Coconut Water

Natural, Healthy, Liquid Energy

Coconut Water is packed with vitamins and minerals. Young coconuts have the most liquid and are the most flavorful. Bambu coconuts are harvested when they are still young and green from trees in Thailand. Prior to packaging & shipping, the outer green husk is removed and each coconut is individually wrapped to seal in the moisture.

Your Bambu Shoppe cuts these fresh coconuts by hand with a machete every day! This ensures you enjoy only the freshest and most nutrient-rich coconut water. Along with draining the coconut liquid daily, we hand-carve the inner coconut meat. Young Thai coconut meat is lower in fat and higher in calcium than other coconuts. It is also high in antioxidants. The fat in coconuts is medium-chain fatty acids, which are better absorbed than animal fat and has anti-inflammatory effects. The young coconut meat found in Bambu Chè becomes a great superfood and energy booster to add to your diet!
