So my amazing Coconut Sweet Cream Cake was a hit with the inlaws and is now one of my go to cake for parties.  The cake is moist yet allows the nutty flavor to come through.  It's not overtly sweet nor does it leave a bad aftertaste as do some cakes where after devouring a generous portion you just want to plop down on a couch and take a nap.  





The swap of regular butter with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® spread was enlightening.  Although I always want to change my diet habits, I hesitate because I don't want to miss out on flavor.  Who really wants to eat food with no taste right?  I learned that I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® is made with 70% less saturated fat (the bad fat) and has 30% fewer calories than butter with the same great taste of butter.  

Even Kenzie who knows her butter as she wants to put it on everything she eats, couldn't taste the difference.  This is a good thing because I want her to have good health and eating habits.  I should have hopped on Hubs' bandwagon a long time ago and used spreads for good health without sacrificing good taste.       





   

The I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® tubs are convenient when using the spread as a spread on toast, breads, pancakes (yum!), waffles, steak and more.  The sticks are perfect for baking as the measurements are indicated on the wrapper.  

Check out your local Walmart's butter section to pick up Unilever spreads for your next cooking or baking adventure.  You will be surprised at how convenient it is to shop there for all your ingredients, especially at a low price.  What are some recipes that you would try with a spread?    






It's funny how you start noticing labels and brands once you are aware.  I see the unique Unilever logo everywhere now - especially on products that I have been using in my household without realizing they were part of the Unilever family.  


Cooking your favorite recipes using Unilever buttery spreads is a deliciously smart move. With 0g trans fats per serving, less saturated fat and fewer calories than butter, cholesterol-free spreads are a better option.

  6. We have a big tub in our fridge right now. I also keep sticks of butter which we love on bread ~ but I cook with both. I have never had a bad result cooking with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. Never realized that it was a Unilever brand.

  12. I usually just use margarine rather than butter. But, I think having the more buttery flavor would be great! :)I should try it!
