Raspberry Coconut Water Smoothie

I love coconut water. I love it so much that I, no joke, looked into attaching myself to a coconut-water IV drip. Turns out it’s a thing (number 8 on this list), and all of a sudden I felt a lot less lonely in this world.

Then I remembered that in my many conversations about the electrolyte-rich thirst quencher, I found that a lot of people really don’t like the stuff, my boyfriend and brother included. I couldn’t believe it, although I do have a theory.* But before I bore you with conspiracies, let me just say that I hold a glimmer of hope that people can become coconut-water converts, and I’m crossing my fingers that smoothies like this one might do the trick.

Raspberry Coconut Water Ingredients

My brother tells me that to him coconut water tastes salty. I don’t get that at all, but with his palate in mind, I added a few fixings into my usual plain coconut water routine.

To make this particular smoothie, I blended a cup of coconut water, a half cup of frozen raspberries, a few ice cubes, and some honey for added sweetness. 

That’s it! Adapt it to your own tastes and enjoy. Think of this more as a springboard for including coconut water in your smoothies, and less like a recipe that you need to follow exactly. 

*Oh and as for that theory of mine. I’ve noticed that the same people who’ve said they don’t like coconut water, like Kombucha. Whereas I can’t stand that grossness. So maybe there’e some kind of enzyme something or other to explain all of this? Maybe? All I know is I’m convinced there’s something there.
