10 Amazing Recipes Using Coconut Water

Ever have someone talk up a product so much that you eventually cave in and go and buy it then realize that you actually don’t know what to do with it? Well, that’s what happened to me when a friend told me about the great benefits of adding coconut water to your diet. I went out and bought a few bottles only to realize that I don’t even know where to start. I tried drinking it straight up but that was not happening…

So for all those who have made a similar blunder regarding coconut water, or if I am the friend talking you into buying a bottle or two, I will be kind enough to list 10 ways in which you could add this food into your diet:
