Coconut water is so trendy these days and no wonder. It hydrates more than water and isn't that something we all need in the winter time? However, I find it's really hard to get a hold on and it tends to be really expensive. I looked everywhere in Denmark to find a decent prized coconut water and what really struck me as a problem, was the fact that no grocery store, no matter how much they've specialized in niche diets, had coconut water. I googled how to make substitutes for coconut water and found out it was so easy. So easy, I had to add it to my "Basic How To"-series.
- 2 cups of coconut milk
- 2 cups of water
You just put it in a container, I used a mason jar and shake it. That's pretty easy, right?
It tastes really sweet and can be a bit clumpy, but it's a very cheap alternative to buying coconut water. I could find coconut milk in almost every grocery store and so I thought I would share this recipe with you guys, as you may be in the same position as me, where coconut water hasn't become mainstream enough to be in grocery stores. I use this milk in smoothies and it makes it really creamy.
I hope you guys are having a great day!
