So long, summer! It was great while it lasted. Refreshing coconut water doesn’t have to just exist within a tropical backdrop though. With the winter months heading our way, stay warm with these three hot coconut drinks ideas for enjoying Cocobella.
Coconut Water Hot Chocolate
Try this deliciously indulgent and easy to make hot chocolate with a healthy coconut water twist from The Diva Dish. We love her trick of subtracting milk for coconut water, providing a great source of electrolytes and potassium.
1 litre Cocobella coconut water
2 – 3 cups good quality cocoa powder
4 tbs. maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
- Add all ingredients to a pot and heat on stove medium low.
- Whisk ingredients quickly together while warming. Once ingredients have dissolved, heat to desired temperature.
- Serve immediately.
Hot Coconut Herbal Tea
There’s nothing like a warming mug of herbal tea on a cold winter’s night. This warming, zesty Hot Coconut Herbal Tea recipe via The Healthy Apple packs a flavorsome punch and goes down a treat on the chilliest of evenings. Try substituting purified water for Pure Cocobella when making this mulled-wine inspired herbal tea for an extra twist of flavour.
4 cups Cocobella coconut water
1 tsp. honey
½ tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. coconut flakes
1 Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced.
1 tbsp. fresh lemon zest
3 organic tea bags
1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh mint (or coriander)
- In a medium pot, combine water, cinnamon, coconut flakes, apple slices, tea and lemon zest; bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes.
- Remove from heat and cover. Let steep for 20 minutes.
- Serve with fresh mint leaves.
First Press-inspired Cocobrew Coconut Coffee
Inspired by Melbourne-based First Press Coffee’s recipe, coconut-ify your morning coffee and ease your way into the day with the unlikely match-made-in-heaven of coconut water and coffee. We love their original iced coffee variation, but hot coffee works a treat too.
100 ml First Press Coffee
200 ml Cocobella Coconut Water
Ice cubes (optional)
Simply add 1 part First Press Coffee to 2 parts Cocobella coconut water in a tall glass. Try it with a squeeze of lime for a sweet and sour twist!
