Believe me, it’s well-deserved
Vitamin water, step aside, you are so uncool now.
Enter coconut milk. It has electrolytes, low calories in comparison to dairy milk and tastes like a vacation–well, the subtle flavors make you want to go on vacation.
Since I am obsessed with trendy, health products, I decided to give it a try.
I purchased O.N.E. unsweetened coconut water for $2.50 at Kroger. If unsweetened isn’t your thing, they also have sweetened varieties, such as guava, pink mango and pineapple.
It comes in a decent sized container for the low price, measuring at 16.9 fluid ounces.
Be mindful of the fact that It is unsweetened. If you need sugar in beverages, then I would not recommend this particular coconut water.
Otherwise, it tastes like a coconut, freshly cracked open. Barely sweet, light, creamy texture and I am in agreement with the top of the package, which states: “Super refreshing.”
The down low on nutrition
I have graciously provided the nutrition label for readers, so take a gander.
- 45 calories per eight-fluid-ounce serving (there are two servings.)
- Zero grams of fat. Yep, that’s right, it is super healthy.
- two-percent sodium
- 10 grams of carbohydrates
- 8 grams of sugar, unsweetened variety
If you are active…
Finally, take a look at potassium content. I know many of your are not interested in this, but since I am a bike commuter, I am always in search of cures to de cramp nerves in my leg muscles.
This coconut water is my savior. It clocks in at 12 percent of your daily value per serving, which is very high in comparison to most food or beverages. Not everyone has access to fresh oranges or bananas, so this coconut water is godsend in my opinion.
There you have it folks. Start drinking coconut water already! it is so healthy. I urge you to keep an open mind & it may take some time, but soon you will be hooked on this new super-water.
Peace, love and coconuts,
