Minty coconut drink...
Having grown up in the land of coconuts i must admit i do have a soft spot for them and use it quiet liberally and lovingly in my cooking. Its delicate flavour, and the creamy texture gives an instant lift to any dish. Very often it helps to remedy goof ups , in my case i should say almost everytime. I am quiet poor in my judgements with salt u see! So cooking without coconuts would certainly make me go nuts!
What i am going to share with you is a supremely simple tender coconut drink with zingy lemon and mint flavouring. My favourite part in this recipe is that i get to use the meat too.
I took ..
Tender coconut water - 1 large glass
juice of half a lemon
sugar according to taste
crushed ice as much as you want
meat of one coconut
very finely cut mint leaves...
Now pour the coconut water, lemon juice , meat of the coconut and sugar in a blender and blintz it just twice...
Fill the glass with crushed ice and pour it over and top it with freshly chopped mint and enjoy!!!
