Take Yourself to Italy with This Lemon Coconut Fuzzy Water

Maybe you’ve had the joy and Ahhhh of gulping down a Lemoncocco while traveling in Italy. This non-alcoholic beverage does the trick in satisfying thirst, replenishing electrolytes and simply making you feel good in summer’s heat.

While visiting a dear friend on a sizzling day, she handed me a can of Lemoncocco and said: “You’ve got to try this!!! I’d order cases of it if it wasn’t so dang spendy, as in $2-$3 per can.” Yikes.

After that endorsement, I not only tasted but devoured an entire can in a couple of minutes flat. So damn good!
Being the good do-it-yourselfer that I am, I immediately looked at the list of ingredients to see what could be so special and proprietary that there had to be that huge pricetag. Nothing. Then again, it is imported from Italy.

I suggested my pal just whip up her own version, but that was not met with jumping enthusiasm so I did.
Here ya go, Stephanie. This one’s for you!!

1 can well-chilled lemon flavored sparkling water, unsweetened. I love LaCroix brand.
1/4 cup coconut milk, canned or refrigerated
6 drops liquid stevia
juice of 1/2 lemon – no fake stuff!!!

Mix all together in a tall glass. Sit back in your favorite lounge chair on the deck, pretend you’re on the veranda in an Italian villa, and drink up. Don’t be surprised when you hear Italian children playing and someone approaching you with a beautiful antipasti platter.

    I love this. Blended it with ice and it was delicious.
    A few flakes of coconut would probably enhance the flavor even more

      Oh yeah, Edel! So glad you love it too. Great idea to boost the coconut with some flakes. A drop or two of coconut extract would bump it way up as well! Thanks so much for commenting.
