Two Step Paleo Dessert

Despite being Paleo and ketogenic, there is something comforting about having a treat after dinner. Thanks to friend and fellow strong lady Andrea for this: coconut milk and blueberries.

First, you want to refrigerate the coconut milk. It will make the milk thicken up and have a more yogurt-like consistency. Second, you want Thai Kitchen brand coconut milk. I got Chaokoh brand at first, thinking "what can it matter?" For whatever reason, I would assume the fat content, it just doesn't thicken up as nicely.

Blueberries are generally a safe treat for the ketogenic diet, they are a lower sugar fruit, and like most dark berries, are chock full of vitamins and antioxidants/phytochemicals.


  1. Here is an awesome way to combine those two ingredients. Refrigerate a full unopened can of full fat coconut milk for 24 hours. take off the lid and scoop the thick fat off the top several inches, leaving the watery stuff behind (good for a glutathione powder smoothie) . Place this in a kitchen aid mixer or anything that you would whip cream in. Whip on high until thickened like whipped cream. You can add some vanilla if you like...
    top the berries. with the cream and sprinkle with unsweetened cacao powder or cinnamon.......delish

    1. Vanilla and cacao! That sounds wonderful! Thanks!

      I'd also like to know more about the glutathione powder smoothie, as I'm supposed to add glutathione supplementation to my regime. :)
