Are you looking to get a little more protein into your diet? If you are working out, this is a great pre-workout or post-workout shake to feed your muscles and for joint recovery!
Normally when I think of protein shakes, I think of nasty chalky powders that I can barely choke down. So, when I tried this, I couldn’t believe how smooth and delicious it was!
The source of protein in this shake is Clean and Happy Living’s Collagen Protein Peptides. This stuff is awesome because it is a great source of protein (10 grams per 40 calorie serving!), and it has zero carbs!
It has shown great benefits for hair and skin health, and helps with the elasticity of the skin (helps tighten the extra skin from weight loss), and helps the skin renew itself. It’s also great for building the lining of the intestines, and it is awesome for people with bad joints.
I love that it is unflavored which makes it super versatile- you can add it to your favorite drink or even different sauces! This collagen protein powder comes from grass-fed pasture raised cattle. It is non-GMO, and Keto and Paleo-friendly, and it’s made in the USA. The powder is really fine and mixes really easy with hot or cold drinks, and it’s packed with Amino Acids.
One of my favorite ways to take my collagen is in this yummy and super easy protein shake! Just mix a few simple ingredients and it’s ready to be served.
Tips: The coconut milk we use is a light version, so basically they mix full-fat coconut milk with water. There’s not a lot of fat in this recipe, so if you are looking to add more fat, you can sub the coconut milk for the full-fat coconut milk.
If you need more protein, you can add an extra scoop of the Collagen. If you don’t like the taste of coconut, you can also use unsweetened almond milk for this.
Benefits of collagen peptides are tremendous. It’s great for both internal health (gut and digestion) and external health (hair, nail, skin, etc…). You should consume it daily to maximize its benefits.
