I started drinking collagen coffee over 3 years ago when I started trying to lose weight after I had my son. It became a part of my morning routine and it wasn’t long until I started noticing the many different health benefits. The biggest impact was on my joints. My knees are awful, and the collagen in my coffee made a huge difference in the pain and tension I was experiencing daily. I was hooked.
I get asked about collagen and about how I make my coffee all the time, so I thought I would share how easy it is to make it!
My husband and I got hooked on French pressed coffee when we were visiting Poland, so it is what we use almost everyday. We also have a small coffee pot that I love as well. Any fresh brewed coffee will work. I have tried multiple brands of collagen peptides, but I ended up going back to Vital Proteins. I believe it is the highest quality and I experience the most benefits from it.
I keep the rest pretty simple. I put the fresh coffee in a large measuring glass because I use my immersion blender to mix it all up and I need a large glass that won’t overflow. I add my ghee right into the hot coffee first so it will melt. Then I add in my favorite NutPods creamer and a scoop (sometimes 2) of collagen. I blend it all up, pour it in my cup and add a sprinkle of cinnamon!
Some More Ways I Like To Switch It Up:
- Sometimes I also add coconut oil or MCT oil, but I usually only do this when I am Intermittent Fasting
- I also love to use KerryGold grass fed butter in place of ghee
- Add some nutmeg and ginger with the cinnamon for more of a ‘chai-like’ taste
- If I want a little sweetness, I love a little maple syrup
- I also love the different Vital Proteins Collagen Creamers
- NutPods has multiple flavors, I love to try the seasonal ones when they are out. Like Pumpkin Spice, but my fave is always the French Vanilla.
