Thirsty for Coconuts

Forget Gator-Aid. Coconut water contains five essential electrolytes and more potassium than a banana.

And it's not the color of a hi-liter pen.

Okay, so my kids shuddered with disgust after gamely giving it a try. But I haven't mixed it with that most magical elixir yet -- fruit juice. My plan is to mix it in gradually throughout the summer. By late August they should be completely hydrated.
