Put the Lime in the Coconut & Drink it All Up

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!


Mer, can you try holding the baby with a little more support? Zola does not look happy IMO.

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.

So, the verdict?

…cue drumroll…

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.

So give Zola water a try! If you go on their website, they have a store locator and an online shop!
