Get your juice and smoothie fix with nature’s nut

Health authorities recommend a daily intake of 6-8 servings of fruits and vegetables everyday. But the truth is, most of us fall short in fulfilling this requirement because at most, we only consume about 2-3 servings per day.

This is why juicing became an instantaneous health trend, as it allows the body to get the right concentration of fruits and veggies targeted in a day. With the wide variety of fruits and veggies available, there is no reason for one drink to be bland and boring. More so, additional ingredients such as coconut water can actually boost the health properties of your juice. It provides extra hydration due to its excellent natural source of potassium and electrolytes, plus it has anti-oxidant qualities.
