Strawberry Collagen Puree Ingredients

The ingredients for this Strawberry Collagen Puree are minimal since you really want to let the flavor of the strawberries shine. 

  • Strawberries - As mentioned, fresh or frozen strawberries work perfectly in this recipe. If you opt for frozen, just let them thaw a bit in the pot before starting for the best results. 

  • Coconut Sugar - While this is technically optional, it does help bring out the vibrant flavor of the strawberries. Start with ¼ of a cup and then adjust from there depending on your preference and the sweetness of the strawberries you’re starting with. 

  • Lemon Juice - Adding a bit of acidity from lemon juice helps to reduce the bitterness you can sometimes get with berries and brighten the flavor. It adds a subtle kick and depth of flavor that really complements the strawberries and sugar. 

  • Collagen Peptides - Here’s where we take this recipe up several nourishing notches. Collagen Peptides are a great addition to recipes like this because they dissolve easily and are completely flavorless. Adding them to this strawberry puree is a great way to give your body the joint, gut, hair, skin, and nail support Collagen Peptides provide. *

How To Make Strawberry Collagen Puree

When we say this recipe couldn’t be simpler, we mean it. All it takes is a little stirring and a bit of attention. 

Step 1: Combine strawberries, coconut sugar, and lemon juice in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Remember, if starting with frozen strawberries, let them thaw in the pan for a while for better results. As the strawberries heat up, they’ll start to release their juices. Bring the contents to a gentle simmer. 

Step 2: Stir regularly, breaking up the strawberries as they soften. You’ll want to keep an eye on this while it cooks as it can go from a gentle simmer to boiling over and burning faster than you might expect. Continue to stir until the strawberries are mostly broken down and the juices seem to be thickening. The longer you cook, the thicker the end result will be. 

Step 3: Blend the strawberries using an immersion blender to create a smooth puree. Alternatively, you can let the mixture cool down a bit and transfer it to a blender to puree. 

Step 4: Whisk in the Collagen Peptides. 

Step 5: You can serve this puree warm, room temperature, or straight from the fridge. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
