How To Make A Refreshing Collagen Powder Smoothie Bowl
Right about now, we're all craving a bit of tropical vacation, no? As the summer days roll along, and travel is at a standstill (more or less), a far away getaway seems out of the question. It may not a one way ticket to white sand and ocean waves, but this smoothie bowl is about as refreshing as a beachside vacation; with one bite, you'll practically feel a warm breeze through your hair and your complexion start to illuminate.
Well, the latter might not be in your imagination. This bowl is filled with good-for-skin ingredients thanks to mbg's grass-fed collagen+.* Collagen is the oh-so-important structural protein that keeps our skin looking firm yet supple. But collagen starts declining as we age, as well as due to things like oxidative stress.

The one-step beauty routine for youthful skin, healthy hair & strong nails.*
That's why adding a collagen supplement to your skin care routine is such a vital part of your overall skin care goals: Your body is able to benefit from hydrolyzed collagen supplements, where the amino acids (or, what makes up collagen supplements) travel all over providing your cells with essential nutrients.* In the case of the skin, it's been shown in clinical studies that collagen supplements are able to promote collagen and elastin production, as well as maintaining healthy moisture levels and smoothing fine lines.*
Pretty impressive skin care benefits considering all you had to do was add two scoops to a smoothie bowl.
The below recipe is so you can follow along with the video, but just know if you don't have all the same toppings or would rather swap in another frozen fruit, by all means! Think of this as a guided suggestion, which you can riff off of. The real mainstay is the power-packed collagen powder; as long as you've got your two scoops of that? You can glow on.
