Collagen and Fruit Smoothie

June 27 2017

Try this healthy fruit and collagen smoothie!

Collagen makes up more than 70 percent of the body’s cartilage and 90 percent of the body's tendons and ligaments. Getting older means that the body produces less natural collagen.

Consider supplementing with California Gold Nutrition CollagenUP which contains enzymatically hydrolyzed fish collagen peptides. It also has hyaluronic acid and vitamin C for an immune system boost.

This supplement is easy to mix into juice, water or a smoothie. Drink this smoothie for breakfast, as a meal on the go or to refuel after a long workout.

Ingredients:

12 ice cubes
1 scoop California Gold Nutrition CollagenUP
1/2 cup almond, coconut, soy or dairy milk
1/2 cup Greek yogurt, plain, vanilla or berry flavor
1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1/4 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
1/2 banana

Put all ingredients into the blender in the order listed. Pulse for 10 seconds at a time until well-mixed. This recipe makes a 12-ounce smoothie for one person.
