Dr Jockers Comments
This is a basic recipe for a coconut cream cup that allows you the freedom to add various flavors and anti-oxidants. Lemon and cinnamon are both great for improving circulation and allowing for deeper oxygenation through the capillary beds and into the tissues of the body. They also taste and smell great!
This is a ketogenic recipe in that it is low in carbs and the good fats (coconut and butter) help to simulate the production of ketones. Ketones help the body to reduce inflammation and prevent the development of chronic disease. They also improve fat burning, stop cravings and promote the development of lean body tissue.
A few of these will go a long way, you will be quite satisfied! Enjoy!
