Coconut water

by Ashley on August 26, 2011

I wonder if the coconut water companies know what a market they have in expectant mothers. (Probably.) Just about every pregnant woman I know loves to drink coconut water–usually citing electrolytes for hydration (a nice alternative to brightly colored and sugary sports drinks) and high potassium for leg cramps. And chilled coconut water with a twist of lemon in a martini glass was one of my favorite mocktails. So I was particularly interested to see this New York Times “Well” post comparing sports drinks and coconut water for rehydration.

Are you a fan? Do you have a favorite brand? Nothing beats the real thing, but which comes closest?

P.S. Hudson is featured on Babble today! How exciting!
