Supplement Review: Harvest Bay Coconut Water

Nature’s Hydration
What makes our coconut water Nature’s Hydration? It’s simple. Harvest Bay is 100% not from concentrate, all-natural coconut water from young green coconuts. That’s it. Nothing extra, like added sugar or fat.
Our coconut water is a natural isotonic beverage. Simply put, that means it helps replace fluids and salts that are lost during exercise. And, each serving has more potassium — the natural muscle builder — than a banana.
Combine the natural isotonic qualities, no added sugars and only 35 calories per serving, and you have a perfect (and perfectly natural) beverage to get you through your workout … or your workday!

Let me tell you this: This is the first Coconut Water I have ever purchased that tastes like you actually drank it straight from the coconut! I have not enjoyed the many others I have tried over the years!

This stuff is by far the best!

I like drinking a half a glass a day post workout. It claims superior hydration, not sure if that is true, but it can’t hurt 😉

If you like coconut water, or you are looking for that extra edge or if you want an all natural product that will aid you in your weight-loss journey, try this product! You will not be disappointed!

I have been having a bunch of coconut water lately including Vitacoca and this stuff is light years better! Tastes like its fresh out if the coconut! I can’t stress that enough!

**Update** June 30th 2014
I just had Zico another one of the large manufacturers and it was pretty good, I would say it was 2nd place behind Harvest Bay. Zico tasted much more natural than Vitacoca! Harvest Bay still rules! I actually found it at a new Stop & Shop which has a larger Natural Foods section then the others. However; it was much more expensive than Green Life Market! It was I believe $5.35 to Green Life’s $4.00

Recipe: Deconstructed Upside-Down Low Calorie/Fat Free/Low Carb ETB Protein Cheesecake


Ok here come my usual tweaks!

Philadelphia Fat Free Cream Cheese: calories 120, 16g protein, 8g carbs
Etb (I like cinnamon bun) calories 110, 25g protein
Truvia: calories 30, 12g carbs 0 active
Skim milk: calories 5 if that! It’s only 3tsp

Total with Truvia:
265 calories 41g protein 8g carbs

Total without Truvia:
235 calories 41g protein 8g carbs

That’s a nice dessert! I’m going to try this! Stay tuned!

I hate when people put up fake pics! It will not look anything like the pic above! It’s not cooked! Directions say mix in bowl and eat! So how would it have a brown top? It won’t! So stay tuned!

I would add Traders Joe’s Almond Meal as a crust! (Optional) 1tbsp 40 calories 4 fat 2 carb 2 protein

**Update** January 20th 2014
Ok here we go:

I decided to make 2 options:
One with Low Fat/Carb Free Farmers Cheese (pictured below)

And one with Fat Free/Low Carb Cream Cheese (pictured below)

Now for the practical application:

Cheese Cake one:

I used Friendship Farmers Cheese:


With the farmers cheese it needed the 4tsp of stevia! And 1tbsp milk
For those of you that like a thick creamy not too sugary cheesecake this is for you. Great for a low carb diet? Try 2tsp stevia for low carb diet! 6-8g carbs. 6 if you eliminate almond meal too.

110 etb + 120 fc + 5 milk + 30 Truvia + 40 almond meal

Farmer cheese total (as pictured):

305 calories 11.5g fat 10g carbs 39g Protein

Pros: notice the farmer cheese ingredients! All natural and 2 ingredients!
The container is only 7.5oz instead of 8oz so the calories are close!
Cons: 3
10 calories per serving more


Cheese cake 2:

I used fat free Philadelphia Cream Cheese:

Cons: Look at the crap in there!! Half of the crap you can’t pronounce! However; it was much creamier, so much it couldn’t hold it’s shape. It was much sweeter also and only required 2tsp Truvia. If you like a creamy sweet cheesecake this is yours!

110 etb + 40 am + 120 cc + 5 milk + 15 Truvia

Cream Cheese Total (as pictured):
290 calories, 4g fat, 43g protein 14g carbs


To have fat free eliminate the almond meal from the Cream Cheese cake!

Oh ps: if you really want a really decadent dessert add: 2tbsp of Pb2! For a healthy Peanut Butter Cheesecake. Follow directions on jar and make into peanut butter (add water)

**Update** January 24th 2014
For all you Cannoli lovers I made a Fat-Free/Low Carb/Low Calorie Chocolate Peanut Butter Ricotta Cheesecake

Same ingredients above except:
Trader Joes fat free Ricotta cheese
ETB Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein

110 etb + 135 ricotta + 5 milk + 15 Truvia

Ricotta Total:
265 calories, 0 Fat, 43g protein, 0g Carbs

Ricotta Total (as pictured):
305 calories 4g fat 45g Protein, 6g Carbs

Is cheesecake not your style? How bout a Protein Cannoli or Cheese Blintzes? Check out: Recipe: Low Carb Yummy ETB Pseudo-Pancakes!

Take the ETB Pancake and stuff with this recipe!
For blintzes: use cream or farmer cheese

For cannoli:
use ricotta and if you want to dress it up: add organic dark chocolate chips

For both omit the almond flour crust.

Eat the Bear Protein
Upon careful examination I noticed Truvia doesn’t contain any Stevia at all! A clever marketing ploy!

Today today I am picking up Xylitol from Nutrition zone really cheap!

It’s not as chemical sweet tasting as the nasty Truvia! I like it better!
