Summer Smoothie For Healthy Skin, Hair, & Nails

Feeling a little dried out and crackly from the summer heat and extra chlorine?  Take care of your skin and hair with our super easy, blender bottle summer smoothie!  This smoothie is full of collagen peptides from 100% grass-fed beef as well as marine collagen for an added boost of goodness.  Collagen is essential for the health and appearance of your skin, and helps to reduce the typical signs of aging by increasing elasticity, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  Collagen is also necessary for healthy hair growth and fingernails. It happens to be the most abundant protein present in the body!

Recipe

The great thing about this smoothie is that it’s fast and delicious – no blender is required.  Just pour it over ice and take it to the gym with you for your morning workout routine – plenty of protein, antioxidants and complex carbs for quick and sustained energy.

Ingredients:

1 scoop Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides

1 scoop Vital Proteins Beauty Greens

1 tsp Anthocyanin Syrup

1 tablespoon ground chia seed

8 oz. dairy alternative (almond, hemp, hazelnut, macadamia or coconut milk)

Additional water for consistency

Options:  Add organic fruit that is already blended – use mashed bananas, prunes or berries from the baby food aisle!

Put all ingredients in a blender bottle and shake, shake, shake! For a colder smoothie pour over ice and enjoy right away – if it sits too long the collagen will begin to gel and you may have to eat it with a spoon.
