Whipped cream is a staple for many desserts and drinks, but it has little to no nutritional value if you're purchasing the kind in a spray can or tupperware.  Here is a simple, relatively low-glycemic and more nutritionally dense version, using coconut cream as the base.

Coconut cream can be found in full cans in places like Trader Joe's, but if you can't find it already separated, it is also in cans of full-fat coconut milk.  One can of coconut milk will have about 1/4-1/3 cup of coconut cream.
