Hydrating Collagen Water

Hydrating Collagen Water

This has become my favorite way to drink Vital Proteins. I started doing this when Nate and I went to San Diego. It seemed like the perfect to get some extra protein and vitamin C when traveling, which is much needed because our children sleep terribly on vacation. Now I drink it daily! I love this because it’s super refreshing, hydrating, requires zero equipment, and gives me a much needed vitamin C boost.

Vital Proteins backstory: while pregnant with Millie, I noticed how terrible my nails were. Chipping off and thin as could be. So, I decided to try collagen to help. And WOW. It actually worked. Like within a month my nails were growing and as strong as ever. I was convinced and have used it ever since. I try and buy it at Costco (that’s the best price around for Vital Proteins) and when it is no longer there I will likely subscribe on their website. All that to say, I love it!

Now, back to the…

HYDRATING COLLAGEN WATER

YOU WILL NEED:

  • 1 scoop vital proteins
  • 12 oz. room temp water
  • 12 oz. coconut water
  • 1 packet Emergen-C (I like raspberry and orange the best)
  • tons of ice

TO MAKE:

  1. Start with the 12 ounces of water and the @vitalproteins and shake it violently in my water bottle till it’s nice and mixed (I use room temp water to help it mix up well).
  2. Add the coconut water and @emergenc and shake again. Lastly, I add a ton of ice.

 

NOTES:

Truth be told, I don’t measure the water amounts at all, just do half of each, but put them for those that love measurements. Also, you don’t have to use coconut water! I just love it. Feel free to use all regular water if you like. You can also leave out the emergen-C and just do water, coconut water, and collagen.

I make three of these at a time and store in the fridge. Simply add ice when it’s time to drink it. This is the first thing I have most mornings when I do my morning workout.

 

Just a little idea if your needing some extra hydration on these hot summer days. It is so refreshing!
