Coco Libre Organic Coconut Water

Tuesday, February 19, 2013


As of lately I have been on a real coconut-kick! I am not sure where this sudden burst of fixation came from but it makes me want to move to a hot sunny island where I can have fresh coconuts every day.  Wouldn't that be nice? In my search of anything coconut-flavoured, I've come across the REAL DEAL when it comes to fresh and tasty coconut water. I was lucky enough to receive some bottles of Maverick Brand’s Coco Libre Coconut Water and their new Flavoured Coconut Water with Chia Seeds.

Coco Libre’s coconut water is pure, organic coconut water with absolutely no added ingredients. Their water comes from young green coconut’s  and each drop delivers refreshing hydration as well as 5 electrolytes K, NA, Mg, CA and P. It is only 40 calories per 8 oz. serving and contains more potassium than a banana!

I received bottles of the original coconut water, pineapple coconut water and the 4 flavours of the chia seed coconut water which is cherry apple, raspberry lemonade, strawberry kiwi and blackberry pomegranate.

Original Coconut Water:
The original coconut water was very authentic tasting; it was basically like drinking right from a fresh cut coconut except that it was cold since I had it in the fridge.  It was mild tasting just like real coconut water, not sugary like some of the weird brands I've tried before.  It was SUPER refreshing to drink on its own or to use it in place of liquid in a smoothie.  Maybe a pineapple, coconut water, mango smoothie? Yum!



Coconut Water with Pineapple:
This is the original coconut water with added organic fresh pineapple juice.  This one kind of tasted the same as the original as the pineapple flavour wasn't that prominent.  It could've been because I had the bottle in the freezer and it got a bit too cold but overall it was good but not very pineappley (I like making up words)!  This would be delicious on a hot day with frozen pineapple cubes in replace of ice cubes, totally saving that idea for the summer :P

Chia Seed Coconut Water:
These chia seed coconut waters are such a great idea because you are getting maximum health benefits from the chia seeds plus the coconut water. You’re also left feeling really full after downing a bottle because the chia seeds absorb up to 12 times its weight in water.  These little seeds also contain omega, fibre and calcium so it’s the perfect drink especially for those who like to work out.  It really gives you that extra energy and hydration that you need for some of those tougher, longer work outs.

Of the 4 flavours I have only tried the strawberry kiwi and the raspberry lemonade so far and they both were full of flavour! At first it felt funny in my throat drinking liquid packed with chia seeds but I kind of liked it after awhile. The chia makes the liquid a bit thicker so it’s almost like drinking a thicker more watered down smoothie.  It was fruity and satisfying and I literally was full for at least 3 hours after downing one of these.  I really love the idea of chia seed drinks so I am excited to have these again as well as discover other chia drinks out there!

Thank you Coco Libre for making some damn good coconut water!

Coco Libre Coconut Water is sold at many stores across North America, here is a current list of stores: http://www.cocolibreorganic.com/store-locator.html

  2. I haven't tried coconut water yet but I'm going to look for these at my health food store (I've seen coconut water there, just didn't pay attention to what kind). I've had kombucha with chia seeds in it and really liked it. I actually ended up chewing each drink so it lasted quite a while-lol. I'm weird and can't not chew if there's chunks in a drink, even tiny ones. BTW I got the hemp hearts and am enjoying them on cereal-so good! They remind me of softer, smaller sunflower seeds. Thank you for that giveaway.

    1. I find a lot of people say that! They love coconut flavored things but when it comes to drinking actual coconut water, they don't like the taste!

  4. I've only tried coconut water once and really didn't like it! However, I haven't tried this brand or these flavours, so perhaps I'd enjoy them more than the one I tasted :)

  11. I remember when the first coconut waters hit the market. Some just didn't taste very good. I'm so happy the quality has improved, as I've now become addicted to the stuff. ;)

  12. Hey! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a template
    or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.

    If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Thanks!
