Back to reality for the Kellys...
We spent last week in Florida visiting family and it was amazing. No schedules, no freezing temperatures, just warm weather, sunshine and family. It was a vacation that we all really needed.
One day, we went out for lunch and I ordered a Coconut Water Lemonade at a restaurant we went to on the beach. I am not a huge fan of coconut but it sounded so refreshing (and healthy) so I decided to give it a try.
It was amazing! I knew I wanted to recreate it when I got back to NJ and share it with you guys. I added some ginger to mine (ginger is an amazing anti-inflammatory) and of course, chopped mint. This will be my favorite drink this summer, I just know it.

Why You Should Make This Coconut Water Ginger Lemonade
This delicious ginger lemonade is light, simple to make and super refreshing. Most importantly, it's loaded with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
This ginger lemonade is very low in calories too. At less than 70 calories per serving, go ahead and sip and enjoy.
With all of my health issues, I am always looking for foods and drinks to help reduce inflammation in my body. Ginger is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatories and I try to add it to just about everything.
Add whatever sweetener you'd like, I only made this twice so far, once with raw honey and the other with coconut nectar. They both were incredible, just remember if you use the raw honey it will no longer be vegan.
Use whatever sweetener you'd like! I bet stevia would also work well in this too if you are looking for a refreshing drink with no added sugar.
If you are planning on storing this in the refrigerator to drink over a few days, I would add the mint leaves right before serving so you aren't drinking limp, soggy mint leaves each time.
