Coconut Coolers

Summer makes me crave allll of the coconut recipes. coconut lime sugar cookies, coconut pie oats, creamy coconut zoodles, etc. Gimme all of them! One of my favorite cocktails are my Coconut Margaritas. I wanted to make a new coconut drink that was a little lighter and could be made without alcohol for the kids. These Coconut Coolers were exactly what I wanted! And even better? You don’t have to drag out the blender to mix these up!

These coolers couldn’t be easier to make and only require a few simple ingredients! All you need is a can of coconut milk, some cream of coconut, lime juice, and club soda! Because cream of coconut has added sugar, I did not add additional sweetener, however, if you are serving these to kids or if you prefer more sweetness, you can stir in some sugar or even honey or agave.

On their own, these are perfect for summer sipping and will satisfy your pina colada cravings without all the added calories and sugar. If you want to add booze, add a couple of splashes of rum or vanilla vodka!

Another thing I love about these coolers is while they are perfect in the summer with some sliced strawberries, you could also make them winter and holiday-friendly by garnishing with some ground cinnamon and cinnamon sticks!
