Did I mention yesterday it’s India? It’s a freaking 38 degree Celcius in Bangalore and 40.5 degrees in Kolkata!!! And it’s only the first half of April! I am swearing by water and natural drinks to keep myself hydrated.
I made this tender coconut water based drink yesterday and kept it in the fridge. It was a pure Joy in a Jug. It’s much interesting than plain water and a little break from the usual lemonade. Perfect for the Summers!
Tender coconut water is high in electrolytes, chlorides, potassium and magnesium.
It’s all natural and an exceptional fluid to hydrate and rejuvenate you
This recipe doesn’t contain any added sugar – so much much better from the colas!
JOY IN A JUG – TENDER COCONUT & PINEAPPLE SUMMER REFRESHER –
Recipe Type: Beverage
Lemon – ½ a lemon, sliced
Mint – few leaves, crushed
Tender coconut – 1
Pineapple juice – 1 glass
Ice cubes – few
In a jug empty a tender coconut
Add pineapple juice to the jug
Muddle sliced lemon and mint leaves and add to the jug
Add a few ice cubes in the jug and give a good stir
Keep it in the fridge and enjoy whenever you want to.
I used a Tropicana 100% Pineapple juice so not adding any more sugar.
If you want to add sugar and make it sweet add palm candy sugar (taal michri in Bengali) instead of white/brown sugar. They are not polished and processed and is a better option than regular sugar.
Enjoy a refreshing drink.
Until next time, Cheers!
