Gone are the days of gritty whipped cream, I will forever only use this method, and I am so glad you are here so you can too!
Why Coconut is So Good for You!
Coconuts are part of the Arecaceae family of plants which is primarily palms including trees and shrubs and originated in the Indo-Malaya area . Coconut is considered to be a fruit and is full of good fats, fiber, and lots of minerals!
By choosing to make your coconut whipped cream with full-fat coconut cream and maple syrup, you are eliminating a very inflammatory ingredient: refined sugar. Refined sugar has been directly linked to chronic inflammation which can lead to other chronic symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, mood disorders, and pain. .
Refined sugars are so inflammatory because they have been highly processed and stripped of any naturally existing minerals typically found in the plant. For example, in a teaspoon of white sugar, you will find that there is absolutely nothing in it except empty carbohydrates. . Now take the pure maple syrup, what I used in this recipe, you will find trace minerals like potassium, calcium, sodium and iron. This is food in its whole form, the way it is meant to be eaten. 
Copper: Essential mineral in the formation of red blood cells and in supporting cardiovascular health and immune function .
Iron: Iron is an essential mineral that your body needs and in plants we have non-heme iron. To increase absorption, consume with foods that contain vitamin C.
Manganese: Essential mineral that plays a role in blood sugar regulation, brain and nerve function and metabolic pathways .
Magnesium: The fourth most abundant mineral in the body, it support healthy nerve functions, healthy blood pressure, and detoxification.
Phosphorous: Supports healthy teeth and bones, muscle recovery after working out, and detoxification.
Potassium: Potassium is the third most abundant mineral in your body and functions like an electrolyte (positively charged) once consumed. Electrolytes are important in their role in hydration, blood pressure, heart health, healthy nerve conduction and muscle contractions.
Selenium: Essential in thyroid health, detoxification and helps to make DNA  and pasture raised pork has higher levels than conventional.
MCT's: Medium Chain Triglycerides
A majority of the fat found in coconuts is medium-chain triglycerides or MCT's which is readily absorbed and utilized for energy by the body. Some health benefits of MCT's:
May support healthy weight by promoting the release of peptide YY and leptin, hormones the body produces that promotes fullness.
May support the body's sensitivity to insulin .
Coconut oil contains caprylic acid which is a known anti-fungal. Caprylic acid is known to support your gut health by keeping your microbiome balanced, as well as supporting your anti-inflammatory pathways. 
MCT oil can help to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and increase HDL (good) cholesterol.
Coconuts are loaded with insoluble fiber that helps to support a healthy GI tract. Insoluble fiber promotes optimized movement and elimination of waste products and acts like a sponge by absorbing toxins and eliminating them from the body.
