Mango and Apple Berry Slushie

cocobellakidscopy1

As the school day comes to an end, and the kids have endured a hot day at school, I always like to make them a cold drink to cool them down.

A slushie is one drink that they enjoy and most of the time I use apple juice as a base. But when I attended the Bloggers BBQ I came upon another alternative that I could use and it sounded much healthier.

Cocobella Kids Coconut water is a healthy coconut water drink for kids made from 70% coconut water, 30% fruit juice and nothing else. It comes in two yummy fruit flavours, Apple Berry Breeze and Tropical Island. A few days ago I was very grateful that Cocobella sent me some Cocobella Kids coconut water to review. I couldn’t wait to try this out and use it as a base for the kid’s slushies.

Here are my kids Mango and Apple Berry Slushie!

My kids loved the slushie and slurped it up with happy faces. They enjoyed this recipe better with the coconut water than when I used the apple juice. I sneaked a couple of sips before I handed it over to them and was very happy with the taste, very refreshing! The coconut water is naturally rich in minerals (especially potassium) making it a great source of hydration and fuel for normal growth and development in kids. I have even put a Cocobella Kids coconut water in their lunch boxes to help their little bodies cope better on those hot days. The coconut water comes in a great 200ml size tetra pak (BPA free) and fits well in their lunch box.

    I love the sound of these for me! I’ve thinking perfect affordable hangover cure. I’m not entirely sure that’s what Copabella had in mind though 🙂

      Ha ha, they could of course be used for other means of fixing our thirsts, hangovers included! Maybe not have the word “kids” on it though, lol!
