Vita Coco Coconut Water Giveaway

I recently received a case of Vita Coco coconut water.

I love coconut water and could drink it every day. If you’ve never had coconut water, it’s not nearly as strongly or intensely flavored as coconut milk.

Think water, that’s slightly sweet, with just a hint of coconut flavor so even if you don’t “love” coconut (we need to work on that though) you will probably still enjoy coconut water.

It’s so refreshing and has many benefits.

In this post, I recounted some of the many benefits and little factoids about coconut water.

For instance, coconut water is identical to human blood plasma and is a universal donor.

In the Pacific War in the 1940s they used coconut water as blood plasma infusions for the wounded soldiers when human blood plasma was in short supply. Food trivia at its finest.

These individually portioned cartons are perfect for me and come in handy to toss in my purse or into lunches.

Some of my favorite ways to use coconut water other than just drinking it include:

Coconut Water Sports Drink (vegan, GF) –  aka, Natural homemade Gatorade because of all the wonderful electrolytes and rebalancing properties of coconut water.

and

Coconut Milk Kefir (vegan, GF) A three ingredient countertop recipe that uses coconut water, coconut milk, and a starter. You don’t have to “do” anything other than put the three ingredients in a bowl on your countertop and wait for fermented fun times to ensue.

Coconut Water Champagne Fruit Punch – Coconut water is great for rebalancing the body and replenishing electrolytes because it’s high in potassium so after heavy exercise, heavy exertion, or heavy drinking, coconut water is fabulous.

Drinking coconut water with your wine or champagne is what I like to think of as good preventative medicine.

If you’re a coconut fan in general, here are all my coconut oil, coconut water, coconut recipes

This coconut dessert (below) is one of my all-time favorites and is included with the other coconut recipes

    Besides water, club soda or seltzer water does the trick for me. Coconut water is great to use in protein shakes.

    i’ve tried pre-packaged coconut water but my favorite way to drink it is straight from a freshly cracked open coconut, though i do not open one very often.

    I love coconut water, but I’ve always been wary of trying flavored varieties. I may need to change that.

    I love cocnut water!
    An coconut, and anything coconut flavor. It has to be my favorite fruit.

    I’d be so excited to win some of these since I can never justify buying them because of the price of them!
