Today I have to share the ultimate healthy Maple and Macadamia whipped cream.  It’s perfect on pancakes, waffles, grilled banana loaf, as a cupcake frosting or eaten straight from the bowl.

Perhaps you shouldn’t really eat it straight from the bowl… but I have to admit, I did!!

I had trouble stopping myself from eating it all before is was photographed it was THAT good.  Better yet, the recipe uses Flora Pro-activ which has been proven to reduce cholesterol.

Just 25gm of Flora Pro-active per day can lower cholesterol by 10% over a three week period.  With this in mind I decided this was a treat I could afford to indulge in.

I was asked to try Flora Pro-activ so I decided to put the spread to the ultimate test. I used it as the main, central ingredient for this luscious pancake topping.

It’s good to know that not everything in life that tastes good is bad for you.  I always include a healthy serve of fruit with pancakes to add some more fibre, vitamins and minerals.
