Low Carb Trifle : Using Coconut Cream and Raspberries

Anne Aobadia, at Diet Doctor site, says, this is a "fresh and flavorful dessert with avocado and coconut". I note she also says it's "7 grams of carbs per serving", so you may wish to consider using this dessert recipe in your LCHF menu plans! However, even if you are not LCHF I'm sure you will like this idea, why not give it a try!

4 servings
1 avocado, ripe
½ banana, ripe
¾ cup (180 ml) unsweetened coconut cream*
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 pinch lime zest (only the green part)
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 – 4 oz. (100 g) raspberries, fresh or frozen
2 oz. (60 g) roasted nuts, preferably pecans

* You’ll find coconut cream next to the regular coconut milk in the grocery store. You can also buy coconut milk and discard the water. Go with the consistency that works for you.

Add flavour to the coconut and avocado batter with some cinnamon, cardamom or perhaps cocoa and coffee powder.

Hello Jan,
I am finding your blog really interesting. I am not a diabetic but I read a lot about health issues, always have, and have found this latest research about a new way of treating diabetes to be extremely interesting and positive. But the old medical steamroller rolls on. I would say more if I wrote to you by email, but can't find your email address.
Your recipes look good and delicious and would benefit anyone I think.
Thanks for visiting Orange Esmeralda and leaves such nice comments. Do come again.
Best wishes,

Debbie said...
