A day on the beach is always a day well-spent for me.
There’s just something about the smell of the ocean breeze, sandy feet, salty windswept hair and the natural rays from the sun that rejuvenates your entire being.
And when I’m on the beach, I never miss out on having coconut water – the perfect way to cool yourself down on a hot summer day!
Since fresh coconuts are not always available, Vita Coco is my next preferred option for a refreshing pick-me-up.
Vita Coco is natural, never-ever-from-concentrate coconut water.
Stacked with naturally occurring electrolytes (and more potassium than a banana), Vita Coco is fat free, cholesterol free, and gluten free, so you get all the goodness without the guilt. Despite coconut water’s growing popularity, Vita Coco’s dedication to providing consumers with authentic taste and naturally-occurring nutrients remains the same today as when the brand was founded in 2004.
All Vita Coco beverages are made using only fresh coconut water, unlike many other brands that sell coconut water from concentrate, which can have a significant impact on flavour.
Some awesome perks about Vita Coco:
- All Natural
- Five Essential Electrolytes (More electrolytes than 15 Sports Drinks) – Potassium , Magnesium, Sodium, Phosphorous, Calcium
- More potassium than a Banana
- Zero Fat, Zero Cholesterol
- Low in Calories
It feels pretty great knowing that the coconut water I enjoy drinking so much has all these awesome health benefits!
I like how convenient it is for me to have delicious coconut water whenever I want now – on the go, in the car, at home, at the beach, anywhere really. I love fresh coconuts the most – but sometimes they just aren’t an option. You can’t bring a fresh coconut anywhere you want, and even if you could.. you’d also have to bring along a chopper to hack the coconut open before you could enjoy it, that’s when Vita Coco comes in to save the day!
Apart from having this drink straight from the packaging, you can also whip up a fruit smoothie with a few simple ingredients! Here’s sharing my own personal favorite, Mango Coconut Smoothie!
Ingredients (serves 2):
- 330ml Vita Coco (1 packet)
- 2 medium – large ripe mangoes
- juice of 1 lime
Toss everything into a blender for 10 seconds on high speed, and you’ll end up with…
An awesome tropical smoothie that was almost effortless to make!
Mangoes and coconut = my kinda heaven. You can replace the mangoes with your favorite fruit – for example, bananas, blueberries and strawberries would be other great alternatives! Change up your choice of fruit and you could enjoy a different homemade smoothie every day of the week. I’m not a fan of milky fruit smoothies (those that use ice cream, yogurt or milk) so this coconut water concoction works well for me. I like how it’s creamy and smooth without being too rich.
Fun fact: Did you know that Madonna, Matthew McConaughey and Demi Moore liked coconut water so much they invested in the Vita Coco brand in February 2010, putting a spotlight on an emerging beverage trend that has since grown into a billion dollar category, worldwide?
Originally introduced in New York City, Vita Coco is now sold in 30 countries across the globe, including the UK, most of Europe, Japan and China.
Good things are made even better by sharing them with someone you love.
Vita Coco can now be found on sunny shores of Singapore as the ultimate natural hydrator after any physical exercise, after a long day of studies and especially under the heat and even haze.
