H2Coco Coconut Water Cocoespresso
This is a brand new coconut water to hit the market and contains one of our other favourites, COFFEE! Now you may be wondering if these 2 awesome ingredients can combine and taste nice? We were pleasantly surprised how nice this coconut water from Thailand is to drink, just like a cold brew coffee but with all the added benefits of potassium and hydration.
The next step was to try it in a smoothie as we needed some energy before a casual kick about at indoor soccer. After feeling a little bit tired we added it to our usual smoothie blend that fills us up but with a difference. Around 15 minutes after consuming the smoothie we felt the “pump” you typically get after drinking coffee!
Real Coco Aloe Vera by Taste Nirvana
Do you need a drink that is healthy and will brighten up your day? The first noticeable quality about Taste Nirvana’s Real Coco Aloe Vera was the subtle taste compared to 100% coconut water, as it is a mix between aloe vera and coconut water. It is very refreshing and the taste isn’t as evident as coconut water which is good if you find coconut water too overpowering or strong to drink.
We found it to contain the following benefits:
- A good alternative to 100% coconut water
- Very refreshing and easy to drink
- Contains round pulp which some people like
- Helps you feel more re-vitalised after a work out
- Assists in cooling down the body after a work out
- Low in sugar (only 4g per 100ml)
Real Coco Aloe Vera is recommended if you cannot drink coconut water and need an alternative drink to plain water for feeling better after a gym session or work out. It is also ideal when consumed icy cold in the can.
You have the choice between a 280ml glass bottle or 520ml can which are both very tasty. View more information at the Taste Nirvana Coco Aloe webpage.
During the hot weather this year we have been busy reviewing coconut water after visiting the beach, playing indoor soccer and to simply stay refreshed in humidity.
Our newest reviews are below, check them out:
- Merito Coconut Water – Refreshing coconut water in a can.
- Cocobella Coconut Water – The flagship Cocobella Coconut Water.
- Cocobella Mango Coconut Water – The mango flavoured Cocobella Coconut Water.
- Nakula Coconut Water – Very nice and refreshing coconut water in a can.
- Pure Young Coconut Water – Huge can, massive taste, very refreshing.
H2Coco has a very nice tasting flavoured coconut water with Pomegranate & Acai that is extremely refreshing on a hot day. It is 95% natural coconut water with 4% natural pomegranate puree and 1% natural acai puree which is good considering the sugar content is only a minimal 5.1 grams in every 100 grams.
The taste of this coconut water is slightly sweet with a subtle taste of pomegranate that gives it a unique taste that is actually quite addictive to drink. After the beach on a hot day it definitely can help you feel hydrated again after being exposed to the sun for a couple of hours.
We would recommend this flavoured coconut water to those of you who do not particularly like the taste of straight coconut water but desire the benefits. The 5% flavour is enough to make the coconut water taste slightly different but not enough to be unhealthy like juice can be (high sugar content).
Pure Young Coconut Water is a new coconut water on the market that we tried recently and found it really good for replenishing your body and feeling good again. It packs a huge 500 ml worth of coconut water and is perfect for those of you who just love a sweet tasting coconut water. The result of drinking a full can in around 5 minutes borderlines on hyperactivity if you haven’t had enough water during the day but definitely kept us feeling nicely refreshed. The taste is really good (as long as you like it sweet) and is surprisingly very easy to drink fast.
You can purchase this coconut water from the excellent organic store at My Health Market in Cottesloe Central for only $2.95 a can for a limited time only!
