“Cuckoo” For Coconut Water

“Cuckoo” For Coconut Water

In my quest to try to break my 3 cups of coffee a day (by the way I am down to 1 big cup) I turned to coconut water. It really does give me great energy and I love it! Drinking coconut water doesn't just taste good, it's healthy for you. Here are some of the benefits:
  1. It hydrates and balances the PH of the body
  2. It's a superfood filled with vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids and enzymes
  3. It's an anti-viral that works to remove toxins from the body
  4. It has the same level of electrolytes and minerals as found in human blood. In fact, in case of emergency it can be used as an IV drip.

I could go on and on, but let's talk smoothies. Here is one of my recipes using coconut water: 1 - 2 cups coconut water 1/2 cups spinach (a handful or two) 2 - 3 pieces of kale (without vine) 1/2 mango (or to taste) 1/4 pineapple (also to taste) 1/4 inch of ginger again to taste (optional, but I like a lot) Blend in a blender with ice or you can freeze the fruit if you have a good blender that can break it down. Tips: If you are new to greens in your smoothie you might want to add more fruit (or stevia, if you are worried about too much sugar). Also, I open a fresh young thai coconut, but you can buy the coconut water prepackaged at the health food store if you lack ninja skills. :)

Yum, yum, yummy
