The addition of marine collagen powder is optional, but research suggests that adding collagen supplements or powders into your daily diet may enhance skin health.
Collagen is the body's most abundant protein, made up of amino acids, or peptides.
It literally glues our bones, cartilage, skin, and blood vessels together and makes up about 75% of the dry weight of your skin,
When it comes to skin health, collagen provides the volume that keeps skin looking plump and healthy, and helps to keep aging lines at bay.
Including collagen supplements or powders into your diet can help to increase the levels of collagen in the body, promoting healthier and smoother skin.
Whether you add collagen or not, either way, the antioxidants from the raspberries and peaches will help to fight those nasty free-radicals that contribute to poor skin health.
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
- 1 fresh peach, chopped
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/4 cup vanilla greek yogurt
- 1 cup of vanilla almond milk
- 1 teaspoon of marine collagen powder (optional)
- 1 tablespoon of maple syrup (optional, if additional sweetness is desired)
Blend all ingredients together in a high-powdered blender, and enjoy!
