“Did you just chew your water.” Yes, co-worker, Yes. I. Did. and I loved it.
All these years I’ve been buying my orange juice pulp free. YUCK. Pulp in orange juice is disgusting. Pulp in Coconut Water – HEAVEN. Go on, chew your water!
Zola sent me three of their products to review, The Coconut Water with Pulp, 100% Natural Coconut Water and the Original Açaí juice. I would have to rank them with pulp, the açaí juice, then without pulp. I would not turn down any of them again and on our next grocery run will pick up more of the Coconut Water with pulp FOR SURE.
Each of the products are listed as being
- USDA Organic & Kosher certified
- Sustainably harvested
- Gluten and GMO free
- 100% Vegan
- The cans are BPA free
Over the past eighteen months or so while I’ve been tracking my diet I realized that I was drinking a lot of my calories and it really adds up in your diet. Each of the Zola Coconut Water with Pulp cans is 2 servings and each serving is 13 grams of sugar. Compared to the 14 grams in Gatorade, the 19 in a Lipton Green Tea or the 31 in a Starbucks Frappuccino… I think this Zola Coconut Water is pretty great!
The açaí had 22 grams of sugar per serving, so I had to cut those servings in half and I watered them down. The taste was perfect for me once I prepared it as 4 oz of water and 4 oz of the açaí juice. I do this with all of my juice now, I really don’t like how sweet juice is anymore, so I won’t hold it against Zola, it’s not you, it’s me. If you like sweet juices, you’ll like the açaí juice from Zola straight from the bottle. If not, mix it with water and you’ll fall in love, like I did.
Have you found that you like things now that you didn’t before? FYI, I still don’t like lima beans. NOPE. Some things will never change. I’m just glad that I’ve changed my stance on both coconut water AND pulp. Try something new this week – you just might like it! Not you, lima beans, you had your chance.
