Coconut Lemonade

Okay, you guys!!! Today I FINALLY get to share one of my most FAVOURITE summer drink recipes with you!! It’s my own spin on Lemonade and I can’t BELIEVE I haven’t been making this my entire LIFE. Such a summery tropical twist on your average lemonade. Every time I drink it I can just picture myself … toes in the water … ass in the sand, not a worry in the world, a coconut lemonade in my hand … life is good today. Life is good today… you get the drift! It’s a basically an oasis in a glass!

The beauty about this recipe is it tastes amazing as a Mocktail BUT if you’re planning on getting a little silly poolside you can add some vodka to it as well to shake things up a bit!! You know that’s what I’ll be doing this summer!! Because as they say … no great story ever started with a salad! LOL!!

Ok, let’s get to the goods!!

Jillian Harris Coconut Lemonade Recipe

Coconut Lemonade Ingredients (makes one pitcher):

  • 6 organic squeezed lemons
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup
  • 1/2 can of coconut cream
  • 4 cups of Water

Simple Syrup Ingredients:

  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar (or any sugar you would like to use!)
  • 1 cup water

Method:

1. Start by zesting one lemon, set aside.

2. Squeeze all lemon juice into your desired pitcher.

3. Combine lemon zest, 1 cup cane sugar and 1 cup of water to a small pot for the simple syrup. Bring to boil then simmer until mixture starts to thicken. Turn heat off and let sit to thicken further.

4. Pour one full can of coconut cream into a blender and blend until smooth.

5. Stir in 1/2 cup of simple syrup mixture to your lemon juice in your pitcher.

6. Add 1/2 of the blended coconut cream to the lemon juice and simple syrup in your pitcher. Stir until smooth.

7. Add up to four cups of water to your pitcher but make sure to taste after every cup and stop adding water when your taste buds are happy as some people prefer sweet lemonade and other’s don’t!

8. Fill glasses with fresh ice fill with coconut lemonade. Garnish with lemon or pineapple slices and ENJOY!!!

    This looks absolutely amazing, Jill! Added to my weekend to-do list 🙂

    Do you this would work with limes? I have a pile of limes to use up!!

  4. Jillian Harris

    June 9th, 2017 at 2:12 pm

    I haven’t tried it with limes yet but I think it would be delish!! If you try it, let me know how it turns out!! XOXO

    Just made this with six limes and half a can of coconut cream. Loved it! Perfect summer drink for a preggo lady ?

  6. Daisy

    June 24th, 2017 at 3:42 pm

    I just made it with limes.. I would add one less lime or more coconut cream. It was delicious!

  7. Jessica

    June 9th, 2017 at 2:19 pm

    Mmmmmm sounds so delicious!!

  8. Karen

    June 9th, 2017 at 3:15 pm

    Yum! The ingredients list says 1/2 a can but in the instructions it says pour the whole can. Which do you prefer? Excited to try this!

  9. Karen

    June 9th, 2017 at 3:20 pm

    OMG never mind! I see what to do ? Awesome pitcher, by the way!

  10. Elaine kaska

    June 9th, 2017 at 10:22 pm

    Wow sounds yummy I will try this recipe for sure thank you sweetie

    I’ve never heard of coconut lemonade before until now. This is practically combining the best out of both worlds! Thanks for sharing :)!

  12. Renée

    June 11th, 2017 at 3:07 pm

    What a clever pairing! As a tip, I decided to use liter mason jars instead of a pitcher. I put half the lemon juice in each jar along with, a quarter of the coconut cream, quarter cup of the simple syrup, then filled the rest with water. Coconut lemonade on the go! Thank you for the great recipe ?

  13. Jillian Harris

    June 11th, 2017 at 7:02 pm

    Ohhhhh good call, Renee!!! XOXO

  14. Renee

    This Renee is going to try this with rum! ;).
    Can’t wait!

    July 8th, 2017 at 7:50 am

    Is it one can of coconut cream or a half can? The ingredients list and the instructions are different. Thanks! 🙂

  17. Jillian Harris

    July 24th, 2017 at 8:56 am

    So, you want to pour one full can of coconut cream into the blender to make sure it’s all mixed up but you actually only add half of the coconut cream to the recipe! So save the other half for another recipe or make a double batch 🙂 I hope that helps!! XOXO

  18. Michelle

    June 12th, 2017 at 10:18 am

    This is sooo delicious! Mine separated in the fridge though, normal? Any tips?

  19. Jillian Harris

    June 13th, 2017 at 4:11 pm

    That happens and it’s totally okay!! Just give it a quick stir!! XO

  20. Andrea

    June 12th, 2017 at 10:29 am

    I am so excited to try this – going to make a pitcher of it for the morning of my wedding <3

  21. Jillian Harris

    June 13th, 2017 at 4:12 pm

    AMAZING IDEA!!! Can’t wait to hear all about it!! XO

    June 12th, 2017 at 3:51 pm

    Wow this looks amazing! Really wish we had trader Joe’s here in Canada!

