Coconut Water Lemonade Recipe
Delicious and hydrating drink
4 cups coconut water, canned or fresh (fresh young coconuts are best)
5 T fresh squeezed lemon juice
3 T sugar or honey
2 cups ice
Mint leaves for garnish
In a pitcher, combine the coconut water, lemon juice, and sugar together. Stir to mix well. Add the sliced lemons and ice into the pitcher. Pour the lemonade into glasses and garnish with mint leaves.
If using honey (which I prefer), start with a cup of coconut water at room temperature and add honey while mixing very well. If the honey is slightly warm this can help it mix but please do not use the microwave to warm the honey. Sitting the jar into a bowl or pot of hot (not boiling water) will do the trick (no fire under pot).
