6 Delicious Drinks To Make With Flavored Collagen Powders

When collagen first started trending a few years back, people marveled at how it dissolved into their morning coffee or smoothie, punching up the protein content without impacting its flavor one bit. And though collagen’s ability to slip into all sorts of recipes undetected is definitely one of its claims to fame (you know, aside from the joint, skin, gut, and other benefits), it doesn’t have to fly under the radar. In fact, the ever-popular supplement is ready to be the star of the show. Flavored collagen powders are popping up left and right—and with options inspired by everything from tropical fruit to peanut butter cups, they’re anything but boring. Check out the following six drink recipes to spruce up your own collagen routine.
