Coconut lemonade or Limonada de coco is a very refreshing, delicious drink and is very popular in warm climates such as the Caribbean. It is one of the drinks preferred by visitors, one of the most desirable, of those that are prepared in a very natural way and that helps to refresh us… Nothing better to spend those hot days.
Coconut lemonade is a unique flavor experience, presents a sweet variation with acid taste, which can also be enjoyed with liqueur and other fruits, ideal to accompany meals or become the dessert of the menu.
It is important to remember that lemons are rich in vitamin C, potassium, iron, calcium, and magnesium, which, without dismissing the calories of coconut and sugar, make this lemonade a good source of nutrition.
I met the coconut lemonade 5 years ago that I had the opportunity to travel to Cartagena, there is high demand there, due to the heat it makes in this place, this is a solution to those hot and stirring days.
From those days, when I could see how coconut lemonade was being prepared, is that I dare to make it at home, it is a way to please my family, refresh them and spend lunch. And since it was implemented in a restaurant where I worked, that coconut lemonade along with the mango biche lemonade, they were a success.
So it’s better that we don’t think about it anymore and dare to prepare it, it’s a very simple way to quench our thirst and its ingredients are very inexpensive and easy to get. I hope you like this recipe and enjoy it as much as I do.Español
