Anyone in the mood for coffee? I hope so because today I’m chatting all about how I make my collagen coffee, which I’ve become 10000% obsessed with lately. I mentioned it briefly in my January favorites post, but today I thought it would be fun to share how I use it in my daily routine. There are actually two different ways I put it in my coffee, so I’m going to share both options. But first I have to say that I’m not a health professional at all. You guys obviously know this, but I feel like it needs to be said because I’m simply sharing what is working for me. I suggest doing your own research, talk to your doctor, and always do what is best for you. Okie dokie!? Ok good, now that all the mumbo jumbo is out of the way let’s chat about collagen coffeeeeeeeee.
So I started drinking collagen every morning about a month ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. Sometimes I even drink it in the afternoon! And the main reason I started using collagen was because I heard about all the amazing things it can do for your skin. Just do a little Google-ing and you’ll see that it has tons of amazing skin benefits. It helps with elasticity, increases skin moisture, and apparently even reduces wrinkles. SIGN ME UP FOR THAT. And on top of that it has lots of benefits for your bones and joints. Plus the collagen I use is loaded with protein and it’s not sweet at all.
I’ve been using collagen in two different ways:
MY GO-TO COLLAGEN COFFEE
- One large cup of hot coffee (I don’t measure it out, I just use one of my favorite mugs)
- 1 scoop of collagen
- half & half
BULLET PROOF COFFEE
- One large cup of hot coffee
- 1 scoop of collagen
- 1 tablespoon grass fed butter
- a splash of half & half
- 1/2 tablespoon MCT oil
In both options I use my Magic Bullet to mix everything up. I usually blend it for about ten seconds and it turns into the creamiest coffee ever. Seriously, I enjoy drinking this more than I do a fancy latte from Starbucks–it tastes absolutely divine. I typically do just collagen coffee most days, but if I’m not eating breakfast or feel like I need extra energy I will do the “bullet proof coffee”, which has butter and MCT oil–it’s great if you’re following more of a KETO type diet and you definitely won’t be hungry for several hours!
Benefits I’ve noticed since starting collagen:
- More energy throughout the day
- Much better sleep
- Mental clarity (this is a big one for me!)
- My hair is growing faster
- My nails are definitely thicker & stronger
Just looking at these photos is making me crave a cup of college coffee soooooo bad. You guys, I’m addicted. But it’s just so darn good and I am already seeing the benefits. If you haven’t tried collagen yet I highly recommend it. Just do a little research and you’ll see how great it is for you. This is the brand I’ve been using, but there are tons and tons of great options out there. I’m going to try using it in other things like smoothies and cold drinks, so I will definitely share those with you all if I come up with anything good!
Thanks so much for stoping by and spending part of your weekend here with me. Let me know if you have any questions at all and I’ll see ya back here Monday!! xoxo
