Strawberry, Mint and Coconut Frappe
4 cups fresh strawberries chopped
1 cup coconut water
1/4 cup mint simple syrup (recipe below)
twist of lime
additional lime & mint for serving (optional)
Mint Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1/2 cup organic raw sugar or coconut sugar (coconut sugar will make a slightly muddier drink)
Generous handful mint (about 20 leaves
Add strawberries, coconut water and simple syrup to a high-speed blender and process until very smooth and frothy, about 30 seconds. Pour over ice with a generous twist of lime and a sprig of mint.
Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan and heat to a simmer, stirring or swirling until sugar is dissolved. Add mint, pressing down to ensure leaves are submerged in syrup. Remove from heat, cover, and steep for 15 mins. Strain out mint leaves before using syrup.
