I popped down to do a little catch up with the Kings of Coconuts … wow!, it was five years ago, I heard about these Fresh Young Coconuts from the Far East arriving in Cyprus, so I had to find out more … it turned out that two really good friends of mine Kyri and Costas had launched what I believed would become a huge success in Cyprus, Fresh Young Coconuts with a powerful, refreshingly natural healthy interior and they’ve proved me right because many people love their coconuts and now there’s lots more to tell you about …
Low in fat
Their coconuts are full of raw unpasteurised fresh coconut juice, and tasty young coconut flesh, packed with electrolytes, containing as much potassium as two bananas, with zero cholesterol, almost no calories, and extremely low in fat, a perfect part of any healthy diet, that will also help you build your immune system.
They’ll even help you to keep hydrated and refreshed from the strong Cyprus sun and guess what? …
They’re also a great hangover cure, so they should sell loads in Cyprus 😉
Better than a sports drink, they’ll boost your energy levels and help replenish lost fluids during health and fitness workouts, I’m led to believe they’re becoming very popular in gyms throughout the UK, Europe and now Cyprus, because they’re a perfect natural energy boost after a hard workout!
Cocktails & Smoothies
Costas, Kyriacos and the awesome crew have added their own unique cocktails and Smoothies to the menu, using the coconut milk to blend the cocktail and serving it in the Coconut Shell, with paper straws that look like bamboo, and wooden spoons, brilliant! and totally ecological too!
Kings of Coconuts make life easy for Mixologists, freshly squeezing fresh Pineapple, Strawberries, Mango and of course Coconut milk, supplying them in one litre bottles to help them make truly exotic cocktails, or amazing fruity smoothies … oh, and you must try some of their amazing ‘in-the-shell’ cocktails in coconuts, watermelons, honeydew melons and pineapples …
Last year they introduced completely unique Ice Creams made from exotic fruits, my fav the Dragon Fruit. It’s sort of a cross between a Kiwi and a Pear, served in a coconut shell and tastes delicious!
I love to see cool ideas in Cyprus, and i think this one is awesome … I Gotta say a big well done to Kyriacos and Costa in their new venture, and for bringing a healthier lifestyle to Cyprus … I’m a regular customer, and love coconut and they’re really tasty, refreshing, and very healthy! … I suppose their tag line says it all … “they are simply refreshing and refreshingly simple” !
When I asked Costas why they brought these Fresh Young Coconuts to Cyprus, he said coz they want the world to know about the health benefits of this wonderful fruit, aka a nut and sometimes a seed, but always very healthy. They are adding new outlets regularly, so keep an eye open for them. If you want to jump on the Kings of Coconuts revolution, give them a call and tell them What’s On said “I got a luvverly bunch of coconuts” and You might get a nice surprise? Hmm 😉
The guys have become totally ecological, now adding paper straws and wooden spoons to their ever growing list of products available to hotels, pubs, bars, cafes, restaurants, gyms, spas and anyone who wants to help the world become more healthy!
I’m loving the new Coco Bar they’ve recently opened at Polyxenia Beach Hotel in Pernera … cool use of comfy seating covered by huge sails, stretched between the palm trees and lovely lighting … pop down for some pure chill out with fresh coconuts and cocktails, fruit platters and lots of exotic flavours to share with your friends, cooled to your liking …
