Coconut water lovers and Matcha tea lovers, we’ve got what you were waiting for! Chi has created the UK’s first 100% raw coconut water from Nam Hom young coconuts brewed with the finest Japanese matcha Tea.

You may already have heard of matcha as a superfood or at least healthy food trend. Well, there are indeed lots of benefits you can get out of these delicate tealeaves.

Therefore we would like to give you a little introduction into the world of matcha: this superfood is basically just tea and more precisely a special form of green tea, packed with lots of amazing benefits. One of those benefits are antioxidants which have a huge anti-aging effect on the human body and skin.

But how?

By fighting all the so-called free radicals in your body, which are responsible for the aging of your body’s cells. Antioxidants help generally to slow down this aging process and the result is not only clearly visible but can also be felt in a few time. Being in this way almost a wonder aliment, matcha has of course even more magical benefits like f. ex. preventing disease and lowering cholesterol and blood sugar. Honestly, those are really amazing benefits you shouldn’t miss out!

That’s why we absolutely wanted to mix the power of matcha with our Raw Coconut Water. And this led us to two magical ingredients in just one bottle with thousands of benefits for you and your body.

And last but not least we have some good news for all you coffee addicts out there, as we also launched a second new product in our Chi drink range: Raw Coconut Water with cold brew coffee!

Yummy!

So whenever you feel stressed out or completely exhausted, just take a sip of one of our new drinks and you will literally feel your body coming into balance again. #zen

The product is also gluten free, dairy free and suitable for vegetarians – a great drink to recommend to friends with intolerances.

Anyway, we think this recipe is fabulous, let’s try it!

Steps to follow:

1. Place one 330ml bottle of Chi espresso coconut milk in the fridge for a few hours to cool it.

2. Meanwhile, pour our  Chi chocolate coconut milk into ice cube trays and place it in the freezer until set.

3. When the ice has set and the Chi espresso coconut milk drink is cold enough enjoy the two as a delicious iced drink – with a kick from the coffee and a bit of a hint of chocolate from the ice cubes!

4. If you want an extra health kick, stir in 1 teaspoon of our delicious Chi coconut oil. Enjoy!
