Fats are great, but sometimes we overuse certain kinds of fats that our bodies don’t digest as well. Examples of fats that can be abused are cream cheese, nuts, heavy whipping cream, and cheese. There’s nothing wrong with those fats per se, but our bodies just don’t burn them as efficiently as they burn fats from coconut oil, eggs, butter, and meat. On the Trim Healthy Mama plan, recipes that use these efficient fats without the heavier fats and common sources of trace carbs (such as Greek yogurt and cottage cheese) are called Deep S recipes. When I was putting my cookbook together, I needed a category for my Deep S-style recipes, so I labeled them “Foundation Fats,” hence the name of the two recipes I posted today. (Click here to see my Foundational Frozen Custard recipe.)
I’ve been trying to focus on foundation fats recently, and my body loves them! I can tell that when I focus on Deep S rather than Heavy S foods, my metabolism kicks into gear. There don’t seem to be very many Deep S recipe options in the blogosphere, so I’ve been trying to fill the void by creating some new ones. I recently posted a Superfood Brownie Recipe that fits into the Deep S category, so if you pair those with my Foundational Frozen Custard and this peanut butter topping, you can have a brownie sundae – totally Deep S!
You definitely don’t need to keep this peanut butter topping just for Deep S, though. Feel free to enjoy it with any of my S or Fuel Pull ice cream recipes. (Click here for an index of my ice cream recipes.) There’s a peanut butter topping in my upcoming cookbook that uses natural peanut butter instead of defatted peanut flour in case you don’t have peanut flour. Up to one tablespoon of defatted peanut flour can be used in a THM: Deep S setting, and it’s a great way to get peanut butter flavor without a lot of the excess calories of peanut butter.
This yummy peanut butter topping is thick and spoonable, but you can add more unsweetened almond milk to make a thinner sauce.
