Simple Coconut Cold Brew
I am one of those people who drinks iced coffee all year long.
Don’t get me wrong – I do love a hand warming mug of hot coffee on a cold winter morning (like our Toasty Graham Coffee Latte with Cinnamon Whip).
Still – even in cooler months, when I wear a jacket on my morning run and still wear socks for warmth?
And all summer long we enjoy this super simple cold brew. Coconut watered cold brew. It literally takes two minutes to prepare, and is ready for you the next morning. All done.

Pure coconut water with nothing added has just 60 calories per cup. That one cup serving also has 10% of our daily Vitamin C and is a good source of several minerals:
