I’m a big fan of fresh coconut water. It’s a fantastic way to rehydrate after a workout, a long walk in the sun, or even after an illness. But there’s so much more you can do than simply drink it plain. I get asked a lot, “What can I mix with coconut water?“. My answer? All sorts of things! But I’m going to share one of my absolute favorites with you in this article. Check it out and give it a try for yourself!

The Juice: The Beauty of Blue

Makes 32 fl oz

What can I mix with coconut water? Blue spirulina is a tasty, nutritious, and downright beautiful option!

Ingredients

2 Mature Coconuts – Water & Flesh

2 C Water

2-4 TBSP Blue Spirulina Powder

Directions

Crack open the coconuts, being sure to capture the water.

Pour the captured coconut water through a sieve or cheesecloth to remove any shell fragments.

Scrape out the coconut meat, removing any attached shell.

Blend coconut meat, coconut water, and regular water in a blender until smooth

Run the ingredients through your juicer and enjoy!!!

The Details: Why Blue Spirulina?

Spirulina, known as Blue-Green Algae, is one of the Earth’s oldest life forms. Which is cool and all, but why am I using it in this recipe? Besides giving coconut milk a super blue hue, it adds a wealth of health benefits.

Considered a superfood, a tablespoon of spirulina provides 4 g of protein and a significant amount of multiple key micronutrients: Copper, Riboflavin, Thiamin, Iron, Niacin, Magnesium, Potassium, and Manganese.

It acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, is known to help lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides while increasing HDL cholesterol, may help fight cancer (oral in particular), can reduce blood pressure, combat anemia, improve muscle performance, and even reduce blood sugar levels. Because it’s so powerful it has some contraindications, as do many things, so be sure to check those out before you use it.

You can score spirulina in its original green form or in its extracted form, a process that concentrates the amount of phycocyanin resulting in the intense blue color. I prefer using the blue spirulina for its color and neutral flavor, but feel free to experiment for yourself!
