Now, those of you who know me, or follow my posts on the internets, know that I am all about the proverbial "balance" in life. Yes, I like eating peanut butter off the spoon, I indulge in my not so present sweet tooth when it calls, adore bread, and also love to imbibe in good wine. And REALLY indulge when it is REALLY good wine alongside cheese!
Well today (Friday!), I wasn't feeling like a glass of wine when I got home from my 40 minute beach walk. Nope, I wanted something more festive on this hot and sticky day in the jungle, and so I got to thinking. What are some of my other fave things? Well coconut of course, but I am also in love with lime right now. And wouldn't you know it, my kitchen just happened to be stocked!
Whoa! Coconut Lime "Creamsicle" Cocktail!
1.5 fl oz shot of coconut RUM*
1/4 cup full fat, organic coconut milk
juice of 1 whole lime
1 cup ice
1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia (or to taste)
Blend until still a bit chunky and a little frothy. Pour over more cubes. Savor (or down, like I did). :)
With much love, and pura vida,
*PS. Yes, this is a post about BOOZE. Like it or lump it people, alcohol is part of this gal's healthy life. Not forever, not for every day, but yes. I enjoy it. But this does not mean you should, have to, or need to too. XO
