How to make Fruity Coconut Water Slushes
The great thing about fruity coconut water slushes is that you get to choose which frozen fruit you like. You can try out a variety of fruits and see which ones work best. You could also add a bit of alcohol to spice up things even more. Adding some rum, for instance, will give your drink a pina colada feel and charm.
You can also use pineapple which goes really well with coconut water. Honey can be added as a natural sweetener to the drink to enhance its sweetness greatly.
Coconuts owe their name to Vasco de Gama’s sailors. It is believed that they called it “coco”. Since the coconut had a husk that resembled hair and took the form of a face too, they thought it looked like a spirit. The glory of the “coco” soon spread and reached England, where the suffix “nut” was eventually added.
Did you know falling coconuts are responsible for the death of 150 people every year? Just to give you some perspective, that is ten times more than those killed by sharks.
