Collagen seems to be the new IT girl, and honestly, I’m here for it. However, when you hear about collagen, you typically hear how people add it to their coffee or their smoothies.
Since I’m not much of a coffee drinker, and I prefer to chew my fruits and veggies over having them in a smoothie, I have to get creative when I add collagen to my diet.
Lately, my obsession has been green tea infused with different fruits and herbs. Since it’s mango season, and everyone knows my infinity for mangos, I figured why not add the two together and throw in some mint for some freshness!? Great idea on my part for sure!
What I typically do is brew a big batch of green tea, add in the collagen peptides when it’s still warm, and keep it in my fridge til I’m ready to have my ice mango mint green tea. It seriously comes together so quickly.
This mango mint green tea is a great way for me sneak in some collagen. If you haven’t jumped on the collagen peptide bandwagon, I highly suggest you do.
I personally love Bare Bones 100% Grass-fed Collagen Peptides because it easily dissolves in hot or cold liquids. It’s flavorless. It’s super affordable. And of course, it has so many benefits. You can read some of the benefits here.
Be sure to stay hydrated this summer and get in the extra protein from collagen!
