3 Ways: Coconut Water

Who hasn’t heard of coconut water and it’s many health benefits? Chances are you know it’s low in calories and has more potassium than four bananas. And you probably have a stack of green smoothies recipes in heavy rotation for weekday breakfasts. But I thought there had to be more this tasty nectar could be used for. I went on a search that turned up some surprising results. Plus, I got to work on recreating one of my all-time favorites, Trader Joe’s Fruit Floes. With just a few easy ingredients tasty treats are at my finger tips.
