I’m so excited about this post! Naked Coconut Water has asked me to take part in their Closest to the Coconut Challenge!
For the challenge, I received Naked Coconut Water along with real green coconuts, and was asked to compare the two in taste. Here is a look at my experience.
First, I opened up the green coconut! I’ve never opened a real coconut before, so this was an interesting experience 😉 but I finally got it!
I stuck a straw inside and took my first taste.
Next, I tried the Naked Coconut Water. Much easier to get open 😉
Okay, it’s no wonder they call Naked Coconut Water “closest to the coconut!” It tasted EXACTLY like the water from the actual green coconuts! I have to say I was pleasantly surprised, as I thought there would definitely be a distinct difference between the two. If I took the test again with a blindfold on, I wouldn’t ever be able to tell which was which! They aren’t lying when they say this stuff is the real deal!
I was definitely expecting both to taste more “coconutty,” having only had things like coconut flakes or coconut butter before, but the flavors were surprisingly different. I can’t wait to experiment with some smoothie recipes including this stuff for some post workout fuel, since coconut water is naturally filled with electrolytes. Who needs sports drinks when you’ve got coconut water?
That’s where you guys come in!
