There is such a huge variety of different porridge or yoghurt toppings on the market. But if you start reading all the ingredients in it, you get scared. Almost everything is sweetened and has thousand ingredients, you don’t even have an idea for what purpose. As I recently became a fan of “I Quit Sugar” idea and want to go, for another 5 weeks, sugar free, I thought I would make my own topping. In this period you shouldn’t use any sweetener nor eat fruits and berries. So that I don’t have to waive my morning yoghurt intake, I decided to make my own coconut topping. You would be surprised how much sweetness you can achieve with help of spices.
This coconut topping is made from many different spices. I put some cardamom and cinnamon for sweetness and some allspice together with ginger for nice spiciness. These spices go so well together with coconut, you would not want to miss it, once you have tried it.
This topping is delicious with yoghurt or porridge. But it is so tasty that you might not avoid wanting it to eat as a snack as well.
