Watermelon, Orange and Tender Coconut Cooler is a great drink to enjoy during Summers. Summer in Baroda is not what Summers used to be in Coimbatore. And the same applies to monsoons too. While in Coimbatore, a slight drizzle will change the weather to a pleasant chill, the rains in Baroda simply make you hot and sticky, thanks to humidity. So, yes the monsoons have begun. But the heat is not gone yet. And i just wanted to make sure that we stay hydrated despite sweating like pigs.
I made this Watermelon, orange and tender coconut cooler on a whim. I had no idea what i was doing. I just blitzed everything up and we had this gorgeous drink to make us feel fresh and light through out the day. This recipe uses fresh tender coconut water. I do not know if canned ones will work. But you can always give it a try.
