Why I'm Obsessed with Zico Coconut Water + The Benefits

 

Happy Monday Everyone!

 

If you happen to follow me on snapchat or watch my instagram stories, I’m sure you have seen how obsessed I am with this chocolate coconut water! I was introduced to Zico chocolate coconut water after getting on my own little kick of drinking more coconut water a few months back. The reason I began drinking coconut water was mainly to replenish my body with electrolytes. During the summer I was teaching swimming lessons in the heat daily, running in the evenings, and getting my power yoga in once or twice a week. I knew that I could go for something like Gatorade or any other on the shelf product to replenish my body but I wanted more than that. I wanted a product that would aid my body in other ways. That’s when I got on my kick of coconut water and I’m not going to lie, it was rough. I had to try a few different brands to see which I liked better and even though I was able to tolerate it, I never craved it. After drinking different brands of coconut water, a friend of mine I had told me about the chocolate flavor by Zico. Even though I had seen this product before, I was hesitant on trying it. One afternoon I gave it a go and I have been hooked ever since! It reminds me of chocolate milk but with a ton of benefits to it.
