Collagen Cocoa

Collagen Cocoa

Now that it’s getting colder, I like warmer beverages. While smoothies are good, I’m not one to drink smoothies year round. I drink hot coffee year round but ask me to drink a cold beverage when it’s 40 degrees, it’s a hard no from me.

Now that I’m back to running, I’m back to drinking collagen post run. I’ve been a Vital Proteins Ambassador almost a year now, but have enjoyed the products for much longer.

For warmer beverages, I personally prefer the Vital Proteins Flavorless Option.  Why?  Because you mix it into anything and it truly doesn’t have a taste and isn’t gritty either.  I’ve put it into coffee and hot cocoa, and it’s been great.

What are Collagen Peptides?

Collagen Peptides are easily digestible in both cold or hot liquids.  Collagen Peptides support healthy hair, skin, nails, bone, and joint health, plus help to recover from workouts.

Quick Facts of the Unflavored Collagen:

  • 20 grams of collagen per serving
  • 1 simple ingredient which makes it gluten free, dairy free, and even sugar-free

So anyway, this month I’ve been mixing the unflavored collagen with hot cocoa.  I’m not fancy and boil a pot of water, add collagen and add a hot cocoa packet.

I like things simple and easy.  Boiling hot cocoa, adding collagen, and mixing takes about 5 minutes at most.

Questions for you:

Do you prefer hot or cold beverages?

Have you tried collagen before?

  1. I have heard so much about collagen lately, but never tried it for myself! It seems to have so many benefits – I really need to look into it!

  2. Collagen seems to be something that is really becoming popular as a drink addition, I have to admit I don’t think it’s something I have tried, but I wouldn’t say no especially if it helps.

  3. Very interesting read. It seems like the benefits of collagen are wonderful. I’m currently breastfeeding so I wonder if it would be safe for me? Thanks for sharing!

  4. I keep hearing about this collagen stuff. We need to incorporate more protein in our diet! I think powders can help

  5. Joint health is something that ladies struggle with, it is always good to hear about stuff that can help. And I love that you can take this hot. A cold drink won’t warm your bones 🙂

  7. Never have heard of this product sounds very interesting I must look for it in my market to try it. Have heard good things about collagen.

  8. I do prefer hot beverages in winter, as I’m not dealing very well with the cold weather. I haven’t tried collagen before and had no idea what it was before reading your post.

  9. It seems like collagen in other forms is on the rise in popularity! I need to try this- quickly approaching 40 and I need all the help I can get to stay youthful!

  10. I prefer both hot and cold beverages, depends on the weather. I’m like you with powders though, I prefer the unflavored ones so I can use them in a greater variety of ways.

  11. You know, I love drinking hot cocoa and this one makes me interest on Collagen Cocoa. I’ll have to try it for myself.
