Coconut Water & Coconut Milk

Coconuts are now soaring in popularity. It seems everywhere you look now stores, gyms and random coffee shops are selling some version of coconut water or milk. If you’ve been wondering what the deal is with these coconut water and coconut milk products, then read on.

While both liquids are from the coconut, the composition is very different because they arrive to a different liquidity at different times in the coconut’s life. While both are very high in nutrients, they have many different benefits that are equally valuable.

Coconut water is exceptionally great for any time when you’re feeling dehydrated (i.e. during or after sporting events or exercising). Before getting on an airplane is also great since most people feel a bit dehydrated from air travel. As for coconut milk, this fantastic liquid can be substituted wherever milk is normally used like in smoothies, oatmeal, baking). If you’re craving a plain old glass of milk, choose the coconut milk instead.
