Hey Friends! You guys know that we are big time coffee lovers over here at The Curvy Fashionista. Like BIIIIIG time lovers of coffee. When we heard about collagen infused coffee by Bulletproof coffee, we had to investigate. I mean, who doesn’t want to look younger while you sip your favorite blend, amiright?
Don’t judge me, but I’ve done the collagen in my coffee and let me tell you, it’s random, weird, and surprisingly good. Add to the fact that it is hella nutritious? Girl… mindblown.
In fact, a recent study found that coffee can actually help you live longer! Y’all, I’ll be living for.ev.er with my love for this warm cup of deliciousness. Ok, I’m lying. I have kids, so my coffee isn’t normally warm by the time I get to it, but you know what I mean!
What’s The Deal With Coffee Infused with Collagen?
Let’s chat a little about why this is even a thing. Did you know that collagen is good for more than just wrinkles? Yep! It is! Collagen is really great for joint health as well. If you or family members have issues with arthritis, I’m sure this is something you’re already familiar with. But collagen is also really helpful with digestive issues like a leaky gut!
Clearly collagen wanted to up it’s level of benefits by being added to coffee. We’re here for it!
Over at Bulletproof Coffee, they share a few of their own benefits of Coffee Infused with Collagen!
Bulletproof Coffee with collagen protein is delicious coffee plus grass-fed butter and Bulletproof Brain Octane oil — extracted from the most potent part of the coconut–to power your brain and body, with grass-fed collagen protein added for strong muscles and healthy skin.
So how does this work exactly?
Excellent question! You can buy the powdered version of collagen (my favorite brand is Vital Protein) and just put a scoop into your coffee. It’s tasteless so you don’t have to worry about your beloved cup of Joe being tainted in anyway. It has the consistency of a powdered creamer. Once you add your scoop, make your coffee per normal and enjoy the benefits!
Orrrrrrr, you can just score a cold brew at Bulletproof.com!
I found my coffee to be creamier than normal so this is something to keep in mind when making your cup. I take my coffee sweet and creamy so this just took my coffee to the next level of happiness, to be honest.
What is collagen?
It’s ok if this is one of the questions swimming around your head. In theory, I knew what it was, but it someone were to ask me to describe it in detail prior to writing this, I would have come up pretty empty handed! But because Google is my friend, I’ve got you covered with the deets *wink wink*.
Collagen is an animal byproduct. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, this is something important to note. There are some plant-based powders that are available. But ultimately, collagen is a protein.
So let’s talk about it friends! Are you ready to try a bit of collagen in your coffee?
Don’t forget: Pinning is sexy!
