Sometimes I just really want a shake... or a simple meal... or chocolate... or maybe all of the above! And I don't want ingredients that I can't identify. Since necessity is the mother of invention, voila! (Picture me unveiling the shake with much pomp and circumstance.)
I'm a big fan of Vital Proteins because their products are high quality and well-sourced. The collagen peptides are so versatile because there is almost no flavor which means it can be used in so many ways. When I need a big of extra protein I have added it to soup, tea, oatmeal, popsicles, smoothies, and pretty much any drink (hot or cold). Collagen peptides support healthy skin, connective tissues, and joints.
I am really enjoying the vanilla collagen why in my rooibos chai tea. It makes it taste like a cookie! Haha!
This recipe makes enough for two people.
-2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (buy here)
-2 scoops Vital Proteins Vanilla Collagen Whey (buy here)
-1.5 cups milk of choice (I like this one)
-2 Tablespoons cocoa powder (I like this one)
-1/4 cup nut butter of choice
-2 dashes cinnamon (I like this one)
-2 sliced frozen bananas (or if not frozen add more ice)
-1.5 cups ice
(If you are dairy-free you can sub the Vanilla Collagen Whey for an additional 2 scoops Collagen Peptides and a splash of vanilla extract.)
Blend all ingredients together adding the ice last. Enjoy right away or freeze in popsicle molds for a delicious and nutritious treat later!
