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…
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!
