Waterfall Naturals Coconut Water & What Technically ARE Coconuts?Leave a comment
January 23, 2016 by Living Girl Living Foods
It has been a while since I have shared a product review or any review of the sorts. I adore coconut water and coconut, there are numerous articles on my site related to them. Recently it has become quite the hunt to find a raw and organic coconut water. I have been open with my readers letting them know I am completely a Harmless Harvest coconut water gal when I can’t get my hands on a fresh coconut. After noticing for a while that this product was no longer on shelves, tags and all removed, I found an article sharing that Harmless Harvest had halted production of their product.
I literally giggled with joy when I found Waterfall Naturals Coconut Water. It’s prices match what I am use to paying for Harmless Harvest. The taste is clean, sweet, refreshing, and just what I look for in a product.
The coconuts are sourced from Thailand, Harmless Harvest has theirs from here as well. Each country that grows coconuts has a different taste to theirs. Some are more sweet than others, I am extremely limited with the types of coconuts I like. I stick with the ones from Thailand. Brazil grown coconuts end up making me feel even more thirsty, and the coconut water from the Philippines that I have personally been able to find is always in a can. So, to me, it ends up tasting like can.
I have written a detailed article on the health benefits of coconuts if you are curious about this hairy drupe. Yup, a drupe! Coconuts are not technically a nut, and are not technically a fruit but are closer to being a fruit than a nut. A drupe is a fruit in which an outer fleshy part surrounds a pit of hardened endocarp with a seed inside.
I enjoy adding coconut water to fresh juices especially green juice, smoothies, or adding supplements like spirulina, green powder or multi green vitamins. Drinking coconut water straight up is a mega treat within itself! Coconut water has been helpful for those moments where I have had cramps, muscle fatigue, dehydration, headaches, if I felt like I was starting to get a bit of a cold or even if I simply needed a little energy boost.
I have mentioned this in the past but please do not forget if your coconut water is pink that does not mean it is not safe to drink. After bottling, it may turn pink
due to the interaction of it’s naturally occurring antioxidants and phenols,
plus being touched by light.
I hope my fellow coconut water heads have found this helpful! Thank you for taking the time to stop by my site. Much love ❤ and raw power 😉
