i found that the brand using Thai coconuts was waaaay better than the Brazilian coconut. I like it after a long hot bike ride or a sweaty humid jog. I wouldn't make a habit of it other than that. Now that it's finally cooling off, i probably won't be buying any for awhile.
I like to hydrate with it when I am doing a 2 hour long practice session with my paddling team. I liked it most when I opened a fresh one, tipped the contents into a bottle, and freeze it to place in the fridge the day of my practice
Fresh coconut water, straight out of the green coconut is like an elixir here!
There is nothing like getting one out of the fridge, on a hot tropical day, lopping the top off with a machete and drinking the juice. Lovely! Full of electrolytes and vitamins. I think you could live on them! In fact, during World war II, they used to use coconut water as an alternative to intravenous blood plasma, in emergency situations, because it has exactly the same chemical make-up as human plasma.
