Blueberry Collagen Coconut Smoothie a.k.a. The Road to a Stress-Free, Gut-Happy, Energizer-Bunny & Skin Glowing YOU!

Hey babes!

<3

Today, I had so much fun whipping up this smoothie recipe because I let myself get a bit adventurous & used some ingredients I’ve never tried in a smoothie in the past: COCONUT WATER & Vital Proteins COCONUT COLLAGEN CREAMER! And oh my goodness, I have to say that I am quite disappointed in myself for never having tried this delicious combo in the past!

This smoothie is creamy, delicious & so refreshing! The collagen creamer provides a good dose of protein, collagen & amino acids. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body & helps keep your gut healthy, digestion in check, muscles, ligaments & joints strong & skin, hair & nails glowing, youthful, plump, healthy & radiant! You can read more about all the benefits of collagen in my full blog post here if you’re interested: Collagen Here, Collagen There, Collagen Everywhere: The Basics & Why You Should Add It To Your Daily Routine!

I added some raw yellow maca for a sustained boost of energy, stress relief & hormone balancing, coconut water for electrolytes, hydration & skin health, blueberries & dark tart cherries for antioxidants, fibre & vitamin C, cashew butter for healthy fats, which are anti-inflammatory, and therefore help heal the skin, gut & prevent any inflammatory disease or infection & protein to make this a filling & satisfying treat!

(BTW, PRO TIP: Make sure your coconut water is just 100% organic coconut water & that it contains no added ingredients or sugars! You don’t want to make a smoothie THIS healthy & then screw it up with refined sugars & ingredients that won’t make you feel good!).

I topped it off with some fresh crisp bluebs, bee pollen for an immunity boost & gut health & cacao nibs for disease-fighting antioxidants, magnesium & iron!

Here’s how to make it & to be on the road to GLOWING SKIN, A HAPPY GUT & AN ENERGIZED & STRESS-FREE YOU!

  • 1/3 cup UNSWEETENED coconut water
  • 2/3 cup homemade vanilla cinnamon almond milk (OR any other plant-based milk of choice OR regular milk)
