Recipe: Caveman Coconut Cooler

Wifezilla's Caveman Coconut Cooler

1 cup frozen melon pieces
Juice of 1 lime
6 ice cubes
1 can of coconut milk
Stevia or sweetener of choice

Cut a cantaloup or other fresh, local melon in to ice cube-sized pieces. Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze. Put 1 cup's worth in a blender. Bag up the rest and keep in the freezer for future use. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until ice cubes are crushed. Makes 2 servings.

While this is a more paleo friendly recipe, low carbers not on induction might enjoy this every once in a while.

Approximate carbs per serving:
Melon - 6g
Lime - 2g
Coconut milk - 5g
Stevia - 1g
Total: 14g

Remember, this is for 2 servings...around 10oz a piece. It is very easy to get carried away and drink it all. You might want to make this with a friend to be sure you share!

I love this. It needs to be served up with a little umbrella.

This is fabulous. I had intended to drink it during labor but had the baby too fast for that. The husband made this for me right after and it was I'd ever tasted in my life. Midwives loved it, too!
