I was VERY excited when I was contacted by Epicurex LLC asking if I would be willing to try their 100% Organic Coconut Water...
WHAT? Well, YES, of course I would!
I hadn't ever tried coconut water before, but in just reading the reviews of this wonderful product, I couldn't wait to try it!!!
There were comments that said it was like drinking from a coconut with a straw! Even those from countries where coconuts are raised! A few others said they were very apprehensive as they hadn't ever tasted a good coconut water, but said this was the REAL DEAL!!
I'D SAY THAT'S PRETTY AWESOME, HUH?
About Cocozia Coconut Water at Amazon : This product contains a natural abundance of potassium and magnesium, as well as other electrolytes. It is USDA Certified Organic, Kosher, it contains no GMOs and preservatives. COCOZIA is fat and cholesterol free. And the product itself is 72% pure juice! An 8 ozs. serving is only 40 calories!
I REALLY liked this light drink. It's smooth and has a very light coconut flavor.
And I love that it has electrolytes and is full of potassium too.
It's delicious and I drank it often, knowing it was good for me made it even more desirable. I believe this is a new 'habit' that is a healthy choice!
The containers are easy to drink from...add a straw...carry with you on the go.
Summer will be here soon, and we'll all be looking for something to cool us down. Why not have something healthy to grab? So I decided to make frozen popsicles with this product and was very pleased with the results.
I used fresh mango and pineapple....you could use all of either one, and canned would work as well. I just don't think anything can compare to fresh though.
TROPICAL YOGURT POPSICLES
(no sugar added)
1/2 c. fresh mango, diced
1/2 c. fresh pineapple, diced
(Or use 1 c. of one of those)
juice from 1 orange (or lime)
1 C. plain Greek yogurt
1 frozen banana, sliced
(I keep frozen pieces in the freezer just for these kinds of things)
1 c. coconut water (may add a little more)
1 tsp. rum or coconut extract, optional
3 Tb. honey
Add ingredients in order to blender. Blend until smooth. (I let it run about 45 seconds). Taste to see if you want it sweeter before pouring into popsicle molds. Freeze overnight before removing to enjoy.
Add what you'd like if you'd prefer making a smoothie...coconut flakes, oatmeal, vanilla protein powder, chia seeds..add ice if you want it thicker. It's fun to experiment cause it's all good!
