Rehydrate With Coconut Water (with a cunning little stir fry recipe!)

Holidaying  in Maui and loving the fresh fruit that is available here – pineapples, bananas and coconuts especially.  Stopped at the COCONUT CABOOSE yesterday – just loved it! Freshly picked coconuts, first of all pierced so you can drink the nutrient dense coconut water then halved and the fresh young flesh of the coconut freed from the shell ready to chow down on.

They also made a delicious ‘coconut ice cream’ which was made 100% from coconut – the flesh pressed and 1gm of coconut sugar added then frozen – it was delicious!!!

Coconut water is a great addition to your diet and can be used in a magnitude of ways. Here’s a great recipe that allows you to include coconut water and enjoy their nutritious benefits
