Less sugar, yes, but the added calories and fat I don't need.

Absolutely. Dairy fat is an excellent way of replacing calories from carbs if you're going to a low-carb/paleo diet. You can even go with straight cream. Cheese and butter are also a low sugar forms of dairy.

This article talks about it.

Yeah but why? You want to drink cream as a beverage? *gag*

I would imagine that it would be pretty good blended with protein powder.

If someone said "whip it and put it on strawberries" you wouldn't gag.

If someone said "sour it and put it on a baked potato" you wouldn't gag.

What's the difference if you just drink it?

I don't like sour cream or whipped cream either actually.

I tried drinking some half and half today- it sorta makes me want to gag, I have to admit. I think I'm gonna stick with whole milk- maybe just mix a little half and half into it.

Pity.

My grandfather used to sour cream by leaving it sit out for a few days. Grandma hated this, so he had to hide his stash of cream from her. Sounds like what some couple go through with booze! We sour our own cream, but we use vinegar. Quicker, and more hygenic.
