Which fruit combination is not good?
- Bananas - because they are such a ripe fruit, they will break down in the water and change the flavor of the coconut water.
- Avocados - another fruit you do not want to add to an infused water.
There's no surprise here that coconut water goes great with tropical flavors, but it also goes great with these fruits:
See this Coconut Infused Water on my website that uses peaches and fresh mint.
- Store the water in the refrigerator.
- But keep in mind, 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.
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.
