Who doesn't love a tasty frozen dessert on a hot summer day? If you're looking for a treat with a little more nutritional pizzazz, a homemade ice pop is sure to satisfy—specifically when it's packed with one hidden healthy ingredient: collagen powder.

My antioxidant-rich watermelon, blueberry & collagen ice pop.

For this recipe, watermelon acts as a hydrating and antioxidant-rich base. In fact, watermelon contains lycopene (an antioxidant also found in tomatoes), which can help to protect your cells from oxidative stress.

Beyond delicious and nutritious watermelon, these pops also feature blueberries and collagen powder, which both elevate the antioxidant perks. That's because in addition to collagen peptides, mbg's beauty & gut collagen+ contains an array of other beauty and gut-centric bioactives and micronutrients, to promote glowing skin, strong hair and nails, and gut health (including antioxidant vitamins C and E, plus turmeric and broccoli extracts).* Not to mention, blueberries are naturally rich in anthocyanins and vitamin C, a water-soluble nutrient that supports collagen production in the body.*

In other words, even though these pops have a simple ingredient list, all the components work harmoniously together.

Enjoy these pops poolside for a hydrating and cooling treat that you can rest assured will provide your body with some wonderful, nourishing ingredients.
