Benefits of Collagen Creamer

Benefits of Collagen Creamer

After sharing on Instagram a few weeks ago, about the collagen creamer, many people asked me if I liked it. In fact, it was one of my most responded too stories. I was not expecting that!

In short, I like the Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer. It’s not as rich as a traditional creamer, but it has far more health benefits. Plus, adding it to coffee isn’t the only way I use it. Unlike other collagen products, the creamer contains healthy fats as well as collagen peptides.

Now that we got a few of the health benefits out of the way on to using it. Many people have asked me how I liked collagen creamer.

If you like darker coffee that doesn’t taste like milk with a splash of coffee, collagen creamer is the way to go. The creamer tastes good, but it isn’t going to taste like a super rich coffee.  Do I like it? Yes. Do I know it won’t taste like a super rich coffee? Also yes.  It doesn’t take away from the flavor of coffee. Most people know I like adding whipped cream in my coffee at diners, it won’t taste like a “dessert” coffee.  I appreciate that as much as coffee with whipped cream.

It might sound crazy but adding the collagen creamer to coffee isn’t the only way I use collagen creamer.

Here are a few ways that I’ve found I like adding the creamer:

  • Hot Cocoa. This is my favorite method of using the creamer. It makes the cocoa much more rich with a hint of coconut.
  • Waffles: Remember early in the month, when I posted the waffle recipe. I’ve occasionally substituted the whey protein for the creamer, and it tastes good. Vital Proteins has discussed using most of their products in baked goods, but I haven’t tried much until this year.
  • Oatmeal: In the winter, I eat a lot more oatmeal. Basically, if it’s warm, I’ll eat it in the winter. Instead of milk, I like adding the creamer for the extra collagen and fat.

In all, I like the creamer. Of the three flavors, the coconut creamer is my favorite. While of course, it can be put in coffee, there are many other ways to use it.

I am a Vital Proteins Ambassador, and in exchange for products, I share ways collagen has helped me.

Questions for you:

Have you tried collagen creamer before?

What is something you crave more in the winter?

For me, anything hot.

Bailey’s Creamer Waffle

I don’t know if I have ever mentioned how much I enjoy baileys creamer. Who was it that gave me this idea, I believe Irina? Well thank you. I took a few weeks off of boozy pancakes and waffles because I realized some people are not into adding lots of different booze to breakfast like myself…Because it isn’t like I go through coffee creamer fast enough without adding them to my waffles, so why not speed up the process of using up my creamers. (then I can go to the store every day!).
Baileys (Irish Cream) Waffle
2/3 cup flour
¼ cup dark cocoa powder
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder
1 tablespoon oil
1/4 cup Bailey’s irish cream (or whichever flavor you like)
¼ cup sweetener (I used truvia)
½ cup milk
Mix the wet ingredients then add dry ingredients. Pour into waffle maker.

With more syrup...

With more syrup…

For the topping glaze: (which is always the best part).  My “glaze” came out a bit more more creamy than a normal glaze I think.
2 tablespoons maple, sugar free or whatever syrup you like
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons Baileys cream
¼ cup sweetener (I used truvia actually)

I know I often say I have a new favorite pancake or waffle recipe (because in reality it seems like all my recipes I like)…well duh that is why I share them with you. These are really good and you can go so many different directions with them (with all the fancy creamers on the market).
Question for you: Favorite coffee creamer?
