I was sent a package of Cocozia 100% Organic Coconut Water to review and write about. It had been awhile since I’d had coconut water, so I wasn’t sure if I would like it. While I didn’t like it plain, I found a yummy way to add it to a smoothie so I still got the benefits of it.
Andrew loved drinking it plain, though! He has been drinking one every morning and has really noticed a difference in how he feels during the day. I felt much more awake and alert all day after drinking my smoothie. I also noticed that it really kick started my metabolism and I was so hungry all day!
Coconut water is a natural source of electrolytes, so it’s a great alternative to sugar-filled sports drinks. Cocozia’s Coconut Water is organic and natural, with no added sugar and no preservatives.
I decided to try creating a smoothie with coconut water rather than fruit juice. I used frozen strawberries but you can add any frozen fruit (or vegetable!) you like. This refreshing smoothie was a great breakfast smoothie, and would also be good for before or after working out.
Here’s the recipe:
4 tbsp coconut water
1/2 cup frozen fruit (I used strawberries)
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp honey
1/4 cup oats
1. Combine ingredients in order listed in a blender.
2. Blend well.
