Coconut Berry Beet Cups (Paleo, Low Carb)


Feeling the Valentine's Day vibes with these colors! Does anyone else loves the colors of this time of the year? All red, pink, white and lots of chocolate. Valentines Day or not, single or not single these will hit the spot any time of the year.


There's no obligation on sharing any of them, your secret will be safe with me. I didn't share... but shh!


These have the perfect combination of chocolate, berries, antioxidants, flavors, textures that it will be impossible for you not to love! I'm so excited to share this recipe with you and I hope you enjoy as much as I did.



This recipe includes:

- Dark Chocolate

- Coconut

- Beet powder

- Gluten free berry granola

- Lakanto

- Beef gelatin



As you can tell by the list of ingredients this is gut friendly and loaded with antioxidants from berries, beets and chocolate! A dose of healthy fats from chocolate and coconuts, some gut love from beef gelatin and a pinch of sweetness with some monk fruit.


Can we talk a little bit about the role of beets on liver detox?


We are exposed to toxins every single day, this can come from the environment or from our own body. Proper liver detoxification is needed to get rid of all of them, or at least most of them. Did you know that for every toxin metabolized by the liver, a free radical gets created?!


The red color comes from a natural powerful pigment from beets. These babies are loaded with antioxidants called betalians, they act neutralizing free radicals caused by stress and cell damage.



An interesting fact is that most of us are exposed to almost the same amount of toxins. A bio-accumulation can cause health problems but a proper liver detoxification, meaning that a proper amount of antioxidants and fiber can prevent those issued to happen.


Back to the recipe!


This recipe doesn't require any cooking or baking so it's easy in case you don't want to be bothered using the stove. I've got you, and I guarantee that you'll enjoy each dreamy bite. As I like to say, we have the choice to pick better ingredients without sacrificing the taste.


There are THREE delicious layers in this recipe:


1st layer: a thin layer of dark chocolate. It's important to choose a dark chocolate to create a delicious contrast of sweet and bitter flavors.



2nd layer: Almond milk with gluten free granola and beef gelatin. Feel free to use the granola of your preference, to add an incredible crunch to them.


3rd layer: organic beet powder and shredded coconuts, the perfect combination of healthy fats and antioxidants, plus some amino acids from grass fed beef gelatin.
