Vital Proteins Matcha Caramel Slice

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” – Roald Dahl

These babies are 100% AIP-friendly and there is a secret ingredient in these Matcha Caramel Slices. A trick for unsuspecting players. A sneaky little boost of goodness that will leave even the most muggle-like* AIP-eater in the dark…

Vital Proteins Collagen Veggie Blend!

Yep. Hidden veggies! Perfect for little people’s lunch boxes!

And, of course – because they’re nut-free, they’re playground compliant, too!

Shhhhh! I won’t tell if you don’t!


Secret Ingredient Caramel Slice

While a POWER Green Smoothie is the more traditional, and perhaps even obvious way to enjoy The Paleo Mom’s Veggie Blend collaboration with Vital Proteins, I wanted to see if I could could get creative. The extra hit of 3 serves of veggies and 1 serve of fruit in this baby just calls out for hiding it in unsuspecting places…

Inspired by a recent visit from my 7-year old, veggie-hating – “I don’t like anything green!” – niece. This lunch-box filler was born.

Oh – and in case you’re wondering, I buy my collagen direct from Vital Proteins and I source my tigernuts from Terra Firma Foods.

My AIP muggle friend, Sally declared the Matcha Caramel Slice “a winner!” 

The combination of carob and dates imparts a seriously good caramel flavour, and the matcha provides a foil for the hidden goodness in the slice…
