It boasts some promising beauty benefits, too, making this frappe a triple threat: It delivers on simplicity, taste, and skin-healthy ingredients.* After all, collagen supplements have been shown to support skin hydration and smooth the appearance of fine lines by supporting your cell's fibroblasts (or what makes collagen and elastin naturally).* Not to mention mindbodygreen's beauty & gut collagen+ contains far more than the collagen peptides, such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, E, biotin, turmeric, SGS, and L-glutamine.*

The chocolate option, however, is particularly lovely for coffee blends. Here's why: This contains two key plant ingredients—organic cocoa and organic monk fruit—for subtle sweetness and rich taste. It's a decadent flavor, without tasting too saccharine.

Feel free to get creative with the proportions in this recipe, depending on how strong you like your coffee. Sweet or strong, your chocolate collagen frappe is up to you! Below, you'll find a general guideline:

Chocolate Collagen Frappe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup chilled coffee (this will come out best if you brew your coffee in advance!)
  • ¼ cup milk of your choice (I like oat milk, but almond, coconut, or cow's milk will all work)
  • ⅓ cup coconut cream 
  • 1 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • 1½ cups ice cubes (if you like your frappe frothier, use more ice cubes!)
  • 1 scoop mbg beauty & gut chocolate collagen+
  • If the above blend doesn't taste sweet enough, you can add additional sweetener (like monk fruit extract or coconut sugar) to taste

Method:

  • Place all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth—enjoy!
