There is a new trend in healthy drinks and it’s catching on fast. Active people are now encouraged to choose coconut water as a more natural alternative to sports beverages, energy drinks and flavored water. A growing number of coconut-water brands–at least five brands are on the market–are competing for dominance this summer. Makers note that their containers are more earth friendly than plastic bottles too. Currently, you can place these coconut water drink containers in glass front version vending machines.

It’s high in potassium, packed with electrolytes, and it’s fat-free. Although some flavored versions have more sugar–and typically taste better–unflavored coconut is low in sugar.
Don’t confuse coconut water with coconut milk, which is made from the white flesh of the fruit, coconut water is the clear liquid in the fruit’s center. Also unlike coconut milk, the water is very low in calories and fat and high in the electrolyte potassium, which is why it’s often marketed as a natural alternative to sports drinks.
Most coconut waters contain only one ingredient, which is why it’s catching the eyes of people looking for healthy alternative drinks. Look for it in your local stores and vending machines and try it!
