Encouraging signs of coconut water going mainstream

Mr. X-sXe and I are big fans of coconut water, “nature’s Gatorade,” as it’s often billed. Seems it’s getting a bit more mainstream lately, as in this new flavor of Naked smoothies. Note that even though the label touts fewer calories, there are still 40 grams of sugar per bottle. Taste-wise, I couldn’t detect the coconut water, but it had a pleasant tropical flavor overall, and I could definitely taste the guava (a vastly underrated fruit).

The cool thing about Naked is they tell you exactly how much fruit went into the bottle. This one included 3/4 of a guava, 1/2 of a coconut’s water, 3/4 of a peach, 1/3 of a mango, 3/4 of an orange, and 3/4 of an apple.

    Coconut water is nature’s Gatorade. And the closest thing to commercial coconut water is Vita Coco, which I highly recommend to anyone and everyone who wants something healthy and nutritious.
