I do hot yoga 3-4 times a week, and I'm thinking about joining a very reasonably priced gym (22$ a month), which is close to my house. Someone suggested tea and banana after hot yoga, which I will start doing. someone outside this forum suggested coconut water. Is that a good idea?

Coconut water is high in potasium which is the primary reason hot yogis suggest it. I find the V-8 juice has more potasium, though. *shrugs*<br><br>
I don't care for the taste of coconut water, but do like the mango/coconut water.

yup, coconut water is a great drink for after working out and sweating a lot. it replenishes electrolytes and is hydrating.</div>

Do you guys use fresh coconuts or just buy the coconut water? I want to start drinking this and I know fresh is best but it's expensive and coconuts are a pain for me to open.

I use both, young thai coconuts (the white ones with a pointy top) and sugar free canned coconut water when I can find it (not so easy to find sugar free).<br><br>
I buy the coconuts in bulk and it saves on the cost, think its 8 coconuts for $5.99-6.99. sometimes i see the individual ones for sale for almost $2 each, so i save a lot buying a case of them. i can usually use up all 8 before they start to turn, however sometimes i have to take the water out of a few and freeze it. I use ice cube trays to freeze the water and then put the cubes in bags in the freezer, its great to use the frozen water for making smoothies thick and creamy or ice cream.<br>
I have a super easy way of getting the water out of coconuts, all you need is a screwdriver or ice pick, and a hammer or mallot: use the hammer and ice pick to poke 2 holes in the top end of the coconut, make the holes a on opposite sides, then just tip the coconut upside down over a bowl or jar and let the water run out. you may need to turn it a little to get the flow started but once it starts it all comes out in about a minute.<br>
have to poke two holes to release the air so the water is not held in by suction.
