When I was a kid, summertime barbecues were always finished off with a casserole dish layered with berry Jello and Cool Whip. If only the neighborhood moms had known how they were sabotaging our health…
Time to give our dessert of choice back then a healthy 21st-century makeover! Instead of potentially inflammatory dairy or disgusting soy-based substitutes, this version features delicious cultured coconut milk, found in the yogurt aisle.
The probiotic cultures in the coconut milk are great for your gut health, while the extra boost of MCT oils helps out your immune system, skin, and more. (Curious? Check out this quick read about 5 Ways Coconut Oil Makes You Look And Feel Great.)
And you don’t need artificial anything! Add in superfood strawberries, and it’s an altogether irresistible dessert with no guilt, carb crashes, or brain fog involved.
