Cream is bad for you, right? Not necessarily, in fact, unlike dairy fat, coconut cream contains no cholesterol and has a unique compound called lauric which has been shown to reduce tumor growth. Read more about the healthy coconut
With that in mind, we thought you might like to try using coconut cream this Christmas, maybe on your Pavlova, or even better, on your fruit salad!
- 400g Coconut cream
- 2 Chopped and frozen bananas
- A pinch of stevia
- 200g Strawberries (a small punnet)
- 1/2 Pineapple (or sliced orange)
- 1/2 Rockmelon
- Handful of blueberries
Cinnamon to sprinkle
You will need to chop and freeze the bananas the night before so they go hard and are perfect for this recipe. Pour the coconut cream into a blender (our Ladyship blender is perfect) and place the chopped banana on top. Add a pinch of stevia (or add one tablet) and blend until smooth.
Add chopped fruit to serving bowls and spoon over the whipped coconut cream. Sprinkle with blueberries and cinnamon.
Now you can eat whipped cream guilt-free! Enjoy!
