Because eating well can taste bloody amazing.
Because building collagen isn't boring.
Because this is what your eating habits can develop into, I swear.
Because self care.
Sweet Potato Nice Cream
Cause this is all about being nice to yourself with the added benefit of satisfying your sweet cravings.
1 cup frozen, cubed sweet potatoes
2 frozen, sliced bananas
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp almond butter
1-1½ tbsp cocoa

1 scoop collagen peptides
Almond milk (or oat or soy) as needed
For the topping (optional):
1. Add all the ingredients for the nice cream in a high-speed blender, blending until combined.
2. Add milk until desired consistency. You shouldn’t really need more than a couple of tablespoons.
3. Top with shredded coconut, sliced almonds, bee pollen, and honey.
Salted Caramel Fudge
'Cause these days, even fudge can be healthy. And full of collagen.
- 1/4 cup ghee
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup collagen powder
- 2 tbsp maple sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp maca powder
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
- 1/2 cup dessicated coconut
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
1. In a food processor, puree the first six ingredients together until smooth.
2. Next, either pulse in the shredded coconut until broken down (or) mix it in by hand to keep it in shredded form.
3. Scoop the mixture into molds or a standard loaf pan lined with parchment paper, then stick whichever container you use into the freezer to allow the fudge to set.
White Chocolate Macadamia Bliss Balls
I used to make a delicious white choc/raspberry/macadamia blondie, and this kind of makes up for me not eating that. Kind of. At least I can eat these more often! And even my kids love them.
2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup white chocolate chips, chopped
2/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup macadamia nuts chopped
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 tsp salt
Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Roll into 30 balls.
Refrigerate for up to one week or freeze.
These taste way better than they sound.
1. In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, collagen peptides, cinnamon, and sea salt.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, almond milk, almond butter, honey, melted (cooled) coconut oil, and vanilla extract.
3. Mix the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients until smooth and well combined.
4. Pour ¼ cup batter onto coconut oil greased pan over low heat.
5. Once the batter begins to bubble at the top, flip it over and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat until the batter is done. Top with fruit and a drizzle of honey.
