Healthy, Homemade Whipped Cream

THIS is my new favorite treat/snack.

Completely natural and homemade with verrrryyy little sugar. Amazingly delicious with berries for breakfast (or dessert!) and on top of ice cream. Try it on top of The Best Chocolate Ice Cream Ever.

 

All it takes is a few ingredients and a little patience.

Dairy Version Ingredients:

2 cups organic cream

2-3 Tbsp. coconut sugar (mildly sweet) or 1 packet of stevia for a fully sugar-free version

 

Dairy-Free Version Ingredients:

1 can full fat coconut cream

2-3 Tbsp. coconut sugar (mildly sweet) or 1 packet of stevia for a fully sugar-free version

 

Method:

Place ingredients in a large mixing bowl

Use a whisk to gently whisk the cream (you want air to get in so you are looking for bubbles here).

Keep whisking (about 15 min) until the liquid becomes thick and creamy.

Feel free to take breaks as needed.

Enjoy thoroughly.

Raw Cacao-Dried Berry Superfood Cookies

Cookies with zero sugar (of any kind!) anyone? These are so delicious, uber-healthy, sugar-free, dairy-free and grain-free. With superfoods cacao and a dried berry mix of goji, blueberries and cranberries these cookies make for a truly healthy indulgence with a huge antioxidant hit. Inspired by this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • 2 heaped Tbsp. of cacao (what is cacao? great question! you can learn all about it here.)
  • 1/4 cup of dried berries (you can use any berries you like but I used a mixture of goji, blueberry, cranberry and cacao nibs and P.S. because cacao and berries both have such a huge antioxidant count when combined it is pretty much the most antioxidants you can get at one time = bonus)
  • 2 packets Stevia or I used 3 packets Natvia (Natvia uses the top of the stevia plant- it isn’t as strong as stevia and has more of a “real” sugar taste and texture, but neither have any actual sugar, glucose or fructose.)
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (for yumminess and blood sugar stabilization)
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin coconut oil (remember that coconut oil is the only oil that turns straight into energy instead of fat although it is, of course, a healthy one and our body does indeed need these healthy fats)

Method:

  • Combine the shredded coconut, cacao, dried berries (plus cacao nibs if you like), stevia/natvia and cinnamon in a bowl and mix
  • Now add in the coconut oil (melt in a pan if not already melted) and add to the rest of the ingredients
  • Now put parchment paper onto a baking tray and scoop “dough” into balls and place on tray (the “dough” will be loose and hard to form, but trust me they will be so yummy!)
  • Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight
  • They are best served straight out of the fridge- they are cold, sweet and delicious

Expect a burst of energy from these cookies and definitely not a ride on an emotional rollercoaster which you may have had experience from in the past.

Enjoy!
