Coconut-Lime Cooler

When in the Caribbean, instead of seasonal green salads, pesto chicken sandwiches, and green beans with cured shallots, we eat Citrus-Sugared Dutch Babies and drink these Coconut-Lime Coolers.

It’s really nice in the Caribbean — unfortunately, going there and cooking there is all just a dream.


  • Ice
  • 2 cups coconut rum
  • 3 scoops lime sherbet
  • ¾ cup fresh lime juice, plus lime slices and zest for garnish
  • ¾ cup coconut water


Fill blender pitcher over halfway with ice and add the rest of the ingredients. Blend until smooth.

Pour the drink into festive glasses and garnish with a slice of lime and some zest.

Coconut Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Coconut Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
