When I miss beaches, palm trees, and vacation drinks, I turn to coolers like this Refreshing Green Citrus Cooler. I can almost feel the breeze on my face with the delicious flavors of this cooler! You won’t know what hits you when you taste this wave of vacation flavors!

Oranges, lemon, and lime: the citrus trifecta of this cooler is bursting with fresh, bright flavors and not only that! They fill you with delicious benefits that boost your levels of vitamin C and detox your body.

Coconut water adds even more tropical flavors to this cooler. It reminds me of the turquoise beaches in the Bahamas- the one I can only dream about right now. Another dreamy, beachy ingredient that is in season right now are the mangoes! They provide that perfect sweetness that only needs to be complimented with raw honey.

What are the ingredients for this refreshing Green Citrus Cooler?

Oranges: you can use Cara cara or a navel oranges for this recipe.
More citrus! Lemon and lime bring a refreshing citrus flavor.
Chia seeds provide omega-3, fiber, and protein. These seeds expand when in water, so don’t put in too much.
Honey is perfect to make this cooler sweet. I like to use raw honey with no sugar added.
Coconut water is a delicious source of hydration.
In my house, we eat mangoes regularly. They boosts immunity, may help to clear your skin, and aid in weight loss.
Cilantro is a great herb to add in for weight loss, detox, and fighting infections.
