Coconut Water in Oatmeal

Coconut Water and Oatmeal: A Perfect Harmony

The next time you go to reach for coconut water, don't sip it, stir it! Rather than using milk or water to make a bowl of oatmeal, use coconut water instead. Deemed nature's sports drink, coconut water has more potassium than a banana as well as calcium, magnesium, and additional electrolytes to keep the body balanced and hydrated throughout the day.

With its slight nutty taste — you can also opt for a variety of fruity flavors — mixing coconut water with oatmeal can add extra flavor and nutrients to your breakfast staple. And while it's loaded with flavor, coconut water contains no saturated fat and has only 45 calories per cup. Top with a few slices of fresh fruit to complete this sweet, all natural breakfast.

Good tip. With all the flavors available in coconut water, this would be a great addition to any oatmeal. Healthy fiber, carbs, and plenty of vitamins and minerals.
