Sip on something refreshing and delicious this summer with healthy collagen-packed smoothies that will have you feeling great from the inside out. Incorporating collagen peptides into your daily routine is very simple, but if you feel like sprucing things up, one of the best ways to ensure that you are getting your collagen protein is through a healthy and delicious collagen smoothie.
Who doesn’t love smoothies? In fact, does anyone else remember being a kid and the idea of a smoothie or shake always felt like dessert? Our inner children would be jumping for joy right now at the thought of enjoying a delicious and healthy smoothie for breakfast! But before we get ahead of ourselves, let us be reminded of the many health and beauty benefits that come along with a collagen-packed smoothie.
Smoothies allow a person to consume more fruits, veggies and nutrients in one sitting than a traditional meal that may not include as many healthy, blended items. Adding collagen peptides and other supplements may also make it easier to consume those nourishing combinations during your first meal of the day. Making a smoothie, like our Berry Green Smoothie, is a simple way to enjoy the blended berries that are full of antioxidants and natural sweetness, while still packed with the nutrients and vitamins of spinach.
Smoothies are a great way to experiment with different fruits and veggies until you find a perfect recipe! Some basic ingredients to consider while experimenting with your smoothie: fruits, veggies, protein and collagen peptides or other collagen supplements. Combine into a blender and at the push of a button, there is the healthy and delicious morning boost that you’ve been looking for!

As you are enjoying your refreshing smoothie packed with collagen, let’s focus on what makes collagen peptides so great. Well, as we have previously discussed, collagen is a protein that already exists within our body. It is the same protein that connects the fibers in our tissues, skin, ligaments and bones; think of collagen as an intracellular adhesive or glue that supports all of your major organs. So supplementing your diet with collagen peptides or hydrolyzed collagen can have amazing benefits that begin with your joints and end with your hair, skin and overall wellness.
Let’s also not forget about the beauty benefits that may be directly related to regular consumption of a collagen supplement. Incorporating collagen into your morning smoothie may improve skin elasticity while helping to restore your body’s natural production of collagen and amino acids.
So whether you are looking for a more delicious way to enjoy your Collagen Hydrolysate or if you just love healthy options, collagen-packed smoothies are the way to go!
