Coconut water is for cougars

coconut water, it sounds yummy…and occassionally, I see pics of celebs drinking it.  So, I’ve tried it. After trying and spitting out a few different brands (i.e. Zico, woooof)…I have found one that is delicious – and has been tested + approved by friends as well.

she was probably paid, no?

VitaCoco Coconut Water is the good stuff! However, I don’t like the plain coconut water – I prefer mine with PINEAPPLE. It makes it extra tropical. It’s sweet, but not too sweet.

that's Demi, not the best pic of our girl

I usually find these at Stop & Shop. ~$2.50 each 16 0z. box. I don’t buy a lot of them, because if I drank one a day it could be an expensive habit. But we like to keep a few in the fridge.

It claims to be more hydrating than water. It has less sugar than most fruit drinks, so it’s a good alternative if you’re looking from something sweet. Plus, it doesn’t have artificial sweeteners, so it’s also a good alternative for diet soda. And with only 60 calories a serving (2 per 16 oz. container), it’s not undoing any hard work at the gym!

Here is the whole nutrition label for you label-readers:

And I read these other ‘benefits’ that coconut water offers:

  • Electrolytes for keeping the body hydrated making it a preventive for dehydration and hyponatremia
  • Soothes an upset stomach
  • Delivers essential minerals for athletes
  • Naturally sugar free, fat free and cholesterol free
  • Caffeine free
  • Non carbonated
  • Good hangover cure

worth a try, right??? or, am I missing something?
