I was delighted when I got the opportunity to sample COCOZIA 100% organic coconut water.  Let me start off by saying, I’m not a huge fan of coconut in general.  I’m a huge fan of the health benefits of coconut water.  It’s great for hydration, helps digestion, lowers blood pressure and is rich with nutrients.  I have tons of friends who drink coconut water straight up and they love it.  For me, I love to use coconut water in my smoothies in place of using water or any dairy products.  COCOZIA does not have an overwhelming coconut flavor which is great for someone like me.  I used COCOZIA in my Pineapple-Cucumber smoothie and it tasted so good. I love to start my day with this drink!
