In preparation for the 4th of July—my favorite time of year—I’ve been experimenting with cooling drinks to help beat the heat. This Coconut Mango Cocktail is refreshing, simple and quick.
Coconut water is very hydrating, full of potassium, low in fat and calories. It’s been called “Mother Nature’s Sports Drink.” Mango is usually sweet and full of fiber, vitamin A, C and B6. Together, these two superfoods create the perfect summer drink. Enjoy!
