DCOCO Young Coconut Water – Giveaway #60

Coconut Water

Drink Reviews, Giveaway | 13th June 2015 | By

The coconut revolution is truly upon us. I remember when we first started buying cold-pressed coconut oil over a decade ago. It was hard to find and very expensive. Now the food world has realised the wonders of coconut and I’m very glad to say not only is coconut oil cheaper and easier to find, but there is a wealth of other coconut products out there to choose from.

Other than drinking the coconut ‘milk’ as I’d always called it out of fresh (ish) coconuts, I’d never had commercially bought coconut water until last year. I was very excited about it as it’s thirst quenching, tasty and good for you without being overly sweet.

Coconut Water

 

DCOCO is young coconut water and is bought to us from Portsmouth by Debbie and Venky Ltd, a fourth generation family of farmers with roots in India and Sri Lanka. The water is harvested from young King coconuts which are cultivated specifically for drinking and is the first such available in the UK. It is naturally healthy, being rich in potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and sodium. Indeed one bottle contains more potassium than a banana. It is said to increase the metabolism, thus aiding weight loss and also to have anti-aging effects. I really must drink more of it. The coconut water comes in handy little 210ml glass bottles, which can of course be used after consuming or just recycled. I make lots of cordials and sauces and these bottles are just the right size for keeping them in. They are also a good size for shaking up a cheeky cocktail or two for a summer’s picnic.  Each bottle has only 60 calories, is low in fat, saturates, sugar and salt. The only addition made is vitamin C, none of the added sugar, colours and preservatives that are found in many sports drinks.

Coconut Water

I was sent a case of twelve bottles to try and DCOCO has kindly agreed to offer up a similar case to one Tin and Thyme reader.  The young water tastes fresher and sharper than the mature coconut waters I’ve tasted in the past and is wonderfully thirst quenching as well as refreshing. As CT and I had only 6 bottles each, it’s hard to tell if it’s made us any healthier, but we like to think it has.

Thanks to Debbie and Venky Ltd for the young coconut water. There was no requirement to write a positive review and as always all opinions are my own.

      I always feel better for drinking coconut water, i’m sure it hydrates me far better than anything else. I love the taste too, and enjoy trying different brands. My dad used to buy us coconuts and we would watch him as he used a hammer and nail, then would pour a smidgen of water into a glass for us to share.

    Coconuts make me think of my childhood in Africa. You could buy coconuts from roadside vendors, who would hack off the top of the coconut with a couple of strokes of a machete. I always wondered how they managed to avoid cutting themselves. I especially loved young coconut, where you drink the “milk”, then use a spoon to scoop out the soft flesh to eat.
