I have been searching for an alternative liquid to use in my morning smoothie for months, buying and testing everything from coconut water to nut milks. Adding water just didn’t cut it; it made my smoothie watery tasting. Juices add so much sugar and calories that I wasn’t thrilled with those, either. I tried nut milks, but they would mask the taste of the fruit, so that didn’t work. And then I discovered coconut water. Yes, there are many brands of coconut water on the market today, but I found Coco Joy to be the best tasting of the many that I tested.
There are so many health benefits of drinking coconut water. Some athletes swear by it for hydration. It has fewer calories, less sodium, less sugar, and more potassium than a sports drink. It contains easily digested carbohydrates in the form of natural sugar and electrolytes. CoCo Joy has a delightful sweet, nutty flavor and has added so much flavor to my morning smoothie that I will never go back to using sugary juices ever again.
