ZOLA (zo . la)
Origin: Italian, Zulu
Meaning: piece of earth; tranquil, quiet, love, and productive.
The only time I have heard of Zola, was on Grey’s Anatomy, and she’s the daughter of the show’s titular character, ha!
Unlike my husband, I love all things coconut. I know, I know… I don’t get it either – coconut is delish!
So when Zola sent me samples of their water to try, excited does not even begin to cover it.
What makes Zola coconut water so awesome?
- Supports natural hydration
- Contains essential electrolytes: potassium, sodium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium

So, the verdict?
Açaí juice: surprisingly tasty! I liked it more than I thought I would. At first whiff it reminded me of dates/prunes. But I like that, so I wasn’t turned off going in. My husband tried it
after I forced him too and he said it was okay. Well, he and I can agree to disagree.
Coconut water with pulp: Uh, I don’t like orange juice with pulp… so I was super hesitant about this. But I liked it too! It reminded me of kombucha juice, with the chia seeds. It was refreshing and I liked the chewiness of the coconut pulp.
Coconut water without pulp: Another win in my book! Super refreshing and delicious!
There are some caveats…
The drinks come can only, so unless you planned on drinking it all in one sitting, it could potentially go to waste. However, that’s what refillable bottles are for. Or you can buy their 1 liter size which comes with a cap. But honestly, if that’s the one caveat, it’s really not that serious.
Have you ever tried coconut water or açaí juice? If so, what are your thoughts?
