Carob-Coconut-Collagen Cups!

Looking to satisfy that sweet tooth without the sugar headache! These Carob-Coconut-Collagen cups are perfect! NO SUGAR added. Plus they contain a scoop of collagen and MCT oil! Both have a ton of health benefits! The beauty of using carob as opposed to chocolate is that carob is naturally sweet and still has a ton of benefits like magnesium, potassium and iron. It also contains Gallic acid, a natural antibacterial and antiviral. AND it’s caffeine free meaning it won’t keep up if you eat it late at night. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some chocolate, but it’s good to switch things up for your body’s sake. I added some @nunaturals vanilla drops to the carob for extra sweetness but you can omit.

Recipe:

  • 1 tbls @nutiva coconut oil
  • 3 tbls @sunfood organic carob powder
  • 1 tbls @sportsresearch MCT oil
  • 10 drops @nunaturals vanilla drops
  • 1 tbls shredded coconut
  • 1 tbls @nutiva coconut flour
  • 1 scoop collagen peptides
  • Couple splashes of almond milk

Melt coconut oil in a bowl, add the next three ingredients and mix until smooth. Mix the rest of ingredients in a separate bowl, using just enough almond milk to create a paste consistency. Make enough little disks with this mixture to have inside your cups. Use a muffin pan or something smaller if you want smaller cups, and pour half of the carob mixture evenly amongst the cups. Place the coconut disks on top of each of your cups, then top them with the rest of the carob. I also topped these off with whole almonds. Place in freezer for at least 25 minutes. Remove from freezer, and pop the cups out! Eat them as is, top ice cream or yogurt or smoothies, spread some nut butter on top! The options are endless 👌😍
