Oh...I Just Love Coconut Water

This is a new one for me.  Well new in that I have been drinking this for a couple of months and have become somewhat addicted.  I am not a soft drink (soda or pop in other countries) drinker, well I do on the odd occasion, really just as an addition to vodka, LOL.  I am not really a juice drinker either, I just love to drink water (boring I know).

Anyway I have heard about coconut water and it being some wonderful new fad and hadn't really paid much attention.  Coconut water is the clear fluid that comes from the inside of young green coconuts.  It doesn't have any fat and is very high in potassium.  It is also rich in electrolytes so it makes it a very hydrating drink.

I was at a local market a couple of months ago and they had a massive pile of Cocobella (www.purecocobella.com) Coconut Waters at the check out.  They had a few flavours, but what caught my eye was the Pink Guava.  YUM YUM YUM, I love Guava juice.  The only place I have ever had it was in Hawaii and it is so delicious.  So I picked up one little carton and took it home and popped it in the fridge.

There are three flavours available.  Pineapple, Pink Guava and Mango.  I actually forgot about it for a few days and opened the fridge one day and thought I would give that a try.  Oh I can not tell you how good it was.  I went right out and bought some more pink guava but also one each of the pineapple and mango.  I tried the pineapple a few days later and was not a massive fan of that, I won't be getting the Pineapple flavour again.  Last night I tried the Mango flavour and it was delicious.  So my favourite flavours are the Pink Guava and the Mango.

So I can highly recommend trying these but make sure they are cold.  They are often not kept in the fridge when you buy them.  I saw them at Coles supermarket (in Australia) the other day, but I get mine from a local market and am not sure of where they are available in other countries.  Here is their website, they may have suppliers listed.

I was given some coconut water after a race last week -- and I just couldn't bring myself to try it. Maybe I'll give it a second look! :)
