Translating to "Coconut Lemonade," Limonada De Coco is one of the most refreshingly satisfying drinks you can make this summer - and one of the easiest too.It is a drink sold everywhere in the Latin nation ofColombia, and for good reason. It's wildly delicious and extremely easy and quick to make. I once heard it described by a traveler there as, "like drinking a key lime pie." It's also one of my favorite beverages. Here's the recipe:

Yield:3-4 drinks

Time to make:5 minutes or less

1. Open the can of coconut milk and use a spoon to scoop the heavier coconut cream off the top and into a blender.

2. Pour about half of the thinner coconut water into the blender. Save the rest of the coconut milk for another use.
You can adjust the lime/sugar ratio as needed. I like to use 3 large limes and 5 tablespoons of sugar. Image: Martin Kuprianowicz

3. Add the lime juice, sugar, and ice to the blender.
