Make Your Smoothies Better with Coco Joy Coconut Water

How many of you have ever tried coconut water before? Personally, I've had coconut milk before but this was my first time trying 100% pure coconut water. All I can really say now is...Wow, I've been missing out and now have jumped on the bandwagon!

Recently I had the opportunity to try out Coco Joy Pure Coconut Water and I'm excited to share my experience with all of you. This coconut water has no added sugar, no preservatives and is not made from a concentrate! You can drink it straight from the package or mix it with other things.

Coconut water is known to be packed with nutrients, but not many people know that it is loaded with electrolytes that not only keep you hydrated, but generate energy in the body. Some even use it as a supplement to energy and sports drinks as it is all-natural as opposed to the artificial flavors and additives commonly found in soft drinks. Add some coconut water to a smoothie for an extra boost of energy.

I decided to sample the coconut water straight from the can for my first time. I have to admit...straight from the can was okay but I much preferred it chilled and in a glass of crushed ice. Sorry, I like my beverages very cold. One of the things I absolutely love about this coconut water is that it's only 58 calories per serving and one serving is 8.3 fl. oz. That's great for those of us who are watching our weight or who have dietary restrictions.

The second time I tried it...I liked it even more! Since I'm a big smoothie drinker I've been mixing some of the coconut water into my fruit smoothies which has added a nice punch to the flavor. It mixes up really well and for the most part...you don't even know it's in there! One of my favorite types of smoothies to drink is a Peach & Mango Smoothie and trust me...your smoothies will taste even better when you add the Coco Joy Coconut Water!

In addition to the coconut water, Coco Joy has a variety of other coconut related products. They also have a line of coconut milk, coconut water with juice, coconut ice cream, coconut chips, snack bars and a whole lot more! You can learn more about Coco Joy and all of their products by visiting them online.

I received a coconut water sample in a monthly healthy foods box subscription that I won but I am saving it since it fits so well in my purse! Can't wait to try it since I love all things coconut. I bet it tastes great in smoothies.
