Review for Chocolate Coconut Water & Chocolate Coconut Chia Smoothie

This is a sponsored post by Epicurex LLC for this delicious
Cocoazia Chocolate Coconut water.  All opinions are
totally mine. 


Again, I was thrilled to be contacted to try Cocoazia's CHOCOLATE Coconut water!  I had never even SEEN such a product. I mean...CHOCOLATE??

I rushed into the house, tore open the box and opened a container and drank up (or down?)  It tastes much like chocolate milk, with a mild coconut flavor, and is thinner than milk of course. 

And of course, I do prefer it cold...once I let it chill.  *-* 

I've shared it with others and they are impressed as well. 

It's a healthy 'chocolate milk' drink. I've read reviews when children preferred this Cocoazia Chocolate Coconut water to their regular routine of chocolate milk!  So this is super great for kids who have a dairy allergy...


It's awesome for after workouts too as it has electrolytes and vitamins.

From their website:
•Contains a natural abundance of potassium and magnesium, as well as other electrolytes.
•USDA Organic Certified, Natural Chocolate Coconut Water.
•NON GMO Pending, Gluten Free, Vegan Chocolate Coconut Water.
•Kosher Chocolate Coconut Water, No Dairy.


Since I'm a real smoothie lover, I decided to first try a healthy smoothie...

The only thing 'hard' about this smoothie is you want to think ahead so the chia seeds can soak a few minutes before you're ready to blend...

This is so good...and so good for you!

Enjoy!!

CHOCOLATE COCONUT CHIA SMOOTHIE

(I keep slices in the freezer ready for recipes like this)

(cashew or almond butter would be great too)
1 Tb. flax seed meal
1 - 2 Tb. honey 

Add chocolate coconut water and chia seeds to blender; allow to rest for 5 - 10 minutes. 

Add remaining ingredients and blend, about 45 seconds or so.  Add more ice or frozen bananas to suit your thickness desires.
