I have always loved coconut. I love it shredded and baked into things. I sprinkle a little on my yogurt or oatmeal. I also love it raw, straight from the seed that I cracked myself. I especially love drinking the mildly sweet, cloudy water. So I am beyond thrilled with the coconut water trend! Sure, there is some controversy over the supposed health benefits and electrolyte replacement. But I’ll take coconut water any day over Gatorade, Powerade or any other sports drink.
Here are my favorite brands rights now.
Naked Juice. Love the brand, love the packaging, love the water. Getting a little more difficult to find in stores.
Blue Monkey is delicious and frequently on sale at Whole Foods.
Man, Amy and Brian Coconut Juice just tastes the best. I love it with or without pulp and those cans get icy cold in the fridge.
Happy drinking! What’s your favorite coconut water?
