I love my daily cup of coffee. I usually make an additional one or two cups to keep me going on busy days. The one negative, however, is the crash that follows a few hours later. Luckily, I was able to find a drink that combats that negative factor while also providing a sufficient energy boost. This is due to the addition of Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer® in Mocha, which is free of gluten, dairy and added sweeteners, and contains energy-boosting MCTs.
I coined this drink my Superfood Iced Mocha because it combines three superstar ingredients: maca, ashwagandha, and our Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer® in Mocha. They all provide sustained energy over a period of time, so there’s no need to worry about mid-afternoon caffeine crashes!
Our Mocha Collagen Creamer gives this drink that decadent mocha flavor without the added sugars. It also has a good dosage of healthy fats and contains 10g of collagen per serving to help support stronger hair, skin, nails, and joints.
So, next time you need to get through the day, skip the coffee and reach for this drink instead!
