Collagen is so important and has so many benefits including helping prevent the signs of aging. I LOVE Vital Proteins because they understand the benefits of collagen and all their products are gluten-free, NON-GMO, whole-food-based & cruelty-free! Collagen is basically the “glue” that holds our entire bodies together. For more amazing benefits on collagen, see my post here.
As usual, this smoothie recipe is fast, easy and SUPER healthy! This one uses two of my favorites from Vital Proteins listed below and is more for those health conscious super green lovers that like that earthy good-for-you taste if that makes sense. If that’s not really your thing, I recommend adding a little cinnamon in the recipe to sweeten it up a bit.
Marine Collagen is made from fresh wild-caught snapper & natural glycine that promotes healthy immune, digestive, and central nervous systems. It promotes youthful skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails and also supports joint health.
Collagen Beauty Greens is a nourishing elixir combines marine collagen peptides with raw organic greens, hyaluronic acid, and probiotics. I LOVE the natural coconut flavor made from organic coconut water & the finest Madagascar vanilla beans. These Beauty Greens help prevent signs of aging while improving skin’s moisture, smoothness & tone, giving your skin a natural, healthy glow.

- 1 level scoop Collagen Beauty Greens