  23. Jillian Harris

    June 13th, 2017 at 4:01 pm

    Me too!!! But you can use ingredients from any grocery store 🙂 xoxo

    OK!

    I have to say, this is one of my favourite blog posts! I love the content (obviously) and especially love the layout of the photos in a step by step process, it makes reading them so much more enjoyable when you can visually follow along! Not just ingredients and then final product, and I LOVED seeing YOU make everything!

    And yes, legit off to buy lemons!

  27. Jillian Harris

    June 13th, 2017 at 3:44 pm

    Hi Megan!! Thank you so much for your great feedback!!! I’m so happy to hear you loved the blog JUST as much as I love it!! Can’t wait to hear how your coconut lemonade turns out!! ENJOY!! XOXO

    Can not wait to make this with Rasberry Vodka!!! Hello summer??

  29. Jillian Harris

    OMG YUMMMM!!! Let me know how it tastes!! XOXO

  30. Jackie

    Sounds like the perfect drink for this mommy to be this summer. Thank you!!

  31. Jillian Harris

    Right?! It’s like a tropical escape in a glass!! XOXOXO

    Love your blog! I can hardly wait to try your coconut lemonade!!

  33. Leanne

    June 16th, 2017 at 5:34 am

    Yummm, I’m going to totally try this as I’ve got a dwarf Lemon tree full of ripe lemons. Yum. ?

  34. nikki

    June 16th, 2017 at 12:15 pm

    I LOVE coconut lemonade! I can’t get this recipe quite right though. I have massive meyer lemons, bigger than tennis balls, and they give out a ton of juice. I’m not quite sure how many of them translate into 6 lemons. Can you tell me what the ratio of lemon juice to coconut should be?

  35. Jillian Harris

    June 17th, 2017 at 8:11 am

    It TOTALLY depends on your taste buds!! If you like your lemonade more tart then use more lemons, if not, cut back on the amount! I would suggest juicing 3 of them and see how it tastes and adjust from there! XOXO

  36. Karisss

    June 17th, 2017 at 4:09 pm

    This was amazing!

  37. Cheryl

    June 24th, 2017 at 2:12 pm

    This drink sounds wonderful and something I would love, but the word ‘cream’ sounds fattening making this drink high calorie!??

  38. Jillian Harris

    June 24th, 2017 at 8:16 pm

    You could always swap out the coconut cream for coconut milk if you like! XO

  39. Leiana

    June 24th, 2017 at 7:18 pm

    What a great idea! I love coconut, love lemonade and combining them together with a little pineapple on the side sounds like bliss. Thank you for the recipe!

  40. Natalie

    June 23rd, 2017 at 3:26 pm

    Delicious! Good with no alcohol, but I think I’ll have the next glass with rum 🙂

  41. Jillian Harris

    June 24th, 2017 at 9:11 pm

    I like your style! LOL!!

  42. Leah Sturt

    June 24th, 2017 at 1:41 pm

    Lovely! Where is your lemon basket from?!

  43. Jillian Harris

    July 24th, 2017 at 9:06 am

    It’s from World Market!! http://rstyle.me/n/cqrnmtzb96 XOXO

  44. Michelle Smid

    June 24th, 2017 at 10:43 pm

    I made this today to bring to my besties for a BBQ. We added some coconut rum. Oh my goodness Jillian it was SO good! And with the coconut rum – dangerous! I think I have a new summer drink <3

  45. Jillian Harris

    June 25th, 2017 at 6:25 pm

    OMG YES!!! You’re making me drool over here!! XO

  46. Shannon

    August 9th, 2017 at 9:52 am

    We tried this drink with Malibu rum! it’s one of my favourites! Next time we make it we’re going to add ice and put it in a blender!

  47. Shannon

    August 9th, 2017 at 9:53 am

    We tried this drink with Malibu rum! it’s one of my favourites! Next time we make it we’re going to add ice and put it in a blender! Where did you buy your jug from?

  48. Jillian Harris

    OMG YUM!!! That sounds amazing!!

  49. Litls

    February 19th, 2018 at 7:39 pm

    I had this in Colombia South America! Delish

  50. Annie

    September 23rd, 2018 at 4:44 am

    How long will this stay fresh in the fridge? I would want to make a double batch as I don’t know what to do with the remaining creme and I love Coconut Lemonade. I spend too much money at my local coffee shop buying their version of the this. I am looking forward to saving some money.

  51. Lisa Cushman

    June 2nd, 2019 at 4:44 pm

    I blended the coconut cream forever and it never got smooth. What am I doing wrong?

  52. Michelle

    July 12th, 2019 at 10:53 am

    Can coconut milk be used. I am unable to find coconut cream ?

  53. Jillian Harris

    July 23rd, 2019 at 11:09 am

    Yes you can use coconut milk, it might just not be as thick and creamy! xo
