The 11 Best Coconut Water Brands To Stay Hydrated and Energized

Coconut water is a healthy and refreshing drink that does way more than just soothe a hangover. Sometimes called buko juice, the liquid nectar of the tropical fruit has enough carbohydrates to energize and also contains vitamins and dietary minerals. The extra benefits aren’t exactly fully endorsed by medical experts, but anybody who has tried a good coconut water knows it has a certain feel-good quality about it.

It’s also fun to drink as it conjures up scenes of sun-kissed beaches and palm fronds blowing in the breeze. The best way to drink the stuff, hands down, is straight from the coconut, straw in hand. But because that’s not often a convenient option, there’s a whole family of canned and bottled coconut water out there for your enjoyment. So sit back, pretend you’re lounging on a sleepy beach somewhere far away, and relish some of the best coconut water brands on the market.
