We all have those sweet cravings of wanting to raid the junk food section in the supermarket or devour an entire package of chocolate chip cookies. It's only human. But oftentimes a home-baked treat with lower sugar content can offer us the same (or more) satisfaction for our tastebuds and offer added health benefits like our home-made Paleo-friendly Chocolate Avocado Freezer Fudge with Collagen Peptides. A kick of extra protein, rich chocolate taste, and all-natural ingredients will leave you with a satisfied sweet tooth and much less guilt. Let's get baking!
Collagen is an all-natural superfood that accounts for more than 80% of all connective tissues in the body and 75% of our skin. It's the most abundant protein in the body. It is the building material to renew cells in all areas of the body including: hair, skin, nails, eyes, teeth, cartilage, bones, tendons, internal organs, arteries, blood vessels, and the immune system. In our Paleo Chocolate Avocado Freezer-Fudge we use Amandean's Non-GMO Premium Grass-Fed Collagen Peptides to give this treat an added health benefit.
1 ripe avocado, mashed
1/3 cup natural nut or seed butter (We love unsweetened Almond or Cachew Butter)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa)
3 scoops Amandean's Premium Grass-Fed Collagen Peptides
Additional flavor options ( to taste): mint, vanilla, almond, or coconut.
