Coconut water is so much more than a basic beverage.

Coconut water became a health food craze a few years back, and even though it’s not longer in the nightly news, hopefully it’s still a part of your diet in some way.

Research on the slightly sweet, nutty-flavored liquid is encouraging. It’s said to have antioxidant properties, defend against diabetes and kidney stones, lower blood pressure and provide a perfect hydration blend of potassium, magnesium and sodium if consumed after prolonged exercise.

Try these recipes for new ways to use your favorite coconut water. We all know it’s delicious on its own, but it’s fun to find new ways to incorporate the naturally sweet drink in your diet.
