coconut.waterI have been hearing a lot about coconut water and how it is good for you for a long time now. It was not until this winter that I decided to try some. At first I just purchased whatever I saw on the shelf and assumed it was healthy because it was labelled “Coconut Water”, while the version of coconut water I was buying at first was very tasty it wasn’t as healthy as I though it was. If you want true coconut water with all of the nutrients you MUST look at the ingredients when buying coconut water and make sure it says 100% coconut water.

Coconut water is super hydrating and can be a great drink after a workout because it has so many electrolytes, a great alternative to a sugar packed Gatorade or Powerade. Coconut water is filled with many vitamins and nutrients and very high in Potassium. Coconut water can be found in the grocery store in the juice isle. I like to buy mine in the large 1 Litre size instead of individual cans or bottles, they can add up!

 

How to use:

  • Can be consumed alone with some ice cubes to cool it down
  • Mixed into a smoothie instead of orange juice or any other juice if you do not like the taste of coconut water
  • Pour into an ice tray and let it freeze overnight, suck on the coconut ice cubes on a hot summer day

    Coconut water contains electrolytes which help with hydration. It’s great stuff! Thanks for the post.
