Coconut Water

What do people think?

Is it a health drink? Is the sugar a problem? Is it any better than fruit juice?

I bought some yesterday and it tastes a bit like heavy water that's filling - bonus!

    I love it, but it's too high in sugars for my goals :-(

    I found a recipe for coconut water that I plan to try out. It is has coconut water, bananas, and frozen pineapple chunks in it. You mix it up in a blender and turns into a smoothie. :smile: :smile:

    I love it and drink it regularly, never been concerned with the sugar to be honest, the vita coco brand has 5g/100ml sugar but also has a decent amount of both potassium and vitamin C :) I just drink it in moderation & enjoy it.

    I'm not concerned about sugar as such but I have absorbed the messages about the 'evils' of fruit juice to the point where I won't drink it. I'm thinking that coconut water is different but not sure if that's just the advertising.
