Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut water
  • 1/2 cup hibiscus tea (brewed strong)
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk (from a can) mixed well
  • 1-2 Tablespoons honey (or agave if vegan, optional)
  • 1/3 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced, plus more for finishing

Instructions

  • Add ice to two glasses. Set aside.
  • Add the coconut water, tea, coconut milk, and honey to the jar of a blender, and blend for a few moments to combine. 
  • Add the strawberries, and blend for just a second (if you want them to remain chunky in the drink, like the original), or several seconds (if you want them to be pureed, more like a milkshake or smoothie) until you get the consistency you prefer.
  • Divide the drink between the two prepared glasses. Garnish with additional strawberry slices, and enjoy!

Notes

  • I used Celestial Seasonings Red Zinger tea, but you can also use Tazo Passion Tea for this recipe. You can use any hibiscus tea you prefer, but I recommend one of these two, if you can find them.
  • You can use full fat or light coconut milk for this. Just make sure it is mixed well before measuring.
