🍪Cookies and Cream🍪 (Vegan/Gluten Free/Low Carb)
When I dropped the cookie balls into the coconut cream...
The world paused for a moment in wonder of the deliciousness being born!
I have been making homemade, fresh, creamy coconut mylk-ish cream almost every day since I took a severe sugar cut in my diet (as I cleanse my precious temple!) 🌟
As you may have read in my previous posts, I traded natural sugars for healthy fats and am having a LOT of fun with it! Coconuts are becoming a huge part of my delicious life nowadays!
Quick note: I'm refined sugar free anyway, so this also extends to naturally occuring sugars that are in just about everything! You really come to notice just how sugary our "regular" foods are when you start paying attention (or in my case, even closer attention!)
As any of you who have ever followed my posts would know-- I make desserts like it's my job! (OK, it kind of is if you count these posts!) 😉
That said, I feel so lost without my dates and maple syrup! (But I feel really great so I can't whine too much over this whole thing!)
I started experimenting and came into these little babies! I fell in love when I dropped them into a pool of coconut mylk and tossed in a few blueberries to create a pop of color!
So, ta-da! We now have:
