Here’s the deal. If you don’t like coconut water now, this is the one to drink, and if you already are satisfied with you can or box or any of the other brands, don’t try this, it will spoil you, and never want to drink overly processed coconut water again.
I introduce Harmless Harvest RAW Coconut Water. It is both organic, and free of any additives, sugars, flavors, etc. Just straight up coconut water in its purest form.
This is the hardest and the easiest post to write, mostly because this is THE BEST coconut water out there, hands down, no fluff, no comparasion, just THE BEST. No matter where I am, I can open up a cold bottle, close my eyes, and taste paradise. Literally. If I had a pool and those little paper umbrellas, I would go sit in my reclining lawn chair, put the umbrella in my drink and pretend I was somewhere nice.
There aren’t a lot of ingredients to analize, or nutrition. It doesn’t come in flavors. Ok, there is a slight downside to this product. It’s a little expensive. If I already had a latte drinking habit, I would switch them out, but since I don’t, I just buy a bunch every time I go to the store. They come in 2 sizes, 8 and 16 ounce bottles. (16 only available in some areas) An 8 ounce bottle will run you $2.79 (I think is an updated number) on average, but let me assure you, it’s totally worth it. I haven’t located the illusive 16 ounce bottle, but when I do, I will update.

As you can see coconut water is high in potassium and phosphorus, making it a wonderul hydrator! No fat, low cal, and more potassium than a banana. Its really a nice little nutritional powerhouse for what you are drinking. I love them after a long workout to replenish the electrolytes in my body!
Another perk about this coconut water is that I can support the company, knowing it isn’t harming the environment. Hence the name Harmless Harvest. This is from their website:
A SUSTAINABLE, DELICIOUS & NUTRITIOUS FUTURE.
1.We develop and market outstanding functional foods and beverages that provide
the raw nutritional integrity of pioneering, sustainably wild-harvested plant products.
2.To achieve this we combine innovative scientific methods with local traditional knowledge,
from rewilding to agroforestry.
3. This safeguards threatened ecosystems and traditions by giving them mass-market appeal
with tangible economic value.
Any company that invests its time into making things better for everyone, I will wholeheartedlly support. These guys are helping cultivate nearly extinct tropical plants and creating eco awareness, among many other projects.
I for one am content paying my $3 bucks a bottle for this little treat. Is it a tad spendy? yes, but it certainly tastes good, and its much easier than hacking into a coconut.
Pros: High phosphorus and potassium, low calorie, hydrating, DELICIOUS-O, Fat free, organic, raw, company is using sustainable plants that won’t hurt the ecosystem
Cons: It’s a little pricey, and you have to go to Whole Foods or similar stores to get.
****It was brought to my attention that my pricing was off for the 8 oz bottle! Which at least now I can say my number of 3.99 was much too high! I did fund a suggested retail price of $2.79, and now purchased at Whole Foods in Las Vegas for $2.69. I will buy a case on my next venture and post what the breakdown is there. My apologies to everyone, I did not mean to misrepresent the price and hope you are now flocking to the store to buy more of this product since I just essentially put it on sale ;) ****
