So, I receive a lot of questions about the collagen (and sometimes protein powder) that I add to my daily glass of iced coffee. It’s a great (and easy!) way to add some extra protein to my diet and collagen has SO MANY awesome health benefits!
Can collagen mix with coffee?
How much collagen do you add to coffee?
How do you add collagen to coffee?
These are all great questions, so let me answer them for you! 🙂
Yes, you can absolutely mix collagen with coffee – both hot and cold coffee and other liquids. I typically add half to one full scoop (10g) of collagen, but you could totally add more/less depending on your personal preferences. I’ll often mix a scoop of collagen AND a scoop of protein powder into my iced coffee, and they mix right in, no problem. Here’s how I do it…
Here’s a quick tutorial:
- Grab a shaker bottle
- Pour in some iced coffee
- Add a scoop of collagen
- Pour in more iced coffee and/or milk/cream
No shaker? Just mix the collagen with a little warm water until fully blended and THEN add your iced coffee.
This morning, I had the opportunity to work out at KFIT – possibly my last workout at the old location!
KFIT is moving to a new location (right near the Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham) in just a few weeks. I got to see the new space this morning, and it’s going to be INCREDIBLE!!! I’ll keep you guys in the loop about the grand opening!
After a quick shower, I drank a protein shake and snacked on some carrot sticks on my way to the current unofficial DTFN office to get some work done for the day.
Now, it’s time for lots-o-work! And, unrelated, I can’t wait to see my boys tonight for our Valentine’s Day celebration!
Question of the Day
Have you hopped on the collagen trend?
