There is nothing as refreshing as coconut water.
Coconuts grow where it is HOT and has high levels of humidity (70-80%+). With heat and humidity, comes sweat and loss of bodily fluids throughout the day. So it makes sense that coconuts provide the exact nutrients that we need when we are hot, sweaty and in need of some serious thirst quenching hydration!

Oh, by the way, did you know that coconuts contain more potassium that bananas ounce per ounce? Well, they do.
