Have you ever tried Coconut Water?

*** PLEASE NOTE:  The opinions expressed in this post are my own.  I was NOT monetarily compensated by Zola Acai.  I was given their products (and a really cute pair of sunglasses) for review purposes only.

Coconut water.  You’ve probably heard of it, but have you ever tried it?  Do you know the benefits of drinking it?  Check this out.  Did you know coconut water is:

  • a great all natural way to hydrate?
  • low in sodium
  • has potassium  (which is great for me because I have a banana allergy)
  • has a naturally sweet / nutty flavor

After a recent 80+ degree trail run I remember I had Zola stashed in my fridge (I had been hiding it from the kiddos) so I thought what a perfect time to try it.  I tried the Zola 100% Natural Coconut Water in a can.  (there are two servings per can:  55 cal / serving)  Now I have to say I was a little wary because I have tried other flavored coconut brand waters before that I didn’t really like.  However I found Zola quite pleasing.  I drank half the can and saved the rest for later.

I enjoyed the flavor and the fact that it has potassium, Being allergic to bananas myself I’m always a little worried about not getting enough in my diet.  I think I will try adding it to my smoothie since I can’t throw in a banana like a lot of runners do.  Maybe I should also bring some to my next race since I always have to pass by the free banana table.  Good idea 🙂

  1. I love coconut water – especially the ZICO chocolate flavor. I’ve never tried Zola before but always on the lookout for a new brand!
