Love coconut? We do, too. Coconut gives a chewy, flakey texture to desserts and has a sublime taste. Despite the myths associated with fatty coconut oil, certain coconut creamers are incredibly fat-free and are a healthy alternative to classic creamers, such as heavy cream.
Heavy cream is used in almost every dessert. Did you know that heavy cream is 95% fat and has 51 calories per 1 tablespoon? (Yikes!!) In comparison, Original So Delicious™ Coconut Milk Creamer has no fat and has only 10 calories per 1 tablespoon. On top of that, it is gluten-free, dairy-free, and has organic ingredients.
Satisfy your sweet tooth with these simple coconut desert ideas:
Coco-Creamy Smoothies: If you’re looking to make vegan smoothies with a tropical twist, this coconut blast will flavor and sweeten your creations. When you’re craving arich milkshake, go for a smoothie instead. They are vitamin-packed, low-fat drinks for a hot summer day. Be creative; select your fruits for the shake (bananas, mangos, kiwis, guava, etc.). Mix in a few tablespoons of the coconut creamer and add ice. Don’t forget to add Live Rite whey protein powder: it helps active women get the protein they desperately need in the morning or after a workout. The Live Rite protein powder is found at our gyms, and it comes in two delicious flavors: vanilla and chocolate.
Exotic Fruits covered in Coconut Creamer: This silky, rich creamer can be used on top of your favorite fruit salad for a mildly sweet taste. It’s simple and delightful! For a tropical taste, use a few slices of a ripe mango, pineapple, and/or papaya and drizzle with 1 or 2 tablespoons of coconut creamer for a light snack. You can also sprinkle chopped walnuts, pistachios, or flax seeds on top just to increase the nutritional value.
So Delicious™ Coconut Creamers come in three flavors: Vanilla, Hazelnut, and Original coconut. The original has the least amount sugar (1 g) and fewest calories (10 cal). The flavored ones have 4 grams of sugar and 20 calories per serving. And, of course, they are dairy-free.
Give them a try and let us know what you think. We’d love to hear your recipes!
