I am always on the lookout for fun drinks to replace my old diet soda habit (so long Coke Zero). But it can be really hard to find those that are low enough in sugar and don't have artificial sweeteners.
Recipe for Low Sugar Coconut Limeade :
1 Cup Water
True Lime packets (2)
1/2 Can Coconut Milk (check label for a 0 or very low sugar brand)
Mint leaves to garnish
Then put the lime in the coconut and mix it all up! Put the lime coconut and drink it all up!
If you do not have True Lime, you could use actual real limes or other no sugar lime products like Stevita Lime packets. My blender is on the fritz and only does one speed now (= SUPER FAST) thanks to all the Jay Robb shakes I've made! So I'm in the market for a new one now.
Apparently even the Coconut Rums have no sugar (HOW is this possible?) and you could substitute the coconut milk with the alcohol for an Adult Version of this drink. I'm not a huge drinker (anymore) so I haven't tried it myself, but I hear it is awesome.
I originally saw a full sugar version of this recipe posted at She Wears Many Hats and knew I had to convert it for the Belly Fat Cure! Further proof that you can convert almost any recipe to low sugar and the BFC plan with a few good products and ideas. I do have to say, the Vegan Husband, who I thought would love this, did not like it at all. He is a contrarian though, and I'm chalking it up to that.
UPDATE: The S/C Value for this drink is 0/0, 0 grams of sugar and 2 grams of carbohydrates. That really depends on the coconut water you choose. I found mine a the big chain grocery, but Amazon carries it too (see below). Thanks @2busy for pointing out I forgot this!
