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

    Coconut water was my life line when I ran my first marathon! I chugged a VitaCoco after I hit my wall and it definitely helped revive me!!!

    Pretty much the only thing I drink other than water is an adult beverage ;) So…I’d have to say whipped cream vodka with Oj!

    I am obsessed with coconut water, especially the fruit flavored ones. My wallet doesn’t love this obsession though :)

    I trained for my first marathon last spring with coconut water and decreased most of my runnin related tummy troubles. I was sold! I mostly use it in smoothies but will have to get more creative I see!

    As much as I work out, I just don’t like water. Plain water never appeals to me. I stay hydrated by eating fruits and vegetables for the most part. I do enjoy my 32 oz. blue Powerade Zero for spin class. And I just recently tried Gatorade 2G because my gym’s new healthy vending machines have flavored waters, G2, coconut water, and some other sporty beverages. Vita Coco is my favorite coconut water. I’ve tried them all. Vita Coco is one of the few that isn’t a concentrate. I prefer the original, plain variety to the flavored versions. But coconut water is invigorating. I work hard and I play hard…Vita Coco definitely helps me recover from a night out so I can rock the day ahead. It’s a great source of potassium. Much more effective than a sports drink, hands down!
