Collagen Smoothie Recipes

2 mins read By Darcy Laceby collagen

Who doesn’t love a delicious smoothie? Well, we wanted to talk about the benefits of adding collagen to your smoothie, as well as our favourite Absolute Collagen smoothie recipes!

Here at Absolute Collagen HQ, we usually get great feedback on the taste of our liquid collagen supplement, despite the sometimes bitter taste of using marine collagen

But we know that we can’t please everybody. That’s why, from time to time, we do get asked if Absolute Collagen can be blended with anything to help with taste.

In this article, we will chat through how to make collagen taste better by creating delicious collagen smoothie recipes. 

Let’s get blending!

Wait, I can add collagen to smoothies?

That’s right, you can create a collagen-boosting drink with our handy sachets. All you need to do is pop one of our ready-mixed 10ml liquid formula into any warm or cold drink of your choice. In fact, we have Absoluters who try collagen drink recipes as a replacement of a sweetener in their morning cup of coffee!

However, our absolute favourite way to make collagen taste better is to create lip-smacking collagen smoothie recipes. Not only does it give you a boost of vitamin C*, but some smoothies with collagen could even help you lose weight, thanks to the superfood ingredients!

*Each sachet of Absolute Collagen contains 60 mg of Vitamin C, which is 75% of your daily Nutrient Reference Value. Enjoy a daily dose of Absolute Collagen as part of a balanced, healthy diet and active lifestyle.

What’s more, collagen smoothies are also a great way to hydrate. After all, it can seem a bit daunting to consume the recommended 8 glasses of water a day - but if you opt for a milk or water-based collagen shake, you’re still ticking the hydration box!

Rich in fruit and vegetables, collagen smoothie recipes can also help to aid digestion by containing some of your 5-a-day. Coconut, in particular, has omega-3 fatty acids which help to keep our brains working in tip-top condition.

Dairy-based collagen drink recipes containing yoghurt and milk will also boost your calcium intake, which is imperative for strong and healthy bones. Plus, the addition of protein-rich** Absolute Collagen will help you feel fuller for longer and stop you snacking in-between meals. 

**Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. Each sachet of Absolute Collagen is high in and a source of protein. Enjoy a daily dose of Absolute Collagen as part of a balanced, healthy diet and active lifestyle.
