Delicious drinks


Vita Coco Coconut Water
This has 20 cals and 4g carbs per 100 ml and has more potassium than sports drinks, so it is a good drink for after exercise to stop dehydration. The water does have a faint hint of flavour, slightly sweet, but does not really taste of coconuts. Once it has been in the fridge it is very refreshing. I get it from Holland and Barrett but I have seen it online from a few places too. I really think it is lovely as a post-run drink.

Vita Coco Coconut water with Mango and Peach:
This has 25 calories per 100ml, and is made of coconut water with mango and peach juice/ puree. It is so delicious and refreshing, the mango and peach flavours come through and make it much more fruity and flavoursome. Perfect for a hot day or after a run.

Vita Coco Coconut water with Pineapple:
To see it being used in a smoothie look here
This is made up of coconut water with pineapple and coconut puree, and some vit c (probably for a natural preservative). It has 25 cals per 100ml, with 6g carbs, and 15mg calcium among other things. This is much nicer than the plain coconut water(it has more flavour), but not as good at the coconut water with mango. I prefer to use it in smoothies now as oppose to having it on its own.

Innocent Lemon, Honey and Ginger Smoothie
Refreshing, not too sweet, nice warming kick with the ginger.
Plus you get some seeds for the bees so what’s not to love?

Whitards Spice Imperial Loose Leaf Tea

I am a big fan of tea, but normally have (fairtrade) sainsbury’s black tea. I have tried a few herbal teas, and rooibos tea, but am not keen. I recently discovered chai tea (black tea with spices like cardamon and cinnamon) and saw this in Whitards last week. It is black tea with orange, vanilla, cinnamon and cloves, and it is gorgeous, it smells like christmas and tastes amazing.
