I have a new addiction and I can’t keep it secret any longer. Those who follow our Twitter will know I’ve said goodbye to reaching for the chocolate when the day is dragging at 3.30pm, substituting it for a much-healthier, more delicious energy boost - coconut water.
When I was a Bikram yoga fanatic, I used to dream about the coconut water we could have after class, but then life happened, I got too busy and alongside my daily ‘sweat stretch’, drinking coconut water fell by the wayside. However, it’s been in magazines and online as celebs drink the stuff after their workouts and if these gorgeous girls are continuously sculling it down, there must be something right about it, right?
Cocobella coconut water ($3.95) is amazingly delicious and compact enough to throw in my handbag on the way to work. The pink guava flavour is by far the best, but the taste has nothing on the energy boost I get when I’m about half way through the 250mL bottle. It’s a second wind and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever experienced from a drink before (including coffee).
