Jillian Harris Coconut Lemonade Recipe

Coconut Lemonade

Okay, you guys!!! Today I FINALLY get to share one of my most FAVOURITE summer drink recipes with you!! It’s my own spin on Lemonade and I can’t BELIEVE I haven’t been making this my entire LIFE. Such a summery tropical twist on your average lemonade. Every time I drink it I can just picture myself … toes in the water … ass in the sand, not a worry in the world, a coconut lemonade in my hand … life is good today. Life is good today… you get the drift! It’s a basically an oasis in a glass!

The beauty about this recipe is it tastes amazing as a Mocktail BUT if you’re planning on getting a little silly poolside you can add some vodka to it as well to shake things up a bit!! You know that’s what I’ll be doing this summer!! Because as they say … no great story ever started with a salad! LOL!!

Ok, let’s get to the goods!!

Jillian Harris Coconut Lemonade Recipe

Coconut Lemonade Ingredients (makes one pitcher):

  • 6 organic squeezed lemons
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup
  • 1/2 can of coconut cream
  • 4 cups of Water

Simple Syrup Ingredients:

  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar (or any sugar you would like to use!)
  • 1 cup water

Method:

1. Start by zesting one lemon, set aside.

2. Squeeze all lemon juice into your desired pitcher.

3. Combine lemon zest, 1 cup cane sugar and 1 cup of water to a small pot for the simple syrup. Bring to boil then simmer until mixture starts to thicken. Turn heat off and let sit to thicken further.

4. Pour one full can of coconut cream into a blender and blend until smooth.

5. Stir in 1/2 cup of simple syrup mixture to your lemon juice in your pitcher.

6. Add 1/2 of the blended coconut cream to the lemon juice and simple syrup in your pitcher. Stir until smooth.

7. Add up to four cups of water to your pitcher but make sure to taste after every cup and stop adding water when your taste buds are happy as some people prefer sweet lemonade and other’s don’t!

8. Fill glasses with fresh ice fill with coconut lemonade. Garnish with lemon or pineapple slices and ENJOY!!!

    Sounds AMAZING!!! ??Can’t wait to try this!

  2. Stacy says:

    This looks absolutely amazing, Jill! Added to my weekend to-do list 🙂

  3. Julia says:

    Do you this would work with limes? I have a pile of limes to use up!!

    • Jillian Harris says:

      I haven’t tried it with limes yet but I think it would be delish!! If you try it, let me know how it turns out!! XOXO

    • Daisy says:

      I just made it with limes.. I would add one less lime or more coconut cream. It was delicious!

  4. Jessica says:

    Mmmmmm sounds so delicious!!

  5. Karen says:

    Yum! The ingredients list says 1/2 a can but in the instructions it says pour the whole can. Which do you prefer? Excited to try this!

  6. Elaine kaska says:

    Wow sounds yummy I will try this recipe for sure thank you sweetie

  7. Nancy says:

    I’ve never heard of coconut lemonade before until now. This is practically combining the best out of both worlds! Thanks for sharing :)!

  8. Renée says:

    What a clever pairing! As a tip, I decided to use liter mason jars instead of a pitcher. I put half the lemon juice in each jar along with, a quarter of the coconut cream, quarter cup of the simple syrup, then filled the rest with water. Coconut lemonade on the go! Thank you for the great recipe ?

  9. Michelle says:

    This is sooo delicious! Mine separated in the fridge though, normal? Any tips?

  10. Andrea says:

    I am so excited to try this – going to make a pitcher of it for the morning of my wedding <3

  11. Kamaldeep says:

    Wow this looks amazing! Really wish we had trader Joe’s here in Canada!

  12. Sandy says:

    Where is this top from?!

  13. megan says:

    OK!

    I have to say, this is one of my favourite blog posts! I love the content (obviously) and especially love the layout of the photos in a step by step process, it makes reading them so much more enjoyable when you can visually follow along! Not just ingredients and then final product, and I LOVED seeing YOU make everything!

    And yes, legit off to buy lemons!

  14. Jackie says:

    Sounds like the perfect drink for this mommy to be this summer. Thank you!!

  15. Marnie says:

    Love your blog! I can hardly wait to try your coconut lemonade!!

  16. Leanne says:

    Yummm, I’m going to totally try this as I’ve got a dwarf Lemon tree full of ripe lemons. Yum. ?

  17. nikki says:

    I LOVE coconut lemonade! I can’t get this recipe quite right though. I have massive meyer lemons, bigger than tennis balls, and they give out a ton of juice. I’m not quite sure how many of them translate into 6 lemons. Can you tell me what the ratio of lemon juice to coconut should be?

    • Jillian Harris says:

      It TOTALLY depends on your taste buds!! If you like your lemonade more tart then use more lemons, if not, cut back on the amount! I would suggest juicing 3 of them and see how it tastes and adjust from there! XOXO

  18. Karisss says:

    This was amazing!

    • Cheryl says:

      This drink sounds wonderful and something I would love, but the word ‘cream’ sounds fattening making this drink high calorie!??

    • Leiana says:

      What a great idea! I love coconut, love lemonade and combining them together with a little pineapple on the side sounds like bliss. Thank you for the recipe!

  19. Natalie says:

    Delicious! Good with no alcohol, but I think I’ll have the next glass with rum 🙂

  20. Leah Sturt says:

    Lovely! Where is your lemon basket from?!

  21. Michelle Smid says:

    I made this today to bring to my besties for a BBQ. We added some coconut rum. Oh my goodness Jillian it was SO good! And with the coconut rum – dangerous! I think I have a new summer drink <3

  22. Litls says:

    I had this in Colombia South America! Delish

  23. Annie says:

    How long will this stay fresh in the fridge? I would want to make a double batch as I don’t know what to do with the remaining creme and I love Coconut Lemonade. I spend too much money at my local coffee shop buying their version of the this. I am looking forward to saving some money.

  24. Phyllis says:

    I love the jug, do you know where it is from

  25. Lisa Cushman says:

    I blended the coconut cream forever and it never got smooth. What am I doing wrong?

  26. Michelle says:

    Can coconut milk be used. I am unable to find coconut cream ?

  27. Maddir says:

    I’ve had this on my mind to make forever! I finally had a bunch of extra lemons, so I juiced them all up, made the simple syrup, then added coconut milk instead of cream… and it curdled instantly! Has anyone else had this happen? 😔
