If you have followed me for long then you know that I am the queen of smoothies! Yes my title may be self-proclaimed, but I have tested and tried every kind of smoothie at every time of day, and my addiction isn’t because of their great flavor and taste, it is because I have discovered a way to make my smoothies nutrient packed! Oh, and because I am LOVING reaping the benefits!
Today I introduce you to my go-to smoothie made with the help of my go-to brand, Vital Proteins. I use Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides EVERY. DAY. in my smoothies. Why? Well collagen is known to heal leaky gut, improve hair and nail growth, improve skin elasticity, protect from heart disease, and protect your brain from Alzheimer’s and more! Since adding VP to my diet, not only has my digestion improved, but I’ve noticed SIGNIFICANT hair growth and my nails and bones are stronger than ever. TRUTH.
And if you’re not a smoothie person that’s okay!! You can simply add Vital Proteins to 8oz of water and drink it straight! The classic flavor has no taste, but the flavored lines including Vanilla Coconut, Melon Mint, Cucumber Aloe, and more will give your drink the perfect touch of taste. Vital Proteins started with their collagen peptides, and I’ve LOVED seeing their business develop to now include collagen creamers, bone broth powders, greens and veggies, beauty collagens, and more!
