Sugar-free Strawberry Pink Drink (with Violet Drink Variation)

We’re pushing the peak of summer heat, which means refreshing beverages are an all day, every day requirement. This strawberry pink drink is for those times you want something chilled, creamy, and softly sweet.

We make ours with collagen, which is something your body needs anyway. No shame in getting hooked on this pink drink, because once the effects of collagen kick in, you may see changes in your skin, hair, and nails that keep you going back for more.

It’s just as easy to make as it is refreshing! If you want to make a berry violet drink instead, use blackberries instead of strawberries and hibiscus tea instead of water.

Enjoy!

Serves: 1

Time in the kitchen: 8 minutes

Ingredients

¾ c coconut or almond milk
¾ c + 2 Tbsp. water
½ c chopped strawberries + ¼ c sliced strawberries

Keto Angel Food Cake

For whatever reason, angel food cake seems to make its yearly debut during that time when warmer weather breaks. Is it the toppings – fresh berries, or a perfectly ripe peach? Is it those first rays of sunshine after a cold winter that make you want something pillowy soft and sweet? There could be a hundred reasons why angel food cake is a slice of spring on a plate. Angel food cake may be something you considered a cheat, until now. Traditional angel food cake recipes call for a lot of sugar – since there’s no frosting, the cake has to be sweet on its own. This keto angel food cake recipe gives you all of the light, airy sweetness without the aftermath that comes with a sugary dessert. And, it’s surprisingly easy to make. Proper whisking of the egg whites can be intimidating, but you won’t mess it up. The key is to stop whisking when you get “soft peaks.” You’ll know you’re there when you can make small rolling hills in your egg white mixture by slowly lifting your whisk out of the bowl. Here’s how to do it. Keto Angel Food Cake Recipe Serves: 6 Time in the kitchen: 25 minutes, including 15 minutes bake time Ingredients 1/2 cup almond flour 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp. Lakanto powdered monkfruit 2:1 sweetener 3 Tbsp. coconut flour pinch of salt 9 large egg whites 1 tsp. vanilla extract 3/4 tsp. cream of tartar coconut whipped cream, chopped dark chocolate, or fresh berries (optional) Directions Prior to whisking up the egg whites, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a 8” cake pan with parchment paper. Mix the almond flour, granulated monk fruit sweetener, coconut flour and a pinch of salt in a small bowl and set aside. Crack the egg whites in a clean, dry mixing bowl. Whisk vigorously with a whisk or hand mixer until the mixture becomes very frothy. Add the cream of tartar and vanilla extract and continue whisking vigorously. You want to continue whisking until the egg whites become just slightly stiff and form soft peaks when you lift up the whisk. Once the egg whites look white, instead of clear, and you can make peaks on the surface with your whisk, carefully fold the dry ingredients into the egg whites with a flexible spatula, adding the dry ingredients a little at a time until the batter is mixed. Do this gently to prevent the egg whites from collapsing. Quickly pour the batter into the lined round pan and place it into the oven. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until the cake begins to brown on top and the center feels firm. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool. Top your cake slices with dollops of coconut cream, chopped dark chocolate and fresh strawberries. Tips For a Perfect Keto Angel Food Cake The whisked egg whites are delicate, so gently (but quickly) fold in the dry ingredients and place … Continue reading “Keto Angel Food Cake”

Primal Breakfast Cookies Recipe

Breakfast cookies are a fantastic way to get some on-the-go nutrition. These cookies are loaded with healthy fats, different forms of protein, and a little sweetness and crunch. The ground cashews provide a sweet and nutty cookie that’s milder compared to almond-based cookies. Feel free to swap out ingredients to change the flavor of the cookies. Try different nuts or seeds, a mashed banana instead of applesauce, or a different flavor of collagen.

Primal and Keto Collagen Recipes

Mark’s said it before: He advocates for collagen to become the fourth macronutrient. Collagen supports collagen-based structures in the body, such as fascia, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, skin, nails, and hair, and most of us just don’t get enough of it from meat, dairy, eggs, or plant proteins. Learn more about the important role glycine, the primary amino acid found in collagen protein, and check out our creative culinary ways to include more collagen in your diet.
Reasons to Include Collagen in Your Diet
Most people regard amino acids in one of two ways: essential, meaning our bodies can’t synthesize them, or inessential, meaning our bodies can. There’s also a third category of amino acids: conditionally essential, which become essential in times of illness and heightened stress. One such conditionally essential amino acid is glycine.

No-Dairy Dirty Chai Latte

A little sweet, a lot spiced, and topped with cloud-like frothed (or warmed) milk, a chai latte is black tea steeped with milk as well as cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and often black pepper, fennel, and ginger. Traditionally sweetened with a bit of honey, the chai lattes available widely in the Western world tend to be cloying with syrups and artificial flavors that don’t honor the Indian art of steeping the tea with whole spices. To find a Primal and Primal-keto version, forego the coffee house line and make your own at home.
