What is coconut water?
Not to be confused with high fat coconut milk or coconut water in the can. I have tried coconut water from the can and there is no comparison.. Fresh Coconut water from an actual coconut, is one of my favorite ways to keep hydrated after my workout or on a hot day.
Coconut water is a clear liquid that comes from the center of a young coconut. It has a naturally refreshing taste, with a sweet nutty flavor. It is also a great option to use in your favorite smoothie. It contains easily digested carbohydrate in the form of sugar and electrolytes.
