Coconut Cream Pots
I put these together for a Vegan Dessert but it's full of health benefits and flavour for everyone. Coconuts are one of the best sources of lauric acid, which has both antibacterial and antiviral properties, giving us a helping hand fending off illness! It is also reported that the minerals it contains (manganese, magnesium and iron to name a few), helps blood pressure and circulation. Okay, it is a saturated fat, so all things in moderation, but this fat in coconuts is proven to contain MCT fatty acids (medium-chain triglycerides), which works towards increasing energy expenditure and helps to reduce LDLs (bad fats) and increase HDLs (good fats)...so not all bad!
The toasted, maple syrup oats and berries add some texture, flavour and further vitamins, so I would really declare this a Function Dessert.
