Coconut Yogurt Drink

These days, my Inbox is filled with emails from sites about super foods. I even made a checklist of what foods my kids and I should be eating. Doesn't matter what super foods are out there. I just don't like to eat breakfast. My kids aren't into breakfast either.

I came up with a solution. Even though I don't have an appetite for eggs or pancakes, I have to drink something. I read that coconut water keeps you hydrate. Natural electrolytes. And I know many years ago that probiotics is good for the digestive system, restoring good germs in the guts.

By mixing yogurt and coconut water together, I've been having this breakfast drink nearly every morning. Because of the yogurt, this drink can be really sour. Adding sweetener like agave is optional. I don't add anything to my coconut yogurt drink. One time I blended leftover strawberries and kale. Very good. If you prefer something quick and good for your body morning drink, try coconut yogurt drink.

Not all coconut water are created equal. When buying coconut water, look for "coconut water" as the only ingredient listed. Nothing should be added. No flavorings or vitamins added. For yogurt, use whatever you can tolerant. My kids and I prefer sheep's milk yogurt. Again, be sure the yogurt is plain, no flavorings or preservatives added.
