Coconut Collagen Macaroons

I have taken collagen sporadically before but never on a consistent basis. Now that I am doing a 60 day collagen challenge I have been getting tons of questions! The most common question that I get is how do you get over the awful taste? I put two scoops of Vital Proteins brand collagen in my coffee in the morning and cant taste it at all! But if you babes are struggling I am here to help!

I decided to get a little sneaky and put collagen in something you would never expect! Thats right cookies! But don't worry... there is no guilt associated with these cookies! I get very sneaky when it comes to eating. I mask flavors that I don't like all of the time. And these cookies are the sneakiest little treat to date!

Coconut Collagen Macaroons-

2 mashed bananas
1 egg
1 cups shredded coconut
2 scoops of collagen
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Mash two bananas in a bowl. Mix in all other ingredients. The batter will seem wet but its fine, trust me! Scoop batter onto a cookie sheet covered in coconut oil spray. Bake for 13 minutes. This recipe makes about 14 cookies. 

If you are feeling extra sassy then add in some chocolate chips! Enjoy!

P.S- I cant wait to report back on this 60 day challenge! All the deets on collagen benefits coming soon!

Skinny Sparkling Basil Lemonade

Who doesn't love an ice cold lemonade on a hot day? Now that the sun is shining I am craving this sweet treat! Of course I made a few modifications so that I don't end up with a sugar high after two sips!

Like all of my recipes, I like to keep it simple and right to the point but with a fun twist! Insert basil here! I'm not a huge sweet fan and the addition of this basil adds a little savory twist to this fun indulgence!

Skinny Sparkling Basil Lemonade

1 juiced lemon
2 basil leaves (chopped) 
1 teaspoon organic pure maple syrup
1 Pure Lacroix
 Lots of Ice

Add ice to the glass and pour all other ingredients over the ice. Stir and top with a cute straw! Enjoy!

Go to Trader Joe's Beauty Products

Just like everyone else my obsession with Trader Joe's runs deep! I mean everything there is just so fun and convenient! Who doesn't pick up riced cauliflower and jar of cookie butter every time they go there! Haha!

One thing that I absolutely love at Trader Joe's is there beauty section... yes, their beauty section. There are so many hidden gems in this area and I feel like people really over look it! I am here to share my faves! You can thank me later.

First of all these Micellar cleansing wipes aka drunk wipes ;) are amazing. They are so gentle and really get the job done when it comes to removing your make up at night. You only need one wipe! These are my go to when I get home late and don't feel like doing the whole routine. Just grab one of these and you are good to go! They are also perfect for traveling or in your gym bag!

The facial cleansing oil is a new favorite of mine. I don't wash my face with soap. My skin is too dry and soap makes it even worse. I normally wash with jojoba oil but this my new best friend. I love the convenient pump bottle! It has coconut and argan oil in it so it leaves your skin dewy and amazing!

Oil of evening primrose has been a staple of mine for a long time. It has so many benefits... anti aging, acne prevention, great for the hair skin and nails, PMS, breast sensitivity, the list goes on! This one is a must have!

And finally the mango body butter... or really any of their body butters. They usually have fun seasonal scents. In the fall they even have a pumpkin one! I know.. so basic but don't act like you don't love it. This mango one is definitely a fave! It leaves my skin feeling so soft and I go to bed feeling like I am poolside in Maui!

Now go stock up! And don't feel bad about the cookie butter! We all do it! ;)
