good to my body. It’s a nice alternative to a cocktail because it looks fancy and tastes special. Cheers!

    This sounds great! I am fan of C.W. too. After so much eating and drinking this weekend, I am looking forward to some cleaner tastes this week. Time to detox a little…
