Or, for those who want a tasty refreshing post-workout drink, Vita Coco comes with the additional benefits of being gluten-free, fat free, dairy free, lactose free, nut free, oat free....and sold for £2.89 from Holland & Barrett (also found at Sainsbury's and Waitrose). A note to those considering this drink - delicious when chilled, not so wonderful when warm. Keep it cool folks.
100% Natural Coconut
Now, I'm all for my vitamins and electrolytes, but plain coconut water is... eurgh. I'm not a fan of milk - unless mixed with chocolate Nesquick - so it was unsurprising that this felt like drinking breast milk or some sort of watered down soya milk. A hit with the celebrities, including Madonna, Sienna Miller and Rihanna, but unfortunately not a hit with me.
Acai and Pomegranate
Add a punch of acai berry, and you get a fruity and tropical kick on top of the healthy tasting coconut water. Whilst I'm not particularly keen on berry flavoured things, this was very tasty - not as refreshing as alternative flavours - but was a definitely an improvement on the natural coconut water.
Peach and Mango
This one is my absolute favourite of the Vita Coco range. Light, juicy and refreshing, the peach and mango flavours work together to make a delicate citrus-esque flavour. It is definitely not too sweet or overpowering, but tastes like a smooth nectar.
I loved the presentation of these Vita Coco Lemonade press packs, and the giant VC jug is incredible. All very retro, and a hit with me, before I've even screwed off the lid. This lemonade is the latest addition to their array of flavours, in time for summer. It is made with a lemon puree blended with their all-natural coconut water and like their other flavours, has more potassium than a banana. The lemon is very refreshing, particularly during a UK heatwave, but unfortunately is nowhere near as citrus and tangy as I'd like! More on the sweet/sticky side, but I would still recommend it (and not just because I have the matching sunglasses!). I will definitely continue to buy this as the lemons make it more refreshing than the mango and passionfruit one. Don't expect it to be fizzy though!
