Mine is protein ice cream - made in my ice cream maker.

My favourite flavour is chocolate peanut butter...

chocolate protein powder blended with milk or chocolate soy milk, mixed with melted organic peanut butter... mmmm, so good!

Mmmm those all sound good!

Can someone please educate me about coconut oil. I've seen many recipes that use coconut oil and I'm confused as it used to be considered one of the worst fats out there. What has changed? Is it only considered good when there are no carbs being consumed too?

It's an incredibly healthy fat. There's been a lot of misinformation in the past because of the fact that it's a medium chain fatty acid and is a saturated fat.

However it is incredibly healing, contains both caprylic and lauric acid (only otherwise found in breastmilk!) and is also thermogenic. It raises your basal body temp and is great for the thyroid, as well as fighting yeast and healing the gut. And because it's thermogenic it requires the body to work harder to burn it resulting in a higher expenditure of calories.

People have vilified MCFA across the board without distinguishing between the goodies and the baddies....similarly to saturated fats, which it also is!

Another issue is that the big study that was done using CO did so using hydrogenated coconut oil. The good stuff (extra virgin coconut oil) is NOT hydrogenated. The study has no relevance.

My two cents!

Thanks E! I did not know all that, but just thought it was good for you. I feed it to DD in a number of things and think it has realt benefited her and helped with weight gain.

yes, it's a great equalizer for people with damaged guts. If you aren't absorbing food because of villi damage or bacterial imbalance it can help heal that and allow gain. If you are having the opposite problem it can boost your thyroid and normalize bacteria and help you lose. I was taking it with my dd (both doing a large amount-more than 3 tbs. a day for me and 2 tbs for her) when we were diagnosed with celiac disease 7 years ago. I lost on it and she gained!
