Toasted Coconut and Almonds
So today was the last day of ISTEP+ (or at least the first round of them) and I was looking to indulge a bit. Yes, some days I can be an emotional eater. I was looking forward to the rest of my fruit salad but with a whole lot of coconut whipped cream on top (more whipped cream and less fruit if you know what I mean). But the whipped cream alone just wasn’t going to cut it tonight. I wanted something more. So I pulled some staples from my pantry and made a delicious topping for my whipped cream that tastes oh so sinful but it’s really not that bad for you at all. I got this recipe from my friend, Z. You can find the original recipe here. It is so simple and it really takes your dessert to that next level. Enjoy!
4. Next put the almonds in the pan and toast until slightly brown – again keep a close eye on them because they also toast quickly!
5. Add the toasted almonds to the coconut flake mixture and toss.
6. Allow to cool, then store.
