It’s a sweltering, sweaty day, you’re lusting for some cool drink relief, you have 5 minutes to dash into Spar…. aaaand… stumped.
Water? Too boring. Flavoured water? Too full of artificial crap (third nipple alert…). Fizzy drink? Too sugary? Fruit Juice? Makes me more thirsty. Flavoured milk? Maybe if I was 3. Iced coffee/tea? See the third nipple, sugary section. Appletizer? Fourth time this week…
Enter Coconut Water (Eish, but good luck finding it in Spar), and long-awaited healthy refreshment that you can’t get out of a tap…
Why do I like it?
- Doesn’t taste like coconut (not a fan)
- It’s not water
- Low calorie
- More potassium than four bananas (four!)
- Natural energy boost
- Rich in dietary fibre, enzymes, vitamin C, minerals and amino acids.
Eat your heart out, Appletizer.
Did you Know?
During the Pacific War, coconut water was used in IVs and plasma transfusions. This stuff saves lives. Turns out that the contents of natural coconut water are identical to that of human plasma, making it a kind of “universal donor”! It is still used in countries that have limited access to medical assistance.
