  • heavy cream

    hi guys.
    tomorrow is the shopping day and i kinda want somthing tasty to get.
    i saw some people here talking about heavy cream and i wanted to know if its ok.
    i looked it up on the net and saw it had very little amount of carbs in it which is good.
    i also saw that in a can that has 250ml of it, there was almost 100g of fats and like 900 calories and i wanted to know if its ok if il eat a full can tomorrow or is it too much at once, i know fat is good for you but getting 100g of fat and 900 calories just from a "snack", that seems a bit too much.
    i would love to hear some opinions

    If you can do dairy, heavy cream is fine. Make sure you're getting just cream, though. Look at the ingredients, some brands add some nasty things. It's not the kind of thing you'd want to eat a whole carton of at once. I use it in coffee and over berries and a pint lasts for a good week or more, even if I have some every day. I've never seen in it a can, or do you mean coconut milk?

      I use heavy cream in my tea (I drink several cups a day). I usually go through 400-500ml a week. It has not slowed down my weight loss. It is not something to eat by itself, but it is good to add to berries or a hot drink or perhaps a sauce for dinner with a leaner cut of meat.

        I doubt you would be able to stomach that full amount at once. That's a full day's intake of fat in one go. Even if you could get and keep it down, I don't think I'd recommend it. Moderation is a good thing to learn.

        Heavy cream is good for coffee, mixing with berries, and making creamy sauces. It's not typically drank straight out of the container.

            Probably less than you think, because fat is so satiating, and if you whipped the whole can, that's going to be A LOT of whipped cream. Hope you have a really big mixing bowl if you're going to try that. Where are you seeing cream in a can though? I've only seen it in cartons. I'm okay with dairy, but the carageenen in just about every brand of cream sends my stomach into fits.

                When I make mousse for company, I whip one cup of heavy cream and it yields enough mousse to fill 4 large martini glasses with still a bit left over... by the time I am scraping the bottom of one martini glass I am very full. You will probably not be plowing through a whole pint in one go.

                    I always have some around. I make ice cream for the kiddos with it pretty often.

                      It's like butter, or bacon grease, olive oil etc. Use it lightly as an enhancement for fat and flavor. Not a problem if you're OK with dairy.

                      As for me - I like to chill coconut milk/cream so it becomes kinda solid and put a couple tablespoons of that over berries and sliced almonds (just enough for texture) Killer.

                        If you can find cream without the carrageenan. I had to give it up. It gives me the screaming shainghai shats.

                          I do sometimes take a slug of it right out of the carton. (I'm the only one who uses it.)

                            For eating with fruit I use double cream rather than whipped cream, because it's so thick it doesn't even need whipping. Just spoon it out.

                            Heavy (or single) cream I add to smoothies or mashed potato. Sometimes if I'm lazy I'll drink it straight, but I've never tried more than 100mL at a time. I bet I could, but it's not something I feel like doing.
