Whether you plan to celebrate Valentine's Day with someone, by yourself, or you intend to completely ignore the fact, these doughnuts are our dish of the day for Feb 14!
We wanted a sweet, sticky treat and so we asked our good friend and foodie stylist maestro, Peachy Palate, to come up with something that would surely make us feel good. These vanilla baked doughnuts with raspberry lemon collagen certainly tick all our boxes! So, if Cupid is your cup of tea, or you just couldn't care less, one bite into these tasty morsels and it'll be instant love.
Here's more from Peachy:
Baked donuts with a collagen infused glaze! The donuts themselves are kind of cake like in consistency, but a little sticky around the edges, in the best way possible. They do have a denser feel, but are somehow at the same time light. You’ll just have to give them a go to see what I mean!
The new Anti-ageing raspberry blend collagen from Edible Health works a treat in the glaze. It bestows its own colour thanks to the inclusion of freeze dried raspberry powder. I did give it a little extra helping hand to bump up the pink hue just in time for Valentine’s Day with just a smidge of beet powder.
