Recipes with Matcha Plant-Based Collagen Boost
This latte tastes like summer in a glass. The fresh, tangy taste of mango pairs perfectly with the earthy, floral taste of our Matcha Plant-Based Collagen Boost. Plus, the vibrant colors of this latte make it a pleasure to drink and to look at. Fresh or frozen mango both work in this recipe, just make sure to puree until smooth and creamy before adding ice and matcha.
Turmeric has long been hailed as a superfood for its anti-inflammatory benefits, and pairing it with matcha gives this latte a one-two punch of incredible benefits. The taste of turmeric is slightly herbal and earthy, so we like to add a touch of sweetness to this latte (honey, agave, or maple syrup are a few favorites).
Have you tried Boba Tea before? This drink is traditionally made with tea concentrate, condensed milk, tapioca pearls, and a lot of added sugar. We made a lighter, plant-based version of a Boba Tea Latte by combining Matcha Plant-Based Collagen Boost with plant milk, a touch of natural sweetener, and frozen blueberries that act as the boba pearls. It’s a delicious, fun twist on a classic boba latte!
If you’re skeptical about combining matcha and coffee in the same latte, then trust us on this one! This latte is a healthier spin on a Starbucks’ popular Brown Sugar Shaken Espresso. The rich, caramel taste of brown sugar perfectly complements the slightly bitter taste of espresso and the earthiness of matcha tea. Shaking the latte makes it super creamy and foamy. Don’t knock it till you try it!
Recipes with Cacao Calm Plant-Based Collagen Boost
Looking for a latte that helps you chill instead of makes you wired? Look no further. This creamy, dreamy latte is made with our Cacao Calm Plant-Based Collagen Boost that is formulated with ashwagandha and organic cacao powder to help manage stress and boost your mood, without any caffeine.
Tangy raspberry and rich, chocolatey cacao are the perfect pair in this latte! This is another spin on a classic boba tea latte, and we love how the raspberry adds a little texture and sweetness. Feel free to use fresh or frozen raspberries, both would be totally delicious in this latte. It’s a delightfully refreshing spring or summer drink!
The classic mocha gets a plant-based boost from our Cacao Calm Plant-Based Collagen Boost. Cacao Calm has no added sugar or artificial ingredients, but totally delivers on the rich, chocolatey taste you want when making a mocha. Simply make cold brew or a few shots of your favorite espresso, froth with Cacao Calm, and pour over ice and your favorite non-dairy milk (we like oat!). Sip in bliss.
Recipes with Vanilla Plant-Based Collagen Boost Blend
This recipe is sure to save you that expensive daily trip to the coffee shop for an oat milk latte. Packed with beauty-boosting plant botanicals and a light, creamy vanilla flavor, our Vanilla Plant-Based Collagen Boost Blend is your latte’s perfect match. Simply add a scoop to your plant milk before frothing, pour over coffee, and enjoy.
Say goodbye to your days of buying bottled coffee creamers with a dozen artificial ingredients you can’t pronounce. It’s super easy to whip up your own vanilla coffee creamer at home. Simply froth a scoop of sweet and creamy Vanilla Plant-Based Collagen Boost Blend into your favorite plant milk, then pour over coffee, tea, or anything else your heart desires. Skip the sugar and go straight for the superfoods.
If you’ve never added spirulina to a smoothie before, be prepared for its bright green color and amazing health benefits. Spirulina is a type of algae that gets you your greens, boosts antioxidants, and is packed with complete proteins and vitamin B-12, which is crucial if you follow a vegan diet. This smoothie has a bright, fresh taste from mint and is perfectly sweet thanks to frozen banana and cacao nibs. Yum!
Recipes with Original Plant-Based Collagen Boost
Your classic iced coffee is getting a beauty-boosting upgrade. Our Original Plant-Based Collagen Boost is packed with plant botanicals that support your body’s natural collagen production and preserve existing collagen, but in an unsweetened, unflavored powder that makes it incredibly versatile so you can add it to just about anything. We find it makes coffee creamier thanks to rice and coconut milk powder, and you can feel good knowing you’re supporting your internal health with every sip.
Banana bread has had a *moment* in the past year, but we promise this vegan and gluten-free version deserves a spot at the table. The addition of Original Plant-Based Collagen Boost means this tasty banana bread is practically an extension of your skincare routine, too.
This gorgeous blue latte contains the nutrient powerhouse blue spirulina (aka “blue majik”), which is naturally rich in antioxidants, chlorophyll, minerals, iron, vitamin K, and protein. Paired with our collagen-boosting blend of plant botanicals, inducing tremella mushroom, amla berry, hyaluronic acid, and bamboo extract, this latte is packs a totally delicious superfood punch, but without any caffeine so you can enjoy it whenever you need a beauty boost!
No matter what Plant-Based Collagen Boost blend you use, you can feel good knowing that you’re supporting your internal health. With no added sugar, artificial ingredients, or emulsifying agents, our blends are a nutritious and delicious alternative to animal-derived collagen products and a great way to support your hair, skin, and nail health by supporting your body’s natural collagen production process.
