Now that summer is officially here, it’s time to stay hydrated and what better way to do just that than with Vita Coco, a delicious tasting coconut water.
Vita Coco supplies some of the most important minerals to your body to maintain hydration, including potassium and magnesium, as well as vitamin C. (One serving of Vita Coco (11.1 fl oz) contains 740 mg of potassium, which is equal to more than two bananas!) Vita Coco is also just as impressive for what it doesn’t contain. It’s all-natural, fat free, cholesterol free and does not contain trans fat so you can drink easily without feeling guilty.
The company uses green (not traditional brown) coconuts for all beverages. Vita Coco waters come in a variety of flavors, including 100 percent pure coconut water, coconut water with peach and mango, coconut water with tangerine, coconut water with pineapple and coconut water with acai and pomegranate. Our favorite was the coconut water with pineapple. The light, flavorful water is not only healthful and hydrating but also energizing for that late afternoon pick me up.
Vita Coco water can be purchased directly from their site. A 12-pack case of water retails for $31. For more information, visit www.vitacoco.com.
