Zola Coconut Water Lemonade

Like a lot of my fellow fitness friends, I enjoy coconut water. I recently tried a new drink from Zola that contains the perfect blend of tart & sweet. What is that drink? It’s Zola Coconut Water Lemonade! This drink contains coconut water, lemonade, Vitamin C (yay!) and cane sugar, among other items. It’s also gluten-free & dairy-free.


But how does it taste? I really like it! It’s not overly sugary tasting like most lemonade. My husband & daughter love their sweet lemonade, which is why I rarely drink it or have it with an iced tea (Arnold Palmer style). With a Zola Coconut Water Lemonade, you get the refreshing taste of a lemonade, plus the health benefits from coconut water. Win-win…

I also received a few other goodies in my care package from Zola, which their company motto is Live Live to the Fullest!


Inside this care package were cans of Zolo Coconut Water with Pulp, Coconut Water without Pulp & Coconut Water with Expresso! I’m not a fan of pulp. I don’t even like it in my orange juice. So I am glad that I got to try it with & without pulp. The Expresso drink gave me a little kick that I needed after my workout.

We are in the midst of a heatwave in Los Angeles, with highs in the Valley at 100+ degrees. So I really enjoyed that cold Coconut Water with Expresso, which has as much caffeine as a 2 oz. shot of expresso. Plus the calorie & fat content of this drink is lower than a blended coffee drink that you would get from your local coffee chain!

So the next time you find yourself wanting a refreshing drink, you might want to consider one of the coconut waters from Zola!

CocoZen™ Coconut Water – Product Review

It’s another hot day in the San Fernando Valley! I’ve learned from living in LA that while many folks like to stay active & physically fit, another very important lesson is to stay hydrated. The intense heat is no joke in the SFV & you don’t want to be caught without water or some sort of liquid that can help cool you down & refresh you, especially after a tough workout. That’s why I’m glad to have had CocoZen™ Coconut Water on-hand after my workout at a barre fitness class in the Valley.


Did you know that coconut water is 95% water & a fat & cholesterol-free drink? It’s also a great source of electrolytes, you know, that stuff that they always tout in sports drinks, like the one that starts with a “G.”  😉  Coconut water is also a good source of B vitamins.

How does CocoZen™ Coconut Water? It tastes great. I personally like coconut water. The fact that each CocoZen™ box contains 100% juice…well, I just knew that I would love it!


The other thing that I liked about CocoZen™ Coconut Water is their packaging. It’s packaged in a Tetra-Pak carton that is recyclable.


You can buy CocoZen™ Coconut Water on Amazon.com & in select NYC stores. Check out their website for more info!

Tell me: What do you enjoy drinking on a hot day, especially after a workout?
