SUPER GREEN COLLAGEN SMOOTHIE – VITAL PROTEINS

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.

There’s just something about a rainy day that makes a coffee date extra special.  One of my favorite local coffee shops is Dripp in Fullerton, CA.  I brought my mom in the other day when it was pouring and we had some time to kill.  I got my usual favorite, their lavender matcha latte with almond milk and my mom tried their mocha.  We also shared their pumpkin pie pop tart – warmed of course!
