Thai CoconutLos Angeles, CaliforniaIn Thailand, coconut palms are fondly referred to as the “Trees of Heaven” or “Trees of Life.” Coconut palms and coconuts are highly integrated into spiritual beliefs, celebrations and frequently savored in recipes. As coconuts reach their prime, they are often harvested for the water inside. This fresh, unadulterated Thai beverage has become a worldwide sensation as Amy & Brian’s Coconut Juice.

Thai Treasures

Known to be the sweetest and most flavorful of coconuts (compared to those grown in Brazil or Mexico), Thai coconuts are treasured by coconut connoisseurs worldwide. Amy & Brian know a good thing when they see it, and their Coconut Juice is always made with water from Thai coconuts, packaged in its pure, nutrient-dense state—never from concentrate and without additional sugar or artificial flavors.

Juice vs. Water

In Thailand, people call coconut water “Nam Ma Phrao.” The Thai word “nam” is used to describe both juice and water, resulting in Amy & Brian’s characteristically branded “Coconut Juice.” Most brands source their coconuts from Spanish- or Portuguese-speaking countries, such as Mexico or Brazil, where the beverage is referred as “agua de coco,” which translates to “coconut water” in English.

The varied sources allow for a great number of coconut juices/waters on the market, but Amy & Brian’s Coconut Juice is consistently ranked as a favorite coconut water brand in taste tests and is featured on Amazon’s “Coconut Water Best Seller” list. Amy & Brian’s Coconut Juice continues to meet the growing demand for their product and remain steadfast against their competition year after year.

Preservation Without the Chemicals

Amy & Brian’s Coconut Juice is pesticide-free and is never sprayed with formaldehyde, a chemical used for preservation. The juice is extracted in Thailand near the farms where the coconuts are harvested, allowing every part of the coconut to be utilized.

After the juice is extracted, the coconut has a variety of uses. The pulp can be turned into milk and the fiber of the husk can be made into traditional fabrics. Amy & Brian revere this plant as a Thai staple product and along with offering the juice abroad, ensure the benefits of the coconut are maintained in their native region.

Traditional Recipes

Amy & Brian’s Coconut Juice is enjoyed not only as the perfect refreshing beverage, but also in these traditional Thai recipes:

  • Coconut Lime Soup: Melt 2 tbsp butter over medium heat in a saucepan. Saute 1 small chopped onion for 4 minutes before adding 3 cups coconut juice, 1/4 cup peanut butter, and 2 tbsp chicken bouillon. Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro and 2 tbsp lime juice before portioning into 5 bowls.
  • Black Rice Pudding: Bring 2 cups Coconut Juice, 1 cup Thai black rice, and 1 cup light cream to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes. Toast ¼ cup of unsweetened coconut flakes on a baking sheet for 5 minutes at 350 degrees F. Add 3 tbsp brown sugar to rice and simmer for a few minutes longer, until pudding reaches desired consistency. Top each serving with toasted coconut.
