Raspberry Lime Coolatta

Raspberry Lime Coolatta

 

Blazes it’s hot.  When it gets this hot all I want to do if put my feet up, order take out and enjoy an ice-cold drink.   You know me, I like to mess about in the kitchen so I was thinking of what I could do with my absolute favorite berry – the raspberry.   How could I kick it up a notch and I immediately thought of Coconut water and all the amazing benefits it would provide in this blistering 89 degree weather and my Raspberry Lime Coolatta was born.

A couple of notes.  I froze the coconut water in ice trays, crushed it in the blender and then added the syrup to the cup.  I didn’t just dump everything in the blender, which you can totally do, but if  you want to mix it up and have different syrup flavor options – do what I did.  Also, if you want to turn this into an adult beverage, I recommend Tequila. I hope you enjoy the first of many cold drinks I plan to share.

    I’ve never had coconut water, I don’t care for the coconut flavor. I love raspberry though.

    If tastes half as good as it looks, this is a real treat. Like the adult option of adding a little tequila.
