Dr Jockers Comments
This recipe is super simple and tastes amazing! You can use this on a wide variety of ways and it has no sugar and helps us burn fat and improve brain function.
Full fat coconut milk is full of medium chain fats that help improve your metabolism and stimulate fat burning. Additionally, these fats help to reduce inflammation, balance hormones and support healthy brain function.
I recommend using stevia as your sweetener so that the recipe is ketogenic and fat burning. If you use another sweetener such as honey, maple syrup or coconut sugar it is still healthy but will not put you in fat burning mode as there would be too much sugar.
