Whipped Coconut Cream

My youngest is the pickiest eater, so I have the hardest time giving her foods that not only fill her up, but also give her the nutrition she needs. She tends to lean towards the sweeter foods, so this coconut whipped cream sounded like the perfect addition to her diet! She loves to dip salty pretzels in it, and I love to dip berries in it! Also it’s made with  healthy fats and natural sugars! But the best part is […]

Do you think of the creamy swirl of a tasty store-bought brand that gets swiftly disturbed by a chip or carrot? For me, I automatically think of the word VERSATILITY.
