Are you tired of drinking coconut water always in the same way? Want to change things up but don’t know how? We got you. Coconut water is the best way to give your life a tropical twist. Not only is coconut water tasty and hydrating, it is also full of antioxidants and electrolytes. Check out these five creative ways to give a twist to coconut water:
Coffee with coconut water
Oh yes. It’s a thing. And it will rock your mornings. Coffee is a natural pick-me-up so imagine adding coconut water to it, which is packed with plenty of electrolytes – the end result is a double whammy of energy. Simply substitute coconut water for natural water and add the coffee. Start with a lower ratio of 1:4 of coffee to coconut water and adjust to your liking. You can also try other variants, such as a refreshing cold brew for these summer days.
Coconut Water Ice Lollies with fresh fruit
Refresh your day with a delicious lollie. Simply pour the coconut water into a pop mold and add sliced fruit (it can be strawberries, pineapple, blueberries, mango) and enjoy a delicious and nutritious snack.
Start your day fresh by whipping up a delicious (and nutritious) smoothie. Add your choice of fruit, protein (peanut butter or almond butter), and coconut water to a blender and you’ll have a delicious drink within minutes. The coconut water replaces yogurt, milk, or juice for a more nutritious and dairy-free beverage.
If you are looking to cut down on empty calories, coconut water is the answer. Not only is coconut water low calorie, but it is super hydrating and will thus ward off any hangovers that might come your way. Next time you go out, swap your sugar-laden mixers for coconut water. Simply add a splash of coconut water to your favorite cocktail and enjoy a delicious drink with fewer calories.
Blend an açaí packet with your choice of fruit and add a cup of coconut water. Not only are açaí bowls beyond delicious, but açaí and coconut water are two superfoods that will give you the boost you need to power through a rough day.
