You can’t go wrong with a tall glass of lemonade. Its one way to get some vitamin C in your body (and with the flu running around we all need some vitamin C) plus coconut water is full of potassium which can help offset your sodium intake (yes we see you adding extra salt to your food!). A glass of this lemonade should keep you hydrated and healthy!
4 cups coconut water
5 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 lime juice, (optional)
