Everyone is always talking about the benefits of using coconut oil ‘topically’ … in your hair and on your skin. But I recently started ingesting it, and I have to say I’ll never put it on top of my body again. I discovered ‘electrolyte lemonade’ during a recent sauna session. The ingredients are so simple, that I decided to try it at home.
2 tablespoons of organic coconut oil
Juice of 1 meyer lemon
2 tablespoons of honey
1/2 cup of filtered water
I put everything in a blender, starting with the coconut oil. Mine was solid (92 degree melting point), so I had to soften it a bit before adding the rest of the ingredients. It made enough for an 8 ounce drink, and it was delicious! It tastes like a lemon/coconut smoothie. I’ve been using it as a recovery drink post sauna or workout, and it’s been working out like a charm!
