ZICO Premium Coconut Water. Pure Hydration That’s Full Of Flavor.

Have you heard of Zico Coconut Water? It’s been around a little while now, and the brand is growing bigger and stronger every year. In case you didn’t know, coconut water is “refreshing low-calorie natural beverage. It’s packed with antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, B-complex vitamins, vitamin C and minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese and zinc” (Top10HomeRemedies.com). I have been drinking coconut water for about 2 years, and I enjoy it.

As a Blogger, I have been given an opportunity to work with the Zico company. Their rep Frank, came to my home to personally deliver 4 cases of their coconut water. I felt pretty special about that service, even if I did look a hot mess (I was in my P.J.s and totally caught off guard,lol)! Frank brought the follow flavors to me: Original, Pineapple, Chocolate, & Watermelon Raspberry. I didn’t even know that had the last mentioned flavor. Oh…Em… Geeeee. I wanted to share I and some of my friends think of the waters, so I took a short video of them during one of my home cooking events. I hope you enjoy the video (posed below)!

Great Recipes To Try!

While I was browsing the Zico site, I came across the super easy and delicious ice cream recipe. I tried my hand at making it, and it came out great! Try it with your Zico and let me know how it comes out for you!

5-ingredient homemade ice-cream

This yummy recipe is #madewithZICO Natural 100% coconut water!  Recipe: Ingredients: ½ cup heavy whipping cream, 1 tin of evaporated milk, one tin of condensed milk, 1 cup of frozen mixed berries, 1 cup of ZICO natural 100% coconut water. Mix all ingredients in a bowl, blend with an inversion blender + freeze in a freezer safe container.

Mean Green Mint Drink

I also created a recipe of my own. It’s a “Green Drink” that I put together using my veggies from my own garden. It’s refreshing, hydrating, healthy, and pretty darn delicious! Try it out and let me know what you think of it!

The amount of mint I used basically took away the “green” taste.
Recipe:

  • 1 cup of fresh mint (peppermint)
  • 1 cup fresh kale1 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • Sprig of parsley
  • 6 ounces Zico chocolate 🍫 coconut 🌴 water.

Combine all ingredients into blender. Blend well (it takes about 20 seconds in my ninja blender). Enjoy!
