      Great! I’m happy you feel that way. Make sure the coconut water you use is pure (Vita Coco and Taste Nirvana are good examples). Read the ingredients because some have added sugar and stuff in them. If you can get a fresh coconut, that’s even better. And you can create any mixture of simple ingredients you want (berries, matcha, non-dairy milks, chocolate, coffee, tea, other fruits and herbs, etc) to make it suit your taste or the occasion. Thanks for reading and commenting, Somali! 😁

        Oh yes! You have lots of coconut where you are in Mumbai! 😍👌 One last handy tip: You can put the frozen cubes in a blender and make sorbet! I hope you have a delicious time experimenting with different ingredients! 😊 🍒🍌🍓🍍
