How to Make Homemade Coconut Water for Summer

It’s hard to imagine a drink more satisfying than a cool, crisp glass of water on a hot summer day. But what if this were the start of something even better? It can be! Filtered water is the ideal base for homemade coconut water--something many people love to drink, especially during the summer months

Packaged coconut water: popular, but polluting

Over the past several years, coconut water has become a hugely popular drink due to its thirst-quenching and electrolyte-boosting capability. In fact, coconut water sales are expected to exceed $2 billion in the next five years. Sadly, that means there will be millions of disposable bottles going into landfills and waterways. (Not to mention the hit to one’s wallet.)

Two ingredients

Another downside to packaged coconut water is that sometimes it contains additives. With homemade coconut water, the recipe has just two ingredients: coconut and water. Sure, people can add a little honey or sea salt to taste. But for simple, delicious coconut water, two ingredients are all that are needed. Here’s how it works:

How to make your own coconut water


  • 1 coconut
  • 2 cups filtered water


  • Skewer
  • Hammer (or mallet)
  • Pocket knife
  • Blender or Vitamix


Crack open the coconut. Then using a tool, such as a pocket knife, peel away the brown, fibrous coconut casing. Once the casing is removed, the remaining white part is called the coconut meat. Cut the coconut meat into two inch pieces. Cut enough to measure approximately a half cup.

Place the coconut meat into the blender or Vitamix container, add the filtered water, and blend. Voila, you’ve made your own coconut water! Note: If you like stronger flavored water, just add more coconut meat to the mix. Also, if you enjoy learning by video, this gentleman has mastered the art of making homemade coconut water.

When water composes half of the ingredients in a recipe, it should only be clean, clear water. The Coway Aquamega 100 triple-filtration system reduces water contaminants by up to 99.9%. Now with homemade coconut water–or any drink made from Coway Aquamega 100 filtered water–you’re starting with the purest ingredient available.

1Coway air purifiers have been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing.They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2022 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum airflow speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.

It is not a demonstration result in the actual use space. Not all odors and gases may be supported. → Tested with Coway Airmega 150, 160, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 400, 400S

5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
