Pitta Dosha Cooling Coconut Limeade

Fresh coconut limeade is doubly cooling. Harry Nilsson's song, Put the Lime in the Coconut, says it just right--"You put the lime in the coconut, you drink them both together, put the lime in the coconut, then you'll feel better. Put the lime in the coconut, and drink them both up..."

One cannot ask for a tastier way to cool off Pitta. Unlike other citrus which is considered heating and therefore aggravating to Pitta, lime has a prabhava, a magical quality of colling. When we add the lime to the coconut and drink them both up, we are cooling off Pitta dosha. Grab your favorite glass, a comfy lawn chair in the shade and enjoy.

"Food as medicine is a tasty and effective way to cool off Pitta dosha. "-Veena


  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (more if you need it sweeter)

  • 4 limes, quartered

  • 1/2-3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 4 cups coconut water


  • Combine water and coconut sugar and stir until sugar dissolves. You can put it on a little heat to help the sugar melt.

  • Add the limes to the water and coconut sugar.

  • In a large pitcher, add the cooled lime coconut sugar mixture, fresh squeezed lime juice, and coconut water. Stir to combine.

  • Serve at room temperature.

"I was dreading and anticipating hating a weeklong outside summer event. I’ve always hated summer. Hate being in the heat. Hate being in the sun. I am SO surprised! I enjoyed being there, being outside. I tolerated the high heat well and enjoyed the whole week. I was and am in a good mood. I was not affected by the heat and sun. And, for the first time in 46 years, I didn’t get sunburnt—I tanned!" -- A.D. Minnesota


“I have suffered from chronic headaches and migraines for as long as I can remember. I had talked to multiple PCPs and specialists about these issues, had been prescribed a variety of medications that never really fixed the issue.

Veena promptly put together a plan of action. Right away I noticed a significant decrease in the number of headaches I was getting, and when I did get them, they were much less severe than they had been in the past.

This is certainly the headache treatment plan that I have seen the biggest benefit from, and I plan to continue my new regimen moving forward.

I am very thankful for Veena's knowledge and advice and would not hesitate to recommend her services to friends and family alike.” -Adrienne Sobering, Albuquerque, New Mexico


“I was inflamed. I had trouble keeping weight on, I was diagnosed with incurable ulcerative proctitus, my energy was very low, and I was taking medications daily for a skin condition, and I had severe migraines.

Following Veena’s guidance, all of these conditions have been nearly eliminated! The incurable ulcerative proctitus was given a Mayo Clinic Score of 0, normal or inactive disease.

I’m very grateful to Veena for the wonderful results and the healthier quality of life we have attained together. Without reservation, I highly recommend Veena at Saumya Ayurveda.”

---Chris Schirber, Yoga Teacher, Minnesota
