I certainly am raising my hands high up in the sky! Both Matthias and I are such huge fans of coconut water, we practically have it at least weekly.

Why are we so obsessed with coconut water you might ask... well because it is so yummy and refreshing! In short, SHIOK (please don't mind me, I had to)
 But also, with the boom of technology and social media, I got exposed to a lot of articles online that have boasted the benefits coconut water and what it can do for our body etc and before I knew it, coconut water has been a huge part of my life for the past 6 months.

Introducing to you the world's leading coconut water brand, Vita Coco
Vita Coco is promised to be natural, never-ever-from-concentrate and is stacked with naturally occurring electrolytes that are effective hydrating agents that provide natural hydration to your body.
Not only is it nutritious, Vita Coco is also Fat Free, Cholesterol Free and Gluten Free so you get all the goodness without the guilt!

The Brazilian brand has been around for over 10 years since its inception in 2004 after childhood friends Mike Kirban and Ira Liran met 2 young Brazilian women who told them that they missed the coconuts from their homeland the most. Shortly after, Ira left for Brazil to visit one of the girls and learnt that the coconut hype was real, before bringing it to US a few months later.

Today, Vita Coco can be found all over the world in 30 countries - All over UK, most of Europe , Japan , China and now, SINGAPORE (hooray!)
All Vita Coco beverages are made using only fresh coconut water, unlike many other brands that sell coconut water from concentrate, which can have a significant impact on its flavour, which is why Vita Coco is so yummy (Y)

Each bottle of Vita Coco Coconut Water is contains:
- Natural Coconut Water
- Less than 1% Natural Fruit Sugar 
- Vitamin C
- More Potassium than a Banana
- 5 Essential Electrolytes for maximum hydration
- Low in calories
Now here's a short and simple recipe to one of my favourite things to have for breakfast : Traditional Rolled Overnight Oats

Traditional Rolled Overnight Oats
For  this recipe, you will need :
- A canister that can be refrigerated
- Traditional Organic Rolled Oats
- Vita Coco Coconut Water
- Any cut fruits/ nuts / garnish of your choice
- Honey (optional)

For a light and yummy version of the traditional rolled oats, I like to substitute fresh milk with coconut water. Not only is it lower in calories, it is also a guilt-free sweeter version.

Step 1: Pour in rolled oats
Step 2: Add in a desired amount of Vita Coco Coconut Water
For a more liquid consistency, add more! 
Step 3: Keep the lid on
Step 4: Refrigerate overnight!
And your overnight yummy, hearty and easy traditional rolled oats is ready to be eaten the next morning!
Simply cut up your favourite fruits / nuts and throw it in there. I like to pop in some banana, strawberries and frozen blueberries. Drizzle some honey for extra sweetness and flavour, but of course, this step is optional.

This recipe is so simple, I feel kinda embarrassed that I shared it (LOL) ! 
The Vita Coco Tetrapak retails for $1.90 (330ML) and $4.95(1Litre) 
Available at all major supermarkets, convenience stores and even Golden Village.
I'm gonna switch up my soda with this wayyy healthier alternative, so exciting!
