Whipped Cream is For More Than Body Art ;)

 

I'm having a conversation with my friend at her dining table.  Rapping about the yoozh - men (she's also single), work, kids, and more men.

She walks over to the fridge, grabs a can of lite whipped cream, and squirts her mouth full of it.

She explains that's her nightly snack.  

Inspired, I go home and make a fertility friendly version of it.

Easy as can be...

Ingredients:

  • 1 can full-fat coconut cream
  • 2 vanilla beans, scraped or 1 tablespoon ground vanilla beans or 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • sweetener to taste e.g. liquid stevia, xylitol, erythritol

Mix all ingredients together.  Refrigerate until firm.  Enjoy 1-2 tablespoons at a time.

Notes:

  • Use full-fat coconut cream, NOT the light version.  You want all that saturated fat to satiate you.  Otherwise, you're going to get hungry in a split second.  Or you're not going to be able to stop at 2 tablespoons.
  • Don't substitute coconut cream with heavy cream.  When you're trying to get pregnant, avoid dairy to decrease inflammation.
  • Because of how saturated fats have been demonized by pretty much everyone, they are sadly lacking in the standard American diet.  It's a critical component to healthy cells and brain development of the baby you're preparing for.
  • Stick with sweeteners as mentioned above that don't affect the blood sugar levels.    

Great snack at 3am!  Back to bed now... Ciao, Ciao.
