Coconut Water Shaved Ice With Strawberry Basil Syrup


1 pint strawberries, quartered
2 tablespoons basil, torn (about 4 large leaves)
1/2 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 pint coconut water (from a box is fine)

Pour coconut water into ice cube tray and freeze.

Cut strawberries into quarters. Combine in a pot with sugar and 3/4 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat, turn heat to low and simmer 10 to 15 minutes, until tender. Strain and discard solids, and refrigerate syrup until completely chilled, at least 2 hours.

Pop the coconut water cubes into the blender and crush until fine.  Scoop into a cup or bowl and drizzle with syrup.

  1. Okay, so coconut water ice cubes is the best idea I’ve ever heard of. Thanks for the tip (and the recipe – I’ll definitely be trying this when I get my new VitaMix!)

    • Haha! I know! I read somewhere that you even can have edible flowers in your ice-cubes (but the coconut icecube thing seems to be so much better!) What is a VitaMix?

    Coconut water is full of minerals and trace minerals that our body needs. The great thing is that it is tasty too. –
