But they aren't just a beautiful sweet treat to indulge in; they also contain amino acids, antioxidants, and healthy fats. You see, the star ingredient is mindbodygreen's chocolate beauty & gut collagen+, a hydrolyzed collagen powder that supports strong hair and nails.* Studies have also shown that collagen supplements can support skin elasticity and overall hydration, meaning fewer fine lines with firmer, more supple skin.* This premium collagen blend also contains vitamin C and vitamin E, meaning there's extra antioxidant support for your whole body.* Additionally it contains turmeric, biotin, SGS, L-glutamine, and hyaluronic acid for additional skin and all-over benefits.*

Oh, we'd be remiss not to mention the flavor of the powder: It's made with organic cocoa and organic monk fruit extract, making the taste rich and sweet, but never saccharine.

This so-simple recipe yields a rich, decadent dessert with a beauty-enhancing twist—what more could you want?*
