I’m in pancake heaven at the moment. Yesterday I bought you these lusciousMixed Berry Pancakes.
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.
The result was a lusciously smooth whipped cream textured topping that was perfect for a melt in the mouth experience.
