Ever since I spent time in Ghana and tried the fresh coconuts from the street vendors on a hot, sweaty day, I have turned to coconut water for hydration. There’s just something about coconut water that re-energizes your body. Coconut water is low in calories, but full of health benefits like natural electrolytes, potassium and Vitamin C.
My boys are pretty sports-obsessed and right now they are in the middle of baseball season. I’ve been a little weary of buying those sports drinks because of the ingredients, so they have been drinking Vita Coco Kids. There are no artificial colors, sweeteners, flavors or preservatives in these on-the-go drinks and the natural electrolytes provide the perfect alternative to sports drinks and juice boxes.
Vita Coco Kids was even hand-picked by Target as one of their “Made to Matter,” products. The Made to Matter program is a collection that brings together 16 leading natural, organic and sustainable brands to introduce families to new products and make them more accessible.
Besides the Vita Coco Kids being a great on-the-go drink for sports or in lunch boxes, they are naturally a great addition to smoothies. Here is one of our favorite after-school snacks!
Banana Berry Vita Coco Kids Smoothie
3 frozen bananas
1 cup of berries, any kind
1/2 cup milk, any kind
(2) 6 oz. Very Cherry Beach Vita Coco Kids
Blend together and enjoy! There is so much healthiness packed into this after school or sports game snack!
