STRAWBERRY MACAROONS by @charissa_and_co_wellness

Coconut pulp is such a versatile ingredient to have in the kitchen, the pulp from the coconut is a great source of fiber, which is essential for the health of our metabolism and along with other benefits.
Coconut pulp is also known to increase the regularity of your bowel movements. Coconut pulp is a lot more beneficial than using wheat bran when it comes to a quick fiber ingredient.
I use Nuzest plant protein within most of my dishes, their protein is probably the best one I have used as it is really super easy on my digestion.
I also love the fact that it has no chalky after taste. Vegan Friendly with No Soy, Dairy or Gluten. Free from GMO's and low in carbs. Safe for the family.

Sugar is known to damage collagen and elastin production, which are responsible for maintaining skin’s elasticity. This recipe we use low GI sugar.
3 Cups of unsweetened desiccated coconut
1 Cup of cacao butter (melted)
1/2 Cup of coconut oil
1/2 Cup dried strawberries
2 Servings of Wild Strawberry Clean Lean Protein @Nuzest
1 Serving of Vanilla Clean Lean protein @Nuzest
1 Tablespoon of White dried Mulberries
1 Tablespoon of white chai seed meal
2 Tablespoons of Almond Flour
2 Tablespoons of Yacon syrup
Line a 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper or use your desired silicone moulds.
Make sure your cacao butter and coconut oil is fully melted before mixing the ingredients, I usually melt mine over a stove instead of a microwave, once it is melted you can remove from the stove and then add in all the other ingredients, apart from the Good Green stuff (wild strawberry powder) as well as the yacon syrup, keep this all separate.
Once all is mixed, you can then mix in the yacon syrup, with 1 part of the wild strawberry powder. It should just be a basic quick mix, as some parts will have more strawberry than others, to allow for a bit of a flavour play when chewing on these.
Once mixed, scoop out into your pan or moulds, place in the freezer (make sure it is covered). One hour you can remove from freezer to enjoy. During the freezing time you can prepare the coconut strawberry cream, by taking the remaining 1 Serving of the Wild Strawberry Good green stuff and mixing it in 1/2 cup of vanilla coconut yoghurt, once mixed with no lumps, scoop it into your ziplock bag, pop into the freezer 10min before your main mix is ready.
Cut the tip off and squeeze desired amounts onto the macaroons when you are ready to serve. Optional, you can just enjoy on their own too.
**Tip: If you have no dried strawberries, then use dried goji berries.
