I’ve recently been on a coconut kick. I made a coconut cake for my dad last winter and I’ve been loving the flavor ever since. I use coconut oil in my baked goods and also use coconut flour to bake gluten free baked goods. So when I had the opportunity to try COCOZIA 100% Organic Coconut Water I jumped at the chance.
I’m big into helping myself be healthier by any means possible and that includes drinking more water. Especially water that isn’t dripping in calories and packed with sugar which is why COCOZIA held such an appeal for me. Also, this coconut water is kosher, USDA Organic Certified and Non-GMO project verified. There are NO added sugars and zero fat plus the only ingredient is organic coconut water.
While you currently can’t find COCOZIA coconut water in stores, it is available on Amazon in cases of 12, with each carton holding 11.1 oz. They come in a large box but each carton is really similar to a juice box and is served with a straw. They are perfect for packing in lunches or for throwing in my bag on the way to the gym.
Actually, this is a really great beverage to take to the gym because it COCOZIA contains potassium and magnesium, as well as other electrolytes. Electrolytes are directly involved with body hydration and muscle function. It’s so much better to get the electrolytes from a natural source like COCOZIA than from a sugary, synthetic sports drink alternative.
The taste is light and refreshing, though it does take some getting used too. There is no added sweetener so it’s the actual water that has come out of the coconut. There is a very mild flavor of coconut in the water. I first tried it warm and wasn’t a fan. Then I tried it ice cold out of the refrigerator and thought it was pretty good. My favorite way to enjoy it was in a fruit smoothie.
Overall it’s a great post-workout beverage or as an additive to fruit smoothies. The light taste makes it refreshing and it’s great for hydrating.
I was provided with an Amazon gift card to purchase 1 carton of Cocozia Coconut water in exchange for a review on Amazon and blog. All photos, opinions, and writing are my own.
