Recipe for 2 portions

Ingredients:

.
  • batties 450 g (2 pieces)
  • .
  • grinded sweet paprika 7 g (2 teaspoons)
  • .
  • spicy sweet paprika 3 g (1 teaspoon)
  • .
  • granulated garlic 3 g (1 teaspoon)
  • .
  • potato flour 15 g (2 teaspoons)
  • .
  • olive oil 10 g (1 tbsp)
  • .
  • mango 120 g (½ piece)
  • .
  • chili pepper 5 g (¼ piece)
  • .
  • vegan mayonnaise 40 g (2 tbsp)
  • .

  • .
  • Natu.Care Collagen Premium 5000 mg, mango-maracuja 1 sachet
  • .
  • optional parsley to sprinkle
  • .

Preparation:

  • Peel the beatats, cut into bars, rinse and place in a bowl. Pour in cold water and set aside for about 30 minutes. 
  • Pour in cold water and set aside for about 30 minutes.
  • Mix the sweet pepper, hot pepper, granulated garlic and potato flour in a bowl. 
  • .
  • Prepare the sauce - cut the mango in half and slice the flesh vertically and then horizontally - so that a cube is formed. Finally, hollow out the mango cubes with a spoon or cut with a knife. Cut the chilli pepper in half, remove the seeds and chop finely. In the blender cup, blend the mango with the chilli. Then add the mayonnaise and yoghurt and blend again. Finally, add the sachet of collagen, blend until you have a smooth sauce. 
  • .
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C, line a baking tray with baking paper. Pat the yams dry with a paper towel. Transfer them to a bowl, add the spice mixture you prepared earlier and the oil, then mix thoroughly. Place the fritters on a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes. Serve with the previously prepared mango mayo sauce and optional parsley. 
  • .

Batatatas are a great source of beta-carotene, so they have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Mangoes are a valuable source of vitamins A, C, E, while capsaicin from chilli peppers has anti-cancer properties. Collagen mango-mayo sauce is also suitable for sandwiches or tortillas.

Protip: if you want the yams to come out crispier, place the peeled posts in cold water for at least 30 minutes.

Why is it a good idea to supplement with collagen?

.

It's worth considering  collagen supplementation after the age of 25, because this is when the body's natural collagen production begins to declineand. This is why the first wrinkles or fine lines appear and the skin loses its firmness. But there is a way around this - supplementing with youth protein from a dietary supplement.

According to scientific studies, taking fish collagen for 3 months positively affects the appearance and condition of your hairskin and nailsand. Collagen also supports the health of jointsbones and musclesand - to keep you fit and active for as long as possible.
