An easy blended coconut limeade. Slushy, sweet, and refreshing!
Although Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer, here in Arizona, it already feels like summer. The temps have been in the 90’s and it has become necessary to have a cold drink to sip on if you’re outside for more than a few minutes. We’re planning on grilling this weekend, and I can’t wait to have one of these frosty coconut limeades in my hand to keep me cool while out in sun.
This drink tastes like summer in a glass. Between the sweet coconut, tart lime, and the slushy consistency, it will have you feeling like you should be sitting on a beach somewhere. And if there are no beach visits in your immediate future, at least this frosty drink will keep you cool during the warmer months.
This recipe couldn’t be simpler. It’s only one step and three ingredients. I made this as a mocktail because I’m currently pregnant, but I know that it would be fantastic with a heavy splash of alcohol added before blending (coconut rum, maybe?!). Play around with it and adapt it to your tastes. Cheers to summer!
Frozen Coconut Limeade
- 1 1/2 cups sweetened coconut milk see note
- 1 1/2 cups prepared limeade
- 4-5 cups ice cubes see note
- Juice of 3 limes
- Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Serve immediately.
I used Silk original sweetened coconut milk for this recipe. It's sold in the dairy aisle, near the milk. It is not overly sweet, which I prefer. If you want the drink to be sweeter you can add a few tablespoons of cream of coconut or agave nectar, to taste.
Instead of using regular ice cubes, I made ice cubes out of coconut milk, so that they wouldn't dilute the flavor of the drink. You can also make the ice cubes out of limeade or make some of both.
Feel free to add the alcohol of your choice before blending.
