Milk vs Water – What’s the difference?
Coconut water is confused with coconut milk all the time! It’s pretty easy to do! But there are some key differences between the two products. Coconut water is found inside the cavity of the coconut, while coconut milk is made from the white pulp of the fruit. So, there’s your main difference! But the list doesn’t quite stop there!
Coconut milk is much higher in fats in calories. It’s so smooth and creamy that it’s used in recipes such as smoothies, soups and curries. While coconut water on the other hand, contains sodium and potassium, making it the ideal beverage to help you hydrate after exercising. In fact, coconut water can help replenish body fluids even better than some sports drinks, and some even argue plain water itself! It’s even been dubbed ‘Nature’s Gatorade’!
Now that’s a miracle in a bottle for you!
