Can I use almond milk instead of coconut water?

The recipe calls for coconut water which is sometimes known to be high in sugar. This recipe states that it has low glycemic index ingredients. Is there coconut water that you can recommend that is low or has no sugar?

I added blackberries and it tastes great!
Adding a splash of lemon juice cuts down the bitter taste of the greens too.

This was disappointing. The taste of spinach was very strong, perhaps because I used frozen spinach and it was much more densely packed than fresh leaves would have been.
yeah, frozen spinach tastes strong. baby spinach is mild. I get mine at Costco warehouse store, they have giant bags of "adult" spinach and even that is stronger than the baby spinach. dandelion greens are also pretty mild if you can find some. I find them in the grocery store but sometimes they have them, sometimes they don't then I have to drive across town to the health market.
