Lime in the Coconut Drink

2 06 2010
This is another great refreshing summer drink using fresh coconut water. Refer to my recipe, Sunrise Shake, for further instructions on opening a Thai coconut. I also have a link to a You Tube video in my links section.

Water from 1 young coconut

Meat from 1 young coconut

1 banana, preferably frozen

½ lime, juiced

1-inch piece of fresh vanilla

2 oranges, juiced

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. You may strain this for a smoother texture or drink it as it is.
