    How about a strict low carb sauerbraten recipe?
    Might be a great way to add vinegar to the last meal of the day

    Thanks Eric

    Could you switch the lime juice for a teaspoon of Instant coffee or Cocoa powder?

    Watch out, I accidentally used cream of coconut instead of coconut cream. Didn't realize my mistake until afterwards when I got a huge blood sugar spike. Coconut Cream: 3 TB = 3 g carbs, Cream of Coconut: 3 TB = 31.5 g carbs. 😱 I'll be checking my food labels MUCH more carefully from now on. 😜

    I believe that cream of coconut has added sugar and is processed. One brand I can think of is coco lopez. Check the can to make sure your coconut cream is just that - coconut cream.

    I'm a bit cautious of fresh ginger in drinks due to some disappointments in past recipes but this was delicious and perfect for a summer morning.
    I used fresh baby spinach and fresh ginger and added some avocado and a little bit of stevia, and those lime, ginger and sweet flavours mix together perfectly and just pop! The avocado and coconut cream provided the perfect amount of creaminess and with a bit of ice, it was really refreshing. Thanks for a great recipe!
