OK. Let's give a little love to an under appreciated root veggie!
A little like a starchy carrot... but now you can use it to make... mock coconut?
Yes, my friends!
1. Freeze a parsnip in the freezer for a few hours, then grate it with a hand grater into a bowl.
2. Flavor with one packet of splenda and one or two drops of coconut extract.
You now have a "coconut" topping to add into your SF FF pudding, on top of vanilla yogurt (love da Dannon Light N Fit!!), or to stir in this prepared as peanut butter and eat on top of a banana...
FYCI (for your caloric information):
