    If I have an Omega 800x and a blender can I blend then strain the pulp out with the Omega? 800x?

    John you had a rainbow Aura man! You must be over filled with phytonutrients! Taste the rainbow!

    Awesome? video! I can’t wait to see you try the glass carafe dynablend. I hope it does as good a job. -Mark

    Still looking for a review of the? new Blendtec Twister Jar, though. Even though I know you love Vitamix, I’m sure you must have customers who like the Blendtec. Would love to see a review of this relatively new product.

    There is a trick to? make the nut bags a little easier. Just turn the bag inside out so the seam fabric is on the outside then when done just empty the bag out by turning it inside out again and rinse. This way the nut particles do not get stuck in between the seam fabric.

    In the UK we can’t get fresh coconuts only the dry? hard brown ones but not the fresh white ones with soft jelly meat. You can buy coconut water in the store but they taste rancid unless it’s flavoured and goes off within a day or two.

    John, perhaps this would have been a good time to try this with the VERT 400. With its stopper, it may possibly make an even better finished product. I’m looking? forward to your comparisons and juice offs with the VERT 400. Thanks for this video.

    Hi John, I have the Omega 8006 (Amazing appliance). Is it possible replace the vrt for the 8006 to make the coconut milk, using it in the same way that you used the vrt in? this video?

    Hi John. Absolutely love your channel. What’s your experience with the refrigerated shelf life of this type of coconut milk? I make almond milk in my Vitamix using this same technique, but these types of unpasteurized nut milks will often start to separate or change in flavor after a few days in the fridge. Being unpasteurized raw milks, they seem to have short shelf lives. How does this coconut milk made using the same technique fare in storage? Okay shelf? life or does it go bad quickly?

    Hi John! If you don’t the drink coconut water right away, what is the best way to store it, and how long can? it last?

    That is what I have found too. I’ve had to have the carafe replaced twice (thank goodness it was still under warranty). I have both and while there? are things I actually prefer on the Blendtec – if I had to choose one, I would choose the Vitamix.

    store in an airtight container in the fridge. Store it like you would fresh juices. (I made a video on it). I store fresh? coconut water no more than 3 days. Freshest is bestest.

    I am NOT paid to make statements. I make these statements based on my personal experience, and will soon BACK it up in a video. The blendtec is still a great blender, I wish *EVERY* product? would always improve.

  • rawfoods

    I always recommend you make enough coconut milk (or other nut milk) AS NEEDED. and drink it right after you make it, just like fresh juice. If you must store, I store for no more? than 2-3 days myself. Its probably good for up to 5 days from my experience.

    While you can do this, it will make a milk with more fiber in it. I dont recommend it, but people have used it. Try it and see if it is acceptable for you. I always use the best appliance for the job, and the vrt is the juicer that best does this task? from what I have found.

  • rawfoods

    the white coconut in this video is from Mexico. They are generally? available at Hispanic and maybe Asian Markets. I get these in LA at the wholesale produce terminal.

  • rawfoods

    Agreed. I will soon make a comparison? video comparing nut milk in the vrt400 vs vrt350. should be a fun video.
