COLLAGEN SMOOTHIE – W/ VITAL PROTEINS & HOMEMADE COCONUT ALMOND BUTTER

Some of the reasons I LOVE Vital Proteins are 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 and is essential to helping decrease signs of aging. Need I say more??  I ramble more about the amazing benefits of collagen in my post here.

This smoothie recipe is fast, easy and SUPER delicious!  And the best part?  It’s good for you!

2016 RECAP: Last year I swapped coffee for matcha, chopped my hair and dyed it pink and Chris and I celebrated five year of being together.  I bought a new car (I didn’t really have a choice considering I got a lemon and it all went to hell on me) and after almost 10 years and millions of mocha frappuccinos and caramel macchiatos later… I quit my job at Starbucks.

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!
