Superfood Green Pops using Vital Proteins’ Collagen Beauty Greens
If you’ve read one of my all time most popular posts, 9 Reasons Why I Eat Gelatin Daily, then you already know that I am a big fan of gelatin from healthy, pasture-raised animals!

- Gelatin is good for bone & joint health
- Gelatin supports the digestive system
- Gelatin can aid in weight loss
- Gelatin can help calm the body and balance cortisol levels
- Gelatin can help improve skin, wrinkles and cellulite
- Gelatin can improve hair, nails and even teeth!
I usually just add a scoop of Vital Proteins’ Collagen Peptides to my tea or coffee every morning. It has no flavor and it stirs right in! I’ve been really happy with this routine for the last couple of years.
But I recently discovered Vital Proteins’ Collagen Beauty Greens and I couldn’t resist. They just had to mention Beauty and they got my attention. 😉
All jokes aside, what really got my attention was the amount of nutrients packed in a scoop of this stuff!
Vital Proteins Collagen Beauty Greens
This nourishing elixir combines marine collagen peptides (from wild-caught snapper in the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii) with raw organic greens, hyaluronic acid, and probiotics.
It offers a natural coconut vanilla flavor made from organic coconut water and the finest Madagascar vanilla beans.
KEY BEAUTY BENEFITS:
- Promotes collagen formation
- Helps prevent the signs of aging
- Improves skin smoothness
- Increases skin moisture
- Revitalizes skin tone
- Reduces fine lines
- Heals skin and reduces redness
To incorporate this into your diet daily, I recommend just stirring it into a liquid or adding it to a smoothie. But, for a fun treat, I created these Superfood Green Pops for you! These are tasty and refreshing! My 4 year old gobbled 2 in a row! Since there was no added sugar, I let her! 🙂
I like to use coconut milk in this recipe because the added fat will aid in absorbing more of the amazing vitamins available from all the greens in this mix!
