There’s nothing as refreshing as coconut water and this coconut berry smoothie will quench your thirst and flood your body with antioxidants immediately.
Coconuts grow in places where it’s 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’re hot, sweaty and in need of some serious thirst quenching hydration!
Don’t you love the perfectness of nature? (or as Dwight Schrute from The Office would say, “Perfectenschlag”) Here’s a super simple recipe to hydrate you while giving you energy AND tons of antioxidants to boot.
Oh, by the way, did you know that coconuts contain more potassium that bananas ounce per ounce? Well, they do.
Try it for yourself. Make this coconut berry smoothie and don’t forget to check out our other smoothie recipes here
