The quickest way to heaven is surely a cup of Terbodore French Vanilla coffee. WOW, I am blown away – I have a new addiction!
Pop some in a plunger while heating some milk in a cup. Pour this freshly brewed gift from the gods onto the hot milk and add xylitol (no, no, no – sugar is sooo last year) and a dash of cream. Delectable.
But I digress. I was going to write about Banting breakfasts on a Sunday. The rest of the week is very standardised – eggs and bacon or nothing – but on a Sunday, after a nice long run on the country roads, I like to concoct something different.
Here is today’s concoction:
Put 3 BIG tablespoons of double cream Greek yoghurt into a blender. Add a heaped teaspoon of macadamia nut butter, a teaspoon of xylitol, a teaspoon of honey, a tablespoon of desiccated coconut and a VERY generous dollop of cream. Then add a handful of almonds and pecan nuts. Blend. It comes out thick – you eat it with a spoon like half melted ice cream and it is delicious. Almost too good to be true this Banting thing…. If you are super-strict with your carbs, leave out the honey and add another teaspoon of xylitol, but I reckon after a good run (and a 60 km week under the belt) I can afford to splurge on the teaspoon of honey – you can’t beat it for flavour.
