The ingredients; 100% raw organic coconut nectar. That is it!
Raw, 100% organic, Low Glycemic (GI of 35), Gluten-free, Dairy-Free, GMO-Free, Vegan.
It is naturally sweet like agave nectar, but healthier. Having friends that are diabetic, this product really intrigues me. Not all Coconut Nectar is the same. I encourage you to check Coconut Secret products. I will be posting more recipes on here using their product. But to get my feet wet with the product I first decided to use it in a fruit punch. Coconut and Citrus... Perfect! After all, my citrus trees are going crazy! So I picked Lemons, Limes and Oranges.

1/2 cup Coconut Nectar
Juice your fruit. Add the Coconut Nectar and stir until fully dissolved. Measure your liquid and add equal parts Water. Stir and serve. For an adult drink you can change the Water to Vodka.
