Last night I made Chocolate Custard. Sugar Free. It was so creamy, silky smooth and had no sugar in it.
I love cream, fresh cream, always have. Dash in my coffee now and then or with a chocolate tart or apple pie back in the day before #50daysnosugar (I know only Day 18...).
So I hear most of you FREAK about CREAM and the FAT... I would prefer to eat fat then fat free or sugar free crapola foods., because it is a less processed food rich in goodness. Read the stats below if you dare. Organic cream is also good if you can purchase it (fancy pants stores mainly, sometimes Coles/Woolies).
I used 150g cream last night (150mls). This made enough for two desserts.. so for those calorie conscious peoples it wasn't that high really - add two egg yolks. Scrumptious. The breakdown was 288calories, 3g carbs, 27g fat, 8g protein, 7g calcium, 2g sugar. Yummmmy. I felt so full (fat/protein) and was very content. Was within my daily fat allowance too (yipppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee).
STATS - 242 grams of cream contains about 315 calories, out of which 250 calories come from fat content. The total fat content in cream is 27.8 grams, and this accounts for 43 percent of the recommended daily value. About 17.3 grams of the fat content is saturated fat, which is equal to 87 percent daily value. There are also 8 grams of monounsaturated fat and 1 gram of polyunsaturated fat in cream. Cream also has 99 milligrams of sodium which is 4 percent daily value, 4 grams of carbohydrates (3 percent daily value) and 7.2 grams of protein. The amount of cholesterol that is present is 90 milligrams, which is equal to 30 percent daily value, and sugar content is 0.4 gram. Cream also provides vitamins A and C, which amount to 13 percent and 1 percent respectively, as well as 1 percent daily value of iron. The calcium content in cream represents 25 percent of the recommended daily intake.
So as long as you don't guzzle it daily it is better for you than milk products & better for my tummy without the high lactose. The End.
