I was obsessed with the Zico Chocolate Coconut Water for a while. Then they stopped making it, then they started doing it with some weird protein in it, and then I just switched to Harmless Harvest Chocolate Coconut Smoothies when they came out. But, I still get a craving for that light and creamy chocolate coconut water that's different than the thick smoothie. So, I have made the best copycat version with completely organic ingredients!

If you were a fan of the original one, then you will love this recipe for homemade Chocolate Coconut Water! You just need a couple simple ingredients that you probably already have and this takes no time at all!

FAQ's

Can I use another kind of milk?

Yes, you can, but to get that true coconut water flavor, coconut milk is best!

How should I store this?

This is best stored in a glass bottle with a lid. This way you can shake it up before enjoying, just like you would with a traditional coconut water.
