Coconut water: a perfect summer drink that is good for our health

Coconut water is the clear liquid that comes out of the centre of young green coconuts, before they begin to form a white pulp.

When the coconut is ripe, it turns brown and the white pulp can then be processed into milk or coconut oil. Young coconut water comes from a coconut that matures on the tree for 5-7 months.

Green coconut water is not only a refreshing drink, especially on hot days, but also has many beneficial properties for our health and also for the beauty of our skin. Let's discover them together.
