Coconut water has been touted as a good sports recovery drink for many years now and I’ve had cartons of it in race goody bags but, to be honest, I haven’t liked it much. But when DCOCO asked me if I wanted to try their 100% natural young coconut water, I thought I’d give it another go. Plus, as I’ve been making a lot of smoothies lately, I thought if I didn’t like it on its own, I could blend it with some fruit. I’d imagine it’d be great with some pineapple and strawberry. Or sod the strawberry and stick some rum in it and make a piña colada instead.
As it happened, I found DCOCO coconut water perfectly nice to drink after a visit to the gym. I haven’t tried it in a smoothie yet but I have, however, used it in a recipe for raw chilli crackers (which you can see on my Planet Veggie blog).
What makes DCOCO unique to other coconut water brands is that it’s the UK’s first 100% natural young coconut water and never uses concentrates, preservatives or mature coconuts.
The only downside really is that the bottles are made of glass, so you probably won’t want to carry them around with you in case they break and you end up with coconut-aroma’d kit (although, let’s face it, that would be preferable to Powerade-aroma’d kit). On the upside though, at least being glass means they’re easy to recycle.
