Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body, giving structure and support to our connective tissue, keeping our skin young and tight, and lining our stomachs.

But you already know that.

You likely also know that taking the same collagen protein supplements every day, in the same way, can quickly make you hate what should be the easiest way to gain daily protein.

Collagen protein is broken down into smaller particles called collagen peptides. There are so many ways to enjoy collagen, but one of the most convenient ways is to drink it!

Here’s the good news: there are so many ways to integrate BUBS Naturals Collagen Protein into your favorite beverage. Collagen peptides can be mixed into your water, but that’s boring. And we trust that you’re not. From coffee to milkshakes, here are our favorite ways to drink down collagen peptides in distinctively un-boring ways.

Coffee & Collagen: The Best Way to Start Your Day

This may be basic, but mixing collagen into our morning coffee just might be our favorite way to take collagen peptides. Taking collagen first thing in the morning guarantees that we can source the protein we need for the day and what better way than with coffee? Collagen protein can be mixed in with black coffee or added alongside your favorite milk or creamer. Collagen peptides dissolve easily in hot liquids, making a hot cup of coffee a great choice.

Show Your Lattes Some Love

Collagen is best mixed using a frother...which can also conveniently froth milk for a latte. Heat your favorite milk and then mix with BUBS Naturals Collagen Protein until you achieve a thick foam. Then, pour over your favorite espresso. We love adding a few drops of vanilla extract to make a vanilla latte, but you can add any of your favorite flavors like peppermint and mocha. And since fall is here, you can’t forget the Pumpkin Spice Latte.

You can also mix BUBS Naturals Collagen Protein in tea. Yes, tea. Mix in chai tea to make a chai tea latte, or try an amino acid packed London Fog. Just mix in Earl Grey tea and a drop of vanilla extract.

Matcha

Matcha is a type of green tea made from grinding tea leaves into a powder. Collagen peptides, which also comes in a powder, mix well with matcha. Matcha green tea is traditionally served hot, but it can be enjoyed iced as well. It is high in antioxidants which may reduce blood pressure, lower the risk of heart disease and boost your metabolism. It has caffeine but not as much as coffee, making it a great way to start your day, especially if you need a boost of energy but want to cut back on caffeine.

Matcha doesn’t have protein...but our Collagen Protein does! Adding collagen to your morning matcha gives you a bonus boost of powerful amino acids while energizing you for the day.

Smoothies

While juicing remains a popular way to get your daily dose of fruits and vegetables, juices tend to be high in sugar and leave out a key nutrient: fiber. Smoothies, on the other hand, can be rich in fiber, as well as the many other vitamins and minerals found in fruits and vegetables. When you make your own smoothies, you can also leave out all the added sugars that many popular chains integrate. Many people also enjoy protein powders, such as whey, in their smoothies. Collagen is another excellent add-in!

Collagen-filled smoothies can do wonders for hair, skin and nails, providing strength and structure for hair and nails while also maintaining skin’s elasticity. All the while, fruits and vegetables are filled with antioxidants that keep skin healthy and youthful.

Whether at home or on the go, BUBS Naturals Collagen Peptides can be mixed easily into all your favorite drinks. Our peptides are naturally sourced from high-quality collagen and are high in many essential amino acids. Check out our line of on the go collagen peptides powder packets which are perfect for adding them to drinks at your favorite coffee shops.
