Raspberry Coconut Ice

If you’re a big fan of coconut water like I am, try this recipe perfect for a hot summer day. It’s easy, cool, refreshing, and a sweet treat without the guilt.

All you need is some coconut water, your favorite Torani flavored syrup, an ice cube tray, and a blender. Coconut water’s benefits include its taste, which has only a hint of coconut flavor, and its potassium. It’s a great drink to replenish with after a long hike or workout.

Torani Italian syrups come in a wide range of over 100 flavors including fruity (raspberry, strawberry, orange), nutty (hazelnut, almond, coconut) and the truly unusual (lavender, chocolate and waffles, and even bacon!). Torani is a family owned business based in South San Francisco so it counts as a Bay Area treat. The CEO is one of my business school classmates, Melanie Dulbecco. Torani syrups can be used in a variety of ways, most often added to coffee, sparkling water, iced tea or snow cones. You can find more recipes on the company website.

Simply freeze some coconut water in an ice cube tray, blend the frozen cubes in your blender until you reach a shave ice texture, transfer to a serving bowl or cup, and pour your choice of flavored Torani syrup on top. It’s that simple, and it’s that good.
