Don’t you just love chocolate? Us too! We also like to mind our health while snacking which is why this super quick and easy-to-make Chocolate Fingers recipe - with a special twist - is perfect. What’s the special twist? It has collagen powder in it. Why collagen, you ask? Scroll down and we’ll tell you.
What is collagen and why should I add it to my dessert?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It is the major component of connective tissues, such as skin and cartilages.
Collagen powder has several benefits:
- Collagen rejuvenates the skin.
- Collagen reduces hair loss and strengthens nails.
- Collagen relieves joint pain.
- Collagen is rich in good fat.
- Collagen promotes heart health.
- Collagen could prevent bone loss.
- Collagen could boost muscle mass.
And many more.
After 8 weeks of adding collagen to your daily routine, you will see and feel the difference. Getting more protein into your day is easy when you add a scoop of collagen to your coffee, tea, baking, or smoothies. You can find collagen supplements in the form of pills, cream, or powder. Collagen powder is preferred over pills because powder is absorbed into your system much quicker than any other form of supplements since you ingest it with your food or drink.
The powder is mainly made from animal tissue, so vegans should steer clear of collagen.
And now, let’s make some chocolate collagen fingers!
