Coconut Limeade Ingredients 

  • Coconut milk: I prefer to use full-fat coconut milk for this recipe. Full-fat coconut milk will produce a creamier drink.
  • Lime juice: Freshly squeezed lime juice adds a perfect amount of tang to this drink. You can also add lemon zest for more freshness and citrus flavor.
  • Sugar: I’ve used granulated sugar to add sweetness to the drink. Feel free to substitute sugar for sweetened condensed milk or any other sweetener that suits your taste.
  • Crushed ice: Blending crushed ice with other ingredients creates a slushy-like consistency and adds a pleasant thickness and texture to the drink.


How to Make Coconut Limeade

  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until frothy and smooth.
  • Divide the mixture between the glasses and garnish each with a lime wheel. Serve immediately and enjoy.
