Organic King Coconut Water
Sri Lanka is known in some circles as the “capital of coconuts,” as its residents purportedly boast the highest consumption of coconut in the world. In addition to drinking, the coconut is used for cooking, fiber production… even roofing!
The most prized variety on the island is the King coconut, known for its oil content and clean, crisp taste. It is this specific variety that is used to fill each container of Trader Joe’s Organic King Coconut Water.
Organically grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides, the King coconuts used in this beverage are indigenous to Sri Lanka. They are carefully harvested by hand, and produce coconut water with a refreshingly clean, subtly sweet flavor.
Unlike other versions in the marketplace, nothing is added to this Organic Coconut Water, so its sugar content (eight grams per box) is a whopping 40% lower than leading brands. To top it off, one serving contains 660 milligrams of potassium, or 18% of the recommended daily value.
To quench your thirst, chill this shelf-stable libation in the fridge and shake well before serving. It adds tropical coconut flavor to smoothies and mixed drinks, and the attached straw makes it a conveniently tasty option for post-workout or on-the-go rehydration.
Thankfully, you don’t have to take a trip to Sri Lanka to enjoy this tropical treat. Head to Trader Joe’s, where you’ll find 11.16 fluid-ounce containers of Organic King Coconut Water for the supreme value of $1.19 each, everyday.
