Popsicle To Sangria: 6 Interesting Ways To Enjoy Coconut Water

Speaking of hydrating your body during the summer, coconut water is the first thing that comes to everyone’s mind. The clear liquid inside young, green coconuts is packed with many essential nutrients, including electrolytes, particularly potassium. The taste of coconut water is subtly sweet with a touch of nuttiness. 

Easily available on the market during the summer, it is naturally low in calories and fat, unlike many juices. This delicious beverage is also a great choice to maintain fluid balance in the body after completing your daily exercise routine. But did you know coconut water can also be an amazing ingredient for your cocktails, popsicles and puddings? Here are six coconut water recipes to try: 

Coconut Water Lemonade 

Enrich your regular nimbu paani or lemonade with more nutrients by adding coconut water to the recipe. This wonderfully refreshing drink is made with freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar and ice, along with coconut water. It is usually served on summer afternoons, along with a garnish of mint leaves and lemon slices. 

Coconut Water Popsicle

Whether you are a ten-year-old child or a 40-year-old adult, sweet and refreshing popsicles can make anyone happy. To prepare this variation of the frozen treat, all you need is fresh coconut water, maple syrup and your favourite berries.
