Coconut Water

A few months ago I read Raw Food / 100 Recipes To Get The Glow and had a very brief moment of fascination, enough to drag out my dehydrator for a couple days before realizing that lasagna made from pasta is way better than lasagna made from thin sliced zucchini, and god knows raw macadamia nut cheese sounds revolting. Anyhow I remember they had a bit of an obsession with coconut water, which I’ve always liked. (Coconut water is the liquid you get when you open the "eyes" of the coconut and drain it; it is thin and almost clear. Coconut milk is made by pureeing the coconut flesh.) I saw this Harvest Bay Coconut Water at my local co-op and thought it sounded refreshing, but it doesn’t taste nearly as good as the fresh thing. I tried two containers of it and both of them had an unpleasant sourness. Not recommended.

    The only packaged coconut water that I enjoy is O.N.E. Coconut Water!

    I agree, O.N.E is good, but NAKED brand is better! I’m from india and know what a good fresh coconut should taste like.. slightly sweet, and crisp. but in the us, it’s easiest to get it packaged…the trick is also not to get the plastic bottles, but the paper-ish ones instead.
