A question people have asked recently is what is

the difference between coconut water and
coconut milk.
Well, thanks to Mike, I’m going to go

over those two right now.

Coconut water and coconut milk are in many
ways different.

To start with, coconut water doesn’t have
the fat content the milk has.

To get coconut milk you have to grind up
the meat of the coconut and press out the
liquid. The liquid you obtain is white and
very high in fat and calories… one cup
has around 550 calories.

Coconut milk is creamy and has a strong
coconut flavor. Coconut water has a mild
taste and it’s pretty clear.

Another big difference is the electrolyte
content which gives coconut water its
cleansing and hydrating properties.

Coconut water has been regarded as a very
nutritious and medicinal food for thousand
of years!

Did you know that coconut water has saved
many lives during times of famine and war?


By being injected into the blood stream
as a hydration fluid. That’s right. It’s
the only natural liquid that can be used
intravenously in place of saline

Coconut water has many health properties,
most of them thanks to its potassium

It helps with muscle performance, energy
levels and kidney function. It also
promotes heart health and makes your skin
look more radiant and your hair stronger.

It is possible the marketing world has taken

over a product AGAIN and we are being

sold something offering not much more

that what a banana offers!!

Basically I think what a lot of research is now

saying is that it is a fad, it doesn’t really offer anything

extraordinary nutrition wise.

But hey, compared to sodas it’s a miracle drink!!

Bottom line is that if you have a

good balanced diet you certainly won’t be

needing this drink.

Coconut milk or gata, as it’s called in
Indonesia, beside its delicious taste
(I luv it), contains many other nutrients
apart from potassium. For example…

Vitamin C, selenium, iron, sodium, magnesium
and phosphorus.

It’s high in fat, yes, but as we said in
our previously, this fat is a good one,

and offers all kinds of health benefits.

It promotes bone and heart health, prevents
anemia, relaxes the muscles and nerves,
helps with joint inflammation and boosts
the immune system and metabolism.

Since coconut milk is high in fat and
contains dietary fiber it helps to balance
your blood sugar levels and gives you
a feeling of satiety for longer time.

Coconut milk is a staple food in many
tropical countries where the coconut tree
is called the “tree of life”.

No matter how you consume it remember that
this fruit offers multiple health benefits
while it adds a nice touch to your dishes.

Personally I consume it in all ways :)
If you haven’t tried it I invite you to
do so and see how you like it.

To a healthy and full of flavor day,
