Blueberry Coconut Water


Coconut water is great by itself. It's a perfect post-workout drink because it contains a high amount of electrolytes which helps maintain proper fluid balance in your body -- I love it after hot yoga. But sometimes you might want some added flavor.

There are a lot of flavored varieties to choose from, but why not make your own? Adding some fresh fruit to coconut water is a fantastic way to make your taste buds happy, while also get the added vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber that come from the fruit.

Check out this quick and simple recipe for blueberry coconut water. It tastes like dessert.

Ingredients:

16 oz coconut water
1/2 container frozen blueberries

In a blender add the coconut water and blueberries and blend until desired smoothness.

Tip: Add a tablespoon of chia seeds or a scoop of protein powder and turn it into a protein shake.

Enjoy!
