Rosy Coconut Detox Elixir


To start your day, or for a lift in your day, a refreshing coconut beverage is a quick and cleansing detox. Plus, with the addition of kefir—the most probiotic-rich food on the planet—you’ll also be supporting a healthy gut.


  • Mix it up a bit and substitute pineapple or mango for banana.
  • Coconut water is alkaline, so it helps eliminate toxins from your digestive tract.


2 cups (500 mL) coconut water

1 cup (250 mL) plain kefir

1 very ripe pear, cored and diced

1 small banana, peeled and sliced

3 ice cubes, or more if desired

Mint, lime slices, and toasted coconut, for garnish
