Finding a refreshing drink without loads of fructose sugar was one of the hardest challenges we faced when we went sugar free.
Happily, this year we discovered coconut water. It’s fat free, gluten free, fructose free and cholesterol free. What’s more our favourite is also preservative free, has no artificial ingredients and are trying to decrease their carbon footprint.
Taste Nirvana Real Coconut Water is our favourite. We love their story and here’s what they have to say:
We are a proud multi-generational, family-owned operation created and run by father-son team, Jack & Kris Wattanaporn. We offer these REAL, healthy and refreshing drinks to you, exactly the way you would get them at the source.
Our coconut water is a product that varies from crop to crop because it is ALL NATURAL. We use the best young coconuts to give you the flavor you have come to love. Our young coconuts are truly tender and sometimes may yield water that contain fine traces of pulp just as Mother Nature intend.
We built our plant around an environmentally-conscious mantra. Taste Nirvana’s beverage plant is solely fueled by steam which is driven by a fast growing “farmed” tree. These trees are cut for fuel only at 10 years old, giving the trees enough time to help absorb the planet’s carbon foot print.
That’s why Taste Nirvana Real Coconut Water is part of our great Facebook Competition!

I’ve never tried coconut water but I see it everywhere.
We also hadn’t tried commercial coconut water before we went sugar free. Yet as children in the 70s our parents woud regularly buy coconuts, use a hammer and nail to create a hole for us to drink it and then break it with the hammer so we would eat the flesh. We selected Taste Nirvana because it actually is the real coconut water. That’s why their drink can change in taste between seasons because it all depends on the coconut. Many other coconut waters are varied or have sugar added to give them an all year around consistent taste. Once you’ve given it a go let us know what you think.
