Coconut, Collagen Balls
Preparation Time: 40 minutes
- 1/2 cup Coconut Cream Concentrate
- 1/4 cup grass-fed collagen peptides
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, optional
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- salt to taste
If the Coconut Cream Concentrate is solid, warm it by placing the jar in a pan of hot water. After 5 minutes, when the cream melts, stir it gently until it is uniformly smooth. Once creamy, measure 1/2 cup of Coconut Cream Concentrate into a bowl. Add the collagen peptide powder, honey, vanilla extract, coconut oil, and salt. Also add the cocoa powder, if using.
Mix very well. When the mixture is uniform, shape into bite-size balls and keep them on a baking tray or a plate. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Alternatively, the mixture can be patted into a baking pan. Score it using a knife to make bite-size squares and keep the pan in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Enjoy as a hard candy or, if desired, let them soften slightly at room temperature before eating.
Store in the refrigerator.
