This is the perfect little pick me up snack, healthy dessert, or party food! It comes together in minutes and packs in protein from collagen and plenty of vitamins and minerals that work synergistically with the collagen to be absorbed and utilized by the body! BONUS! Additionally cacao is a sustainable energy promoting food that will provide a burst of energy without the crash! I love to add in cacao nibs for some yummy crunch too! And lastly, yogurt is full of gut supportive probiotics!
Personally I love Perfect Supplements Collagen and Acerola vitamin C powder because I know they are tested for heavy metals and contaminants as well as produced safely and effectively! (use code ABBY10 for 10% off). I also love Navitas cacao powder for the same reason. As far as yogurt goes, I love using dairy free vanilla Foragers, Culina, or GT’s cocoyo yogurt. They are all coconut based and so delicious!
Here’s the recipe!
Cacao Protein Yogurt Dip
- ½ c df vanilla yogurt, unsweetened (I like Foragers, Culina, or GT’s Cocoyo)
- 1 T raw cacao (I prefer Navitas because they test for heavy metals)
- 1 scoop Perfect Supplements Collagen Powder (use ABBY10 for 10% off)
- ¼ tsp Perfect Supplements acerola cherry vitamin C powder, optional (vitamin C enhances the absorption and production of collagen)
- Pinch of salt
- Maple syrup or honey to taste, optional
- Cacao nibs
- Sliced fruit- My favorites are oranges, strawberries, banana, raspberries, mango, and kiwi
Cut up the fruit and transfer to a plate or platter.
Combine all the yogurt, cacao, collagen, vitamin c powder, salt, and sweetener if using in a small bowl and transfer to a cute serving bowl with a spoon. Top with cacao nibs. Dip the fruit in the dip or if it’s just you eating it I like to cut up the fruit into small pieces and just add it into the yogurt and eat with a spoon!
