Vita Coco Coconut Water
Reviewed by David Savage
I recently had the opportunity to sample flavoured coconut water by Vita Coco. Supplied in a 330ml carton they are available in a variety of flavours.
They are packed with naturally occurring electrolytes with 20 more times the potassium of the leading sports drinks, contains more potassium than 2 bananas, is 100% natural, hydrates and makes you feel good. They are fat-free and cholesterol-free.
I tried five different flavours from the pure coconut water to the coconut water flavoured with different fruits:
100% Pure Coconut Water
Coconut Water with Passion Fruit
Coconut Water with Peach & Mango
Coconut Water with Acai & Pomegranate
Coconut Water with Pineapple
I found them to be very refreshing and certainly quenched my thirst with my favourite being the pineapple flavoured one. As they are made from 100% ingredients they are much better and healthier for you.
These would be great for drinking after sporting activities or as an addition to any child’s lunchbox. Vita Coco is a much healthier alternative to fizzy soft drinks and very tasty. I will be looking out for them in my local supermarket.
At about £3.49 per litre/£1.49 per 330ml/£2.49 per 500ml carton they are slightly more expensive than some other drinks but are but much better for your health, tastier and certainly refreshing. Can be found at good supermarkets and health food stores.
I would recommend.
