To kick off the Canada Day celebrations (and for my fellow American friends, forth of July), I prepared this simple Coconut Lemonade just in time for the BBQ parties happening over the next couple of days. Natural coconut water is a great alternative to plain H2O not only for hydration but it is said to offer other great benefits such as helping with weight-loss efforts, facilitates digestion, reduces blood pressure, and even promotes healthier skin.
I personally love the taste of coconut water, especially from a fresh coconut! But, fresh coconuts are obviously not all that convenient especially in our country, so I opt for the next best option – Thirsty Buddha’s line of Coconut Water products, they are all-natural, gluten free, with zero fat and zero cholesterol. Now, Kyle isn’t all that keen on the natural flavours coconut water offers, therefore, he was actually the inspiration behind this simple beverage recipe. Thanks babe!
