Okay, maybe we’re all over the weather comparisons to vastly more exotic places than our sweaty little set of British isles, but allow us this one. This summer, coconut water can move over as there’s a new cult drink in town – True Nopal – which comes from a hardy cactus, Nopal, which not only survives, but thrives, in the heat of the Arizona Sonoran desert.
So now you can rock those cutesy baby cactis on your desk at work and as your morning pick-me-up-I’m-so-goddamn-sweaty. The drink is flavoured with the Nopal’s prickly pear (you are encouraged to burst into song a la Baloo, if you wish) and has half the calories of coconut water and no added sugar meaning you can still enjoy your after work gelato with not a single second thought.
Give it a try at Tesco’s, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose – truenopal.co.uk
