I remember my first coconut shake.

I was trying to escape the scorching heat and was seeking shelter at one of the shopping malls.

Desperate for a quick refreshing drink, I eyed the snaking queues at Mr. Coconut.

However, after seeing that a cup would cost as much as my lunch, my urge to quench my thirst went away.

So imagine my glee when I found out that I could redeem a free cup during my birthday month (and it was INDEED my birthday month!).

I promptly joined the queue and ordered myself the largest coconut shake available.

And what can I say…

After taking a sip, I completely understand the hype around it.

Coconut Shakes: The New Bubble Tea in Singapore?

Coconut shakes have been gaining popularity these days.

There has been a huge increase in the number of outlets, and long queues are also frequently spotted at these stores.

In a hot and humid country like Singapore, it is no surprise that a refreshing cup of coconut drink would win the hearts of Singaporeans.

With a bulk of us being addicted to bubble tea, these coconut drinks also provide a healthier alternative, reducing the level of guilt while getting the same level of shiok from our drinks.

Are Coconut Shakes Really Healthier Though?

Bubble teas are widely known to be laden with sugar and are high in calories (beloved pearls, I’m looking at ya).

In another report by Men’s Health, pearls can even cause kidney damage, due to the level of maleic acid in the product.

Coconut shakes are usually made with coconut water, which is lower in sugar and calories and great in rehydration and even kidney cleansing.

It is also a great way to add potassium to diets, which is usually derived from fruits and vegetables.

That being said, with the number of toppings that are available for these coconut shakes, such as ice cream, chocolate, and oreo bits, such a drink can easily become a calorie-heavy one as well.

So do take note of your sugar levels and toppings if you’re health-conscious and looking to get one of this!

Would You Join the Coconut Hype?

Source: Gfycat

Given its current popularity, would you join in the queues and grab one to rejuvenate your soul?

For me, even though I’ve tasted its goodness, it’s probably not something I can afford to drink every other day.

I mean… one cup can easily cost more than my cai png leh…

That being said, it would definitely be an occasional treat for me, while I save the rest of the money as part of my millionaire dream.

But I’ll make sure to grab that free birthday drink, or even buy it at a discount on Shopee.

And if you’re big on discounts… why not sign up for a free Seedly account so that you won’t miss out on exclusive deals and promotions? 😉
