It is a mere coincidence that my friend Lipi asked to come up with some mocktail adding coconut water, and yesterday in Taj Bengal, the bartender offered me a very dainty Coconut Mango Mocktail. I was bit speculative about the combination of coconut water and lime juice, but eventually it was very appetizing.
Coconut water is also known as mother nature’s sport drink. It is hydrating, tasty, exotic and full of nutrients.
Mango with its unique properties, is also considered as gesture of friendship in India.
Mango, the king of fruits, and coconut, the queen of juices, let’s see how this pair, as a mocktail, allures you. Lemon garnish is a nostralgic nod to this mocktail.
You can use bottled juices, but I suggest to use fresh mango and coconut juice, if possible. The freshness of the drink is more enticing.
So on Foodie Saturday, here I am, with a coconut mango mocktail, the perfect recipe for this torrid summer.
(For 1 glass )
1/2 cup mango juice or ripe mango cubes
1/4 cup fresh or canned coconut water
1tsp lime juice
Combine all ingredients in a blender till smooth.
Serve in your best or tall glasses.
Use lime slices to decorate.
Don’t think, try it, serve it to your dear ones and enjoy the shower of praises and let me know how it seduced the taste buds.☺
