This one is for all the coffee lovers out there! Looking for an excuse to add double cream into your every day routine? It is as simple as this – brew your coffee any way you like and then add some double cream.  Enjoy! Hot tip: This life changing coffee hack is keto-friendly.

Curry

Everybody loves a nice, creamy curry – think butter chicken or a Thai red curry. But not everybody loves coconut cream, which is often used to create a particular flavour. Consider using double cream in place of coconut for a thicker, more fulfilling creamy texture. This simple swap works well with curries from all over the world.
