Like Coconut Water? Like Smoothies? Live in London? If you can answer yes to all of those questions then get yourself down to Shoreditch to the sample some healthy deliciousness at the Zico Smoothie Pop Up Bar.
On Wednesday evening I was invited along to the launch night to have a peak at the bar, as well as put together my own smoothie.
In order to help kick-start / encourage a healthy Autumn and celebrate the launch of their Pure Premium Coconut Water, Zico have set up their pop up bar in Ely’s Yard, Shoreditch, from the 2nd-5th October.
What do you have to do to get in?
All you have to do is tweet @ZICO_London using the #ZICOSmoothie to gain entry to the expereince. Once you are there the Zico smoothie experts will help guide you to making a yummy healthy smoothie from the variety of fresh ingredients and superfoods.
I always get a bit nervous making new smoothies as I don’t want them to taste horrible, so I let the barista take control of my smoothie! I went for Kale, Banana, Strawberry, Zico Coconut Water, Cacoa – it tasted gooooood!
I have often wondered why lots of running events have started handing out Coconut Water during or after a race. What I learnt at the launch is that Coconut Water has 5 different types of electrolytes; potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, phosphorus, and also has the same amount of potassium as a banana – so overall, perfect for keeping hydrated.
There is also a chance to win a Blendtec Xpress blender and a case of Zico so you can make your own delicious smoothies at home. All you have to do is use the hashtag #ZICOSmoothie to be entered into the competition.
If you get a chance to pop down to the bar, trust me, it won’t disappoint!
