    • 3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
    • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
    • 2 Tbsp. (or more) agave nectar or 1 Tbsp. honey or pure maple syrup
    • 2–3 cups coconut water or water


    1. Blend fruit, lime juice, salt, agave, 2 cups coconut water, and 2 cups ice in a blender on high, adding more coconut water as needed, until very smooth. Taste slushy and add more agave if desired. Divide among glasses.
