Like most people across the globe, I start my days with coffee. I know it exhausts my adrenal glands by triggering cortisol release, which will ultimately make me feel more sleepy over time. It's addictive and if I was at my healthiest, I wouldn't crave the caffeine boost. I hear ya. But sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
I used to get jittery when I drank a cup of coffee and crashed soon after I got my boost. Then, I discovered this amazing blended coffee recipe! It has healthy fats and protein, which help to ease the caffeine buzz. It gives me some sustenance when I'm running out the door, and even makes my skin look great!
Benefits of Collagen:

- Reduces wrinkles
- Strengthens joints
- High in Protein and Amino Acids
- Heals the lining of the gut
I love this recipe because the combo of collagen powder and coconut milk makes a frothy latte that makes me feel fancy when I'm bringing my coffee from home. I have been using Great Lakes Collagen which is tasteless, textureless, and dissolves perfectly in this drink. The small amount of honey is enough to give it a touch of sweetness, but has WAY less sugar than your typical Starbucks drink. I also add a tablespoon of the cream from the top of a can of coconut milk.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! Let me know how it turns out.
