Coconut and raspberry puparitas are on the menu today for Cinco de Mayo! What dog wouldn’t want to celebrate with a fancy, homemade drink? I’ve got the recipe, and I tell you, it is mighty tasty! At our house, I’m kind of queen of the party drinks. I have a yellow snow drink if you think that would be more your thing.
What do you need for these tasty puparitas?
- coconut shavings
- coconut water ice cubes
- a blender
- margarita glasses
We didn’t have coconut water, so Mom had me blend coconut shavings with water, and then pour into an ice cube tray and freeze them. It was super easy to do. Once you have solid ice cubes you can blend up your puparitas. I don’t formally measure, just guess. In the blender, I added some regular water, lots of the coconut water ice cubes, and a paw full or so of raspberries. Blend adding more water if needed until the puparitas are the desired consistency.
Once they were blended, the frozen coconut raspberry puparitas were ready to serve. I used my rubber spatula so I could get every drop out of the blender. Madison is so fussy, she had no interest in even trying my creation. Luckily, Olivia was up for it so I didn’t have to drink alone.
We took our puparitas out on the deck to give them a try. They smell heavenly, and the taste is pretty good too!
Olivia was really into her puparita. She has never had one before, but I think she is in love now. Normally she is such a chow hound, but she was quite dainty with her frozen drink.
Can you tell from this photo that mine tasted amazing? I wanted to just gulp it all down at once.
It’s amazing how wonderful such a simple drink can actually taste. I must suggest that you do drink these in moderation. As you can see, Olivia may have over done it a bit with hers!
Feliz Cinco de Mayo to all!
