What is Coconut Water?
According to Healthline, here are a few interesting facts regarding coconut water:
- Coconut water is not to be confused with coconut milk.
- The water is actually the juice that is in the center of a young, green coconut. It's what helps nourish the fruit to grow and ripen.
- As the coconut grows and ripens, some of the juice remains in liquid form while the rest forms into the solid white flesh that we've come to know and enjoy as coconut.
- A few of the many health benefits are that it may help with kidney stones, diabetes and be good for your heart.
- It's low in calories and carbohydrates.
Coconut water is delicious, nutritious and when combined with fruit makes for a very fun non-alcoholic drink.
The next time you're reaching for a sports drink, remember that coconut water is probably less expensive and better for you!
Quick Tip: For this recipe I used a glass container. You could also use an infused water container.

- Coconut Water
- Pineapple Chunks
- Fresh Mint for garnish
Step 1| Add the Coconut Water
In a pitcher or infusion pitcher, add the coconut water.
Step 2| Add the Fruit
Next add the sliced peaches and pineapple chunks. Drain the pineapple chunks first before adding them to the coconut water. The added pineapple juice will over-power the flavor of the coconut water.
Step 3| Add Water
Finally add the plain iced water. Taste the mixture and see if it needs more water or more coconut water.
Step 4| Refrigerate and Chill
Place the pitcher in the refrigerate and allow the flavors to marry together for at least an hour before serving.
After the coconut infused water has had time to steep, add ice cubes to a glass and pour the water over the top. You could garnish with peach slices and a sprig of fresh mint. Drink and enjoy!

- Store the water in the refrigerator.
- But keep in mine, that when you add fruits to any infused water recipe, the water can begin to break down the fruit. Especially if you use a soft fruit like the pineapple chunks.
- You could freeze any leftovers in ice cube trays! Pop them out and store in a plastic bag to use the next time you prepare a fun drink to serve.
- You could always add alcohol to this drink, but keep in mind little ones if you're serving this at a party or large family gathering.
- The fruit may look tempting to them and they may not realize there is alcohol in the beverage.
