Vendor Focus: Harvest Bay Coconut Water

In the past few years, coconut water has become one of the most popular beverages at Wheatsville. In this town where summer can start in March and last until

November, it’s the perfect refreshment for all of those hot and humid days. Naturally high in potassium and antioxidants, many sweaty Austinites appreciated the fast rehydration provided by the coconut water; nature’s sports drink. While coconut water is delicious through a straw in a fresh young coconut, they aren’t always available or convenient. Harvest Bay, along with many other beloved brands, offer two convenient sizes of tasty coconut water that’s 100% not from concentrate with no added sugar or flavorings.

Each brand seems to have a slightly different flavor profile based on the coconuts they source and Harvest Bay’s is naturally slightly sweet tasting with a hint of toasted coconut flavor.  Recently, Harvest Bay Coconut water was verified by the NonGMO Project to be GMO free! Drink it as is or try some of their recommended drink recipes like Harvest Bay Coconut Watermelon Juice! And if you ever wondered what happens to all of those coconut husks and shells, the Harvest Bay facility actually makes pellets from them to burn for energy to operate the machinery. Very cool!.
