Coconut water?

Sort of a spin off of the milk post....Anyone drink Coconut water? I see it everywhere now and haven't had it.

What gives? Is it yummy? Is it healthy?

I am not a huge coconut fan, unless combined with dark chocolate! Not a Pina Colada fan, so maybe I wouldn't like it. But is comes in flavors too.

Re: Coconut water?

  • I had this straight from the coconut when I was there a few years back, and it was so yummy!  It is supposed to be really good for your skin.  I tried some of the can ones when I got back, and they just did not taste the same.  I haven't tried/looked for it in awhile, so not sure what is available now.

  • it is good for you, but it does have calories. It has some essential nutrients not in plain water (potassium, magnesium, calcium and some amino acids) It also has electrolytes which is why a lot of athletes drink it as a natural alternative to sports drinks.

  • I would drink it during/after long runs sometimes. I'm not a huge coconut fan but I thought it was pretty good. I would also put it in smoothies

  • I drink it once or twice a week... Like a healthier, more natural gatorade.

  • Hm, maybe I will try some! Thanks for your input girls!
  • It is definitely healthy for you.  I've tried Zico and some others, there are lots of flavors to choose from.  I believe it has a lot of fiber in it, I drank it while I was pregnant a lot because I wanted to stay hydrated well, and it helps you 'go'.. :)
