During my recent visit to India, to the southern beach city of Chennai, I resorted to one of my first loves to keep me cool and hydrated.
Chennai is one of the most humid cities ever, and with all the perspiration and potential for dehydration, the best medicine and a wonderful treat is fresh coconut water. Sure you can buy coconut water off the shelf, but there is nothing to beat that fresh coconut water that you can drink out of the greenest mug in the world, the coconut shell itself!
Low in calories, naturally fat- and cholesterol free, more potassium than four bananas, and super hydrating – these are just a few of the many benefits ascribed to America’s latest health craze: coconut water. — WebMD (http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/features/truth-about-coconut-water)
It’s a fad now, but I grew up drinking this during our many summer car trips. There were many incidents where the vendor would actually climb up the coconut tree to find us the best coconuts to drink water from. Some coconuts would have a soft inner coconut meat that was absolutely divine.
There is nothing to beat that instant refreshing feeling one gets from fresh coconut water. Try it and you will not drink anything else!!!
