Natural coconut water is so simple and so refreshing. Fill up a sports flask with coconut water and half water for pre or post workout drink, also a great drink for the summer garden. Its Autumn here just now though and I’m drinking my coconuts indoors before I move onto hot cacao drinks mmmm…
Coconut water is a great natural electrolyte, and it contains high amounts of potassium. It is also lower in carbohydrates — It only contains about 4.5% carbohydrates, whereas typical sports drinks can contain a 6%-8% carbohydrate concentration. (Dr. Axe)
My son drank two of these after school the other day, they are expensive fresh and I cant keep up with that demand ha ha! You can buy a good high quality coconut water from the supermarket but most of them are heat processed and I try to avoid pasturised drinks where possible, simply because pasturisation in most cases = high heat which in turn destroys some of the nutrition (not all of the nutrition though), they are still beneficial to your health in some aspects though. Coconuts are not always easy to obtain fresh though and if I cant get them fresh the pasturised stuff is second best.
Also a great addition to smoothies and deserts, some raw desserts use coconut water in the blending processes.
Here are some additional facts in the links below.
If you are looking to purchase coconuts in bulk, which is possible via mail, then you can purchase them in a 6 or 12 pack by clicking on the image below. If your not using many though I would purchase a 6, I have purchased a 36!! before and they all went off before i got through half of them.
