Raspberry Macadamia Collagen Bliss Balls
If you're looking for a simple yet delicious snack to satiate an afternoon sweet tooth, this is it. Raspberry Macadamia Collagen Bliss Balls, balls of deliciousness designed specifically with your skin in mind.
When it comes to our skin, many of us likely spend more time and money on our faces - products, facials and various treatments - than we do considering the foods we eat. So much can be achieved though a healthy diet - and ultimately, it's where good skin starts.
How are these balls skin-nourishing you ask?
Firstly, they are laden with the good fats of macadamias and coconut. Good fats are crucial to healthy skin, keeping it hydrated and supple. I've also included maca powder - an 'adaptogen' known to boost energy and balance hormones. Maca is said to be of benefit to those suffering from PMS or menopausal symptoms, and as we know, imbalanced hormones can wreak havoc on our skin.
Finally, I've included my very own Marine Collagen - a raspberry-infused collagen blend designed specifically with our skin in mind. As we get older, collagen production declines - we witness this in signs of ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines, sagging and dehydrated skin. Vitamin C-laden Kakadu plum supports healthy collagen production and the antioxidants in Davidson Plum fight free radicals, which otherwise promote ageing.
The upshot? A most delectable bliss ball with just a hint of raspberry tang.
Makes about 12 balls.
1 cup raw unsalted macadamias (can be subbed with cashews)
1 cup pitted Medjool dates
1 cup coconut flakes
1 tablespoon maca powder
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 level teaspoons raspberry flavoured Marine Collagen
Pinch of sea salt
Put all of the above ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until you get a sticky consistency. Roll into balls and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
