Heads up, Hong Kong – healthy just got healthier. Vita Coco is pleased to announce a unique collaboration with Grassroots Pantry to bring Hong Kong a whole new tropical take on nutritional drinks. An exclusive menu of coconut water-based concoctions aimed at keeping Hong Kong healthy and hydrated will be available at Hollywood Road’s Grassroots Pantry for a limited time, starting 27 October.
“I’ve always been a fan of Grassroots Pantry, I love their philosophy and passion to nurture balanced, healthy eating with sustainable, organic and nutrient-rich food. At Vita Coco, we value nature’s gifts and coconut water’s natural health benefits so we’re excited to partner with Grassroots to bring deliciously healthy smoothies and drinks to those in Hong Kong,” says Patrick Wang, Vita Coco regional marketing director.
With a superhero roundup of ingredients like chia seeds, pink sea salt, parsley, and coconut water, the exclusive menu offers four delicious drinks carefully formulated to do it all: energize, relax, detox and repair. Each recipe was carefully crafted by Grassroots Pantry Executive Chef and Managing Director Peggy Chan to be both delicious and nutrient-dense.
“It is our mission to make Hong Kong a healthier place by educating those in Hong Kong about wellness and offering them healthy, nutritious food choices. Vita Coco is the best-tasting brand of coconut water we’ve tried, and it’s completely natural, which is very important to us. We’re excited to share our knowledge with Hong Kong about the importance of staying healthy and hydrated with natural ingredients” says Peggy.
Looking for a pick me up? Try the Wide a Wake (HKD38), a delicious juice made from Vita Coco, fresh lime, chia seeds and pink Himalayan sea salt. Chia seeds are the tiny heroes of the plant world, packed with protein and omega-3s. With each sip, the double-electrolyte punch of coconut water and sea salt work together to keep your body hydrated and give your skin that beach babe glow.
For the morning after one of those late nights in LKF, Grassroots Pantry pairs Vita Coco with nature’s cleansing champions in theEmerald Elixir (HKD58), a vibrant green juice made up of celery, kale, parsley, fennel and green apple. Great for detoxing and for absorbing daily essential goodness, the Emerald Elixir delivers on nutrition and flavour.
What better way to get a beach body than with the Beach Body (HKD60). This protein packed smoothie blends Vita Coco ice cubes (the coolest idea since fresh coconuts) with sunflower seeds, superfood hemp seeds and Chaga powder for extra antioxidants, sweetened with dates and creamy almond butter for a decadent sip that gets straight to work rehydrating and building those hard-earned muscles after a trip to the gym.
Like throwing on a knit sweater and talking a walk on the beach, the Cozy Coconut (HKD58) is Grassroots Pantry’s answer to staying both warm and healthy during the chillier fall and winter months. Vita Coco and freshly juiced apples come together with low-glycemic coconut sugar, anti-inflammatory cinnamon and hearty kefir grains for a sweet sip with even sweeter health benefits.
