Tender Coconut Lemonade


Want a natural refreshing drink, without artificial sweeteners but with lots of electrolytes and minerals? Then go for tender coconut water. So much of nutritional benefits can be obtained from tender coconut water, it helps keep your body hydrated by replacing the lost body fluids, promotes digestive system health and cures urinary track infections, has cooling effect on the body,  has loads of minerals specially has more content of potassium than bananas. So this lemonade is not only a refreshing drink but also very healthy with a mild ginger flavor and tangy lemon twist, the small tender coconut tit bits I have added makes it more delightful. Tender coconuts are naturally sweet and hence you don't have to add artificial sweeteners, but still if you find your tender coconut water to have less sweetness then add some sugar to adjust according to your taste. Try it and you will definitely love it.



INGREDIENTS

(Serves 2 glasses)
  1. Tender Coconut Water - 500 ml (From 2 tender coconuts) 
  2. Tender coconut pieces - From one tender coconut (Chopped into smaller bits) 
  3. Pepper powder - 1/4 spoon 
  4. Lemon - 1/2 of a lemon 
  5. Ginger - 1/4 inch piece (Crushed)
  6. Sugar - As required (Add only if the tender coconut water is not sweet) 


PREPARATION METHOD

  • Squeeze lemon and extract juice from it and set aside. 
  • In a jar add tender coconut water, lemon juice, pepper powder, crushed ginger, and sugar and stir well. 
  • Remove the ginger piece and add the chopped tender coconut pieces into the lemonade and serve. 

TIP 1: Instead of adding ice cubes chill the tender coconut water previously and use it for making lemonade. Ice cubes will dilute the lemonade and thereby affects the taste. 

TIP 2: Do not add sugar if the tender coconut water tastes sweet. 

TIP 3: You can also use orange juice instead of lemon. 

TIP 4: You can add tit bits of your favorite jelly instead of using tender coconut bits. 

TIP 5: You can prepare this lemonade with coconut water also.
