Make your own Coconut Water

If it involves, water, pastels & a beverage, count me in!

An offer for chips & dip will get me out the door in a hurry too!

But there’s something about drinking i c e  c o l d, pretty water filled with fruit that makes it taste so much better.  Yes, I guess I should mention also really good for you too.  But remember I’m a visual person, and if it’s pretty,  I’ll eat or drink it.  Whether it’s good or bad for you.

Last year, I started experimenting with Coconut Water before it was all the “rage”.  I even blogged about my favorite FIZZ drinks combos to cut calories & enjoy during the summertime months.

But if I don’t feel like making my own Coconut Water, I get it by the case from here.  It tastes GREAT! It’s perfect because it comes straight to your door & you don’t have to break a sweat going to the grocery store.

But if you want to make your own Coconut Water, it really is pretty simple.

Here’s what you’ll need to make Coconut Water:
A corkscrew or hammer & nail
1 or 2 coconuts
filtered water
sea salt
local/organic honey (if possible)

I have tried a few recipes, but this one is probably my favorite because she breaks it down so easily in her post.  Obviously, for a larger batch you would double the recipe, which is what I typically do at our house.  But head over to Eat Nap Play to get the full details.

My kids drink it up!  I honestly had no idea about the nutritional & good for you value of drinking coconut water until last year.  They love it with fresh fruit (yep, me too) & you know how kids are…they’ll stick their dirty little hands in the cup, just to munch on the fruit.   But in my book, that’s okay too.

 They say drinking coconut water will help reduce food cravings.
Well…to be quite honest, I guess I need to drink more of it, to see that benefit.  ;)
But it really does taste great along with keeping you hydrated in these hot, hazy, summertime days!

    Hi Kellie,

    I love how you added berries to the coconut water! I’m going to have to try this next time I make it. Thanks so much for sharing my post. I’m so glad you like the recipe! ;)

    This is really pretty! We drink coconut water pretty frequently here in Costa Rica, but it’s the kind that’s just the water straight from the coconut, not jazzed up with sweeteners or anything. Love the idea to prettify it with fruits, whether or not I decide to add extra flavorings. Thanks for sharing. I’m visiting you from Tidy Mom.

    This sounds wonderful and I love anything coconut. I am diabetic and checked out the coconut water in the store and it had sugar in it. I wonder if making it at home can cut some of the sugar.

    • says

      hmmm…i’m not sure about that. we add honey or agave to our mix. which i know is sugar, but people in our family who have diabetes say they eat agave in moderation. sorry i can’t help you more. maybe google to see???
