Listen. 2021 Has been a crazy year. I thought I’d seen it all…Until I saw this recipe for collagen donuts infused with fresh peaches and cream! These donuts are tasty, and have tons of beauty benefits packed into each bite. So grab your apron, a fresh jar of our Aquarius collagen, and let’s bake.
The milk-crate challenge blows me away. And I have to admit, I am guilty at laughing hysterically at the misfortune of those brave ‘climbers of the crate’.
But this recipe hit me in a different, more wholesome way.
Okay, Where Did This Recipe Even Come From?
I was scrolling through, wondering where those milk crates even come from anyways…and then these round, beautiful, delectable little collagen donuts scrolled perfectly into view.
I’m not sure if our friend Danielle (@thesaltycooker on IG!) meant for her donuts to have such a profound impact on my life, but let me just say, they absolutely have.
Because when I saw this recipe, I tossed my phone aside (which I need to do way more often TBH), and set about making these donuts.
The best part about this collagen donut recipe is that they taste literally like the best homemade donuts you’ve ever had in your life…but they have those extra side benefits, if you know what I mean.
These are the type of benefits that go even beyond our regular protein donuts recipe, which is still one of my all-time favorite UNICO recipes.
These aren’t just regular protein donuts – these are collagen donuts. Or ‘colla-nuts’ for short. Hm. That doesn’t read as well as I want it to. Lol.
Anyways – no matter what you call them – these donuts have all the skin-benefits of our premium collagen powder.
That includes enhanced skin elasticity, hydration, wrinkle-protection, and all the other amazing beauty benefits provided by our beloved Aquarius Collagen.
