Recipe: Grassfed Whipped Cream

“In my experience, clients that are in treatment for bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.”

Rich in CLA, Snowville Whipped Cream  is one of my favorite guiltless pleasures. I use it in my “Grassfed Creamy Yogurt Fruit Topping“, on a bowl of fresh fruit, and as a dip for bananas (I usually eat slightly green bananas, to lower the glycemic load).

In a glass bowl, beat the cream and vanilla in a chilled non-reactive bowl with a whisk or an electric mixer just until they hold a loose peak.
Add the sugar, beat until soft peaks form. Be careful not too overbeat!

Three Minute Brownie

“In my experience, clients that are in treatment for eating disorders such as bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition.

A treat that some of my patients enjoy regularly, a quick and easy brownie. Prepared in less than three minutes, it’s a dream come true during times of choco-emergency. This really satisfies a chocolate craving without any guilt. Not to mention, each brownie has 15 grams of protein!

 

 

This recipe was inspired by SmoothieGirlEatsToo. Definitely check out her blog for some delicious recipes!

I have recently discovered a line of products called Coconut Secret. In the past, we have used stevia to sweeten these brownies, but we have switched to using raw coconut crystals. It’s a completely natural sweetener that contains 17 amino acids. It’s also low glycemic and non-GMO.

This brownie is great just on it’s own, but is also great with peanut or almond butter, greek yogurt, or TruWhip….the possibilities are endless!

Three Minute Brownie

2 tablespoons peanut flour

1 tablespoon raw cocoa powder (leave this out if you want a pumpkin spice muffin)

1-2 teaspoons raw coconut crystals

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

4 tablespoons canned organic 100% pumpkin

3 tablespoons organic, pastured egg whites

cinnamon

a few drops if vanilla

Combine all the ingredients and mix til combined.

Grease a small ramekin, pour the brownie batter mixture.

Cook for 2 minutes in the microwave (might need longer depending on your microwave).
