5 Collagen Smoothie Recipes We Can’t Get Enough of

So you’ve decided that supplementing with collagen is right for you, and now you’ve got your Collagen Powder ready to go. But what’s the best way to take your new supplement? You can add it to anything, like your morning coffee or a bowl of soup. However, our favorite way to supplement is by sipping on a delicious collagen smoothie.

Benefits of Collagen Smoothies

A well-balanced smoothie is a fantastic source of fat, protein, and carbs. It's full of nutrients, like essential amino acids, fiber, and antioxidants. Smoothies are also an excellent way to introduce bacteria that we need for optimal gut health. But when you add a collagen supplement, the benefits multiply. 

That’s because collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, and it’s responsible for overall health. The vital proteins collagen contributes to our body give us healthier skin, hair, and improved heart health. And since collagen is abundant in our bones, ligaments, and tendons, supplements can help relieve achy joints. 

5 Yummy Collagen Smoothie Recipes

To get you started, we’ve compiled some of our favorite gluten-free recipes. Feel free to add or modify ingredients as you wish. 

For example, if you’re lactose-intolerant, you can easily make these recipes dairy-free by substituting milk for almond or oat milk. Or if protein smoothies are your thing, you’ll be glad to know that collagen peptides are also a type of protein powder that can help boost your health. 

And finally, a quick note on the best time of day to take collagen. There’s a lot of debate about whether morning or night is best. However, the reality is that you can reap the benefits of a collagen smoothie whenever it is most convenient for you.

Now let’s dive into the recipes.
