Agua de Coco

Nature’s wonder drink!

I was not always a fan of the coconut water, but like all things in life I’ll keep trying them if I think I should or it would be beneficial (it took me about 23 years to finally find my appreciation for olives and now I loooove them!)
Now why is Coconut Water so great? It is full of antioxidants, has way more potassium than bananas (15 times more) and is great at replenishing fluids. There are also rumors that it helps cure hangovers?!?! 🙂 Now let’s be real – I’m not running marathons but I just know that I like it plain, with fruit, cold and often.
Potassium has also been shown to help regulate body fluid levels and reduce levels of stress hormone  (research from the British Journal of Nutrition)

My favorites:
Plain Coconut: O.N.E.
Coconut with Pineapple: Vita Coco (hello Pina colada!)
Give these a try, or maybe a few tries, they will not disappoint!
