Mmm, coconut water. Super-hydrating! All natural! And Potassium-rich! With this hot, humid weather in Austin, I’ve been obsessed with Mother Nature’s tropical cocktail. I love the local juice shops in Austin but sometimes I just want cold coconut water straight from a coconut! None of that stuff from concentrate, I’m talking about hacking the top off of a real young coconut.
Plus, coconut water is super refreshing and hydrating by replenishing electrolytes and lost fluids equal to that of a sports drink (all-natural with no chemicals). Here’s where you can find fresh coconuts in Austin.
Juiceland squeezes their juices/smoothies daily from 90% organic fruits and vegetables. You can also order a young Thai coconut with a straw there!

My favorite spot for a fresh coconut in Austin! Everything about Juju Juice makes me super happy. The cute little walk-up stand next to Cenote, the name, and the owner, Iba. Juju is 100% vegan and they make their juices, nut milks and nut butters handmade from scratch. I asked Iba to make me something extra special the other day, and he added the Kalesy (coconut water, coconut butter, kale, banana, pineapple) into my coconut! This little guy made my day!
