Green Collagen Smoothie



Collagen is sort of having a moment right now. It’s been around forever but it’s really starting to catch on in the wellness community as of late and for good reason… it’s sort of magical.

Let me break it down…

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body. It makes up 70% of our skin and 90% of our connective tissue

Aging sucks. In our 20’s, our bodies begin making less collagen which leads to wrinkles, saggy skin, stiff joints and weaker bones.

Back to the paleo thing… in the cave men times, people ate entire animals and let’s be honest… that’s a pretty good way to get collagen. Since today, we’re less inclined to eat an entire animal, we’re taking in less collagen in our diets.

Thankfully, we can add collagen peptides to our diet to help reverse the natural collagen loss that’s just a part of the aging process.

You can add it to anything– it’s tasteless (they do make flavored collagen but the one I use by Further Foods is unflavored). It dissolves easily so I love throwing it in smoothies, oatmeal, coffee, etc.

Disclaimer: I’m a brand ambassador for Further Food Collagen Peptides but that’s because I personally use it every day in some way shape or form. (Check out my discount code at the end of the post)

Further Food Collagen Peptides are:

  • Grass Fed

  • Pasture Raised

  • Non-GMO

  • Paleo

  • Kosher

  • Gluten-Free

  • Dairy-Free

Oh and there’s only one ingredient.

So basically, they check every box imaginable and pretty much any one can take them except of course vegetarians because they do come from bovine. (Don’t worry veg heads—there are a bunch of vegan collagen supplements out there!)

They’re highly bio-available which means that your body absorbs >90% of this stuff in the first six hours after you take it.

Why collagen over traditional protein supplements? BECAUSE… it’ll make your hair, skin and nails look amazing AND it also provides gut health benefits which is just an added bonus!
