I can't believe it's June! I’ve been in my apartment for over a month now! I guess it’s time to hang up some art, right? I did finally order a rug and some chairs, so people can sit when they come over.

Let’s talk about this drink. This is like go-to summer drink city: coconut water (frozen into cubes), a few strawberries, and a few juiced limes. Literally, that is it. So, healthy, tasty, easy. The best. I don’t have ice cube trays so I used some popsicle molds to freeze my coconut water the night before, then just plopped them into my Vitamix along with some strawberries and fresh lime juice.

If you haven’t gotten on the coconut water train: do it! It’s so darn tasty, and super good for you. I’m 100 percent a fan. If I could drink 10 each day, I totally would.

2 cups coconut water, frozen into cubes
1/4 cup coconut water, not frozen
5 large strawberries, hulled (frozen or not)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Combine everything in your blender, and blend until smooth! You may need to poke it a bit to get it all blended – it will be pretty thick.
