The only way I can drink it is in a smoothy - otherwise it is awful. Post workout try pineapple, baby spinach, apple and coconut water, blitz with ice if you are hot.

I love coconut water but it has to be the right brand as some brands do taste awful. I had a Woolworths Macro brand one on the weekend and it was horrid. I've only tried one brand from can and while I didn't hate it, I didn't like it all that much either. My favourite is the Cocobella brand. I often put a frozen banana, a handful of frozen strawberries and a cup of coconut water in the blender and blitz it up. Yum.

Cocobella brand lover here too. I still say it's gross, but it's also really refreshing, and I definitely feel better after a workout if I have a glass of coconut water.
I can't be bothered drilling holes in to coconuts and drinking it from there, so just got used to the taste from the cartons.
I also find nudie brand nice too...others have been disgusting.
I buy cocobella brand from Aldi for $5 a litre, heaps cheaper than buying it in individual cans.

Oh only young coconuts are yum, bit the old brown ones

Mmmm fresh baby coconuts. You can empty them, put them back in the fridge and, tada, more coconut water. Nom nom.

I LOVE coconut water! I couldn't get enough of it when I was pregnant with DS2!
I am not a fan of the tinned or packaged stuff though, it has a very different taste! Fresh is best, at my local aldi and Coles you could get the fresh ones for $2.50 each.
You normally get about 300-500ml in one coconut. And you can eat the flesh or cook with it.

The fresh young coconut juice is delicious and tastes way better than the bottled or canned one. The packaged ones have an unnatural taste to them. However quite a number of times I have bought fresh ones which had gone off inside even though they were within due date.
I usually check really carefully for any black mouldy spots, it should feel quite heavy and at least 3 weeks until expiry.

Unless you live close to an actual coconut tree I have never bought a coconut that tastes close to fresh. The supermarket ones I see have come from thailand and always taste off.. too coconutty. Im always on the hunt for a freah coconut in perth but unfortunately I dont think its possible! The canned ones are really gross unless you like a really coconut flavour like an old coconut not a young one. So sad as im desperate I even looked up shipping them from queensland at any cost.. there are websites but the time I looked they were down. . Must not have been a good season. . Hmm
