  1. This recipe confuses me. I look toward your emails and site for healthy info. The recipe starts with frozen concentrate, instant pudding, artificial coloring and flavored yogurt. Why would one bother to whip real cream with so many other artificial ingredients?

    • Depending on brands used it can be more or less healthy (Find the brands you like at a whole foods market). We do a variety of recipes to suit the lifestyles of many people who use essential oils. Some simply want to add it to quick and easy recipes and others want to do everything from scratch. We want to encourage all kinds of people to use essential oils and get the benefits. You will find that many of our recipes are very healthy and made from scratch with whole foods. For some people it is baby steps to get there and make the switch.
      Adding the homemade whipped cream to a recipe such as this makes it more healthy than it would have been. Another idea is to get a plain greek yogurt and add your own essential oils! Substitutions should always be experimented with as people decide to make the switch to whole foods and healthy cooking. It can be a lot of fun to find new ways to make recipes we love taste good and be healthier!
