This Dirt Cup recipe makes for a complete throwback to a favorite dessert of the 90s and early 2000s. Let’s get started!

Dirt Cup

Yields 1 


  • 2 scoops Vital Proteins® Chocolate Collagen Peptides

  1. In a high speed blender, blend together the almond milk, avocado chunks, maple syrup, cocoa powder and Chocolate Collagen Peptides.
