Go Nuts — Coconuts!
Delicious new coconut drinks quench your thirst
Gisele Bündchen loves it after a good workout, Rihanna sips it after a night on stage, and Courteney Cox loves it so much she named her daughter after it. (OK, maybe that’s not why she named her daughter Coco.) But no matter what the reason, everyone is going nuts for coconut water!
The beverage has been touted as “the fluid of life,” and it’s pretty easy to see why. Coconut water is high in potassium, magnesium, and calcium, yet low in calories, fat, and sodium. The amazing water not only works to balance your body’s pH levels, but it also raises your metabolism, and replaces fluids you lose from sweating, just like a sports drink!
We won’t lie though, regular coconut water can be a bit of an acquired taste, sort of like Britney Spears’ addition to The X Factor. Luckily, some of our favorite brands have caught on to the magical little liquid, concocting some deliciously refreshing drinks just in time for the hottest season of the year!
