It’s so easy to beautify your drinks with these stunning homemade coconut water ice spheres!
They make any cold drink stand out, keep it cold and add a hint of fresh-sweetness to it, depending on what you put inside.
These little cuties are great for parties, on a hot summer day, when having guests over or to spoil yourself.
All you need is an ice sphere mold, coconut water, fruit and edible flowers. Beauty is in the details!
Coconut water is packed with health benefits. It is high in electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus. Electrolytes support healthy functioning of cells, muscles, the brain and nerves.
Coconut water helps the body detoxify and stimulates cell regeneration. It also aids with digestion, nutrient absorption, has anti-aging properties and is good for the heart.
Ice spheres from fresh coconut water
Wash and cut the fruit in small pieces and put it in the mold.
Pour the coconut water carefully up until the border of the mold and cover with the top part. This will push the remaining coconut water out through the little holes, so do this above a big bowl to catch the coconut water.
I like to use pure coconut water, but if you want to get creative, add some freshly squeezed juice such as lime or pineapple juice to compliment your drink.
If you use things such as little flowers which don’t weight much, keep in mind that they will move around when you pour the liquid. The trick is to pour the water gradually to keep everything in place.
Freeze the coconut water ice spheres overnight and pop them out of the mold right before you serve the drinks.
The list of ingredients and combinations is endless: bright colors and interesting textures make for some of the most gorgeous ice spheres.
These are some of my favorite fillings for ice spheres:
