ICYMI: Vital Proteins Collagen Lattes™ are officially here! Aside from whipping up delicious latte recipes with our new fab flavor foursome, we’ve also been fielding questions from prospective Vital Proteins users about our newest launch. The most notable question on the list: What is the difference between the Collagen Lattes and Vital Proteins’ already-established line of Collagen Creamer™supplements? Both promise a creamy consistency, collagen’s slew of health benefits, and powerhouse ingredients but there are key differences to consider – the main one being their primary purpose.
Let’s Talk Vital Proteins Collagen Creamers™
Our Collagen Creamer™ supplement has always been viewed as coffee’s BFF, a better-for-you substitute since, unlike other add-ons, this particular creamer is free of added sugars, dairy, and gluten. Just add two scoops of the collagen powder to your hot morning beverage, stir, and enjoy! For a cold beverage, fill your glass 1/4 of the way with hot liquid and mix for 30 seconds, top with ice and continue to add liquid such as coffee or tea.
Available in Coconut, Vanilla, Mocha and Gingerbread flavors, this product contains 10g of collagen peptides – sourced from the hides of bovine – per serving. Our Collagen Creamer also offers energy-boosting MCTs and healthy fats from the organic coconut milk powder. (Keto lovers are big fans!)
Do you like to get creative in the kitchen? Don’t limit yourself to just coffee and incorporate our Collagen Creamer to your favorite baking recipes. There are so many unexpected ways to use the fan-favorite product.
Let’s Talk Vital Proteins Collagen Lattes
Available in four flavors – Cocoa Caramel, Hot Cocoa, Madagascar Vanilla, and Golden Milk – each one of our dairy-free Collagen Lattes contains 10g of bone broth collagen, 50mg of hyaluronic acid (HA), 1g of sugar per serving from whole-food ingredients, and 600mg of ashwagandha root extract, an adaptogenic herb that helps to promote a healthy response to stress and supports normal levels of mental clarity.** Our Madagascar Vanilla and Golden Milk flavors are caffeine-free while our Cocoa Caramel and Hot Cocoa flavors only contain 5-10mg of naturally-occurring caffeine from cocoa.
Whether you prefer your latte hot or iced, this fabulous foursome truly delivers no matter your temp preference. Like it hot? Simply add two scoops of the Collagen Latte powder to hot water or your milk of choice, mix, and enjoy. Can’t get enough iced lattes? Add two scoops to a glass that's 1/4th filled with hot water or milk. Mix for 30 seconds, top with ice and continue to add coffee.
Not only is each unique flavor deliciously comforting, but it’s also healthy thanks to the powerhouse ingredients (like the turmeric found in the Golden Milk Collagen Latte) present in each Collagen Latte. You’ll never feel guilty about enjoying a latte again.
Excluding Golden Milk, which is sourced from organic free-range chickens, all our other Collagen Lattes are sourced from bovine hide.
Collagen Latte™ vs Collagen Creamer™: What’s the Difference?
In terms of ingredients, both products contain organic coconut milk powder, making them dairy-free products and healthier alternatives to their mainstream counterparts. Our Collagen Creamer™ is typically added to coffee while our Collagen Latte™ may replace your favorite morning, midday, or evening beverage.
Their sourcing is also different as our Collagen Creamer™ contains collagen peptides, which helps to promote stronger hair, skin, nails and joints.** Our Collagen Lattes contains bone broth collagen. Bone broth contains naturally occurring chondroitin sulfate, which is found in bones and cartilage, and hyaluronic acid, which is found in the synovial fluid of the joints and skin, for an added boost in bone health.
Choosing your best fit comes down to personal preference. If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to your regular creamer, consider our Collagen Creamers™. Searching for a standalone drink to swap the sugar-loaded beverage you can’t get enough of? Try out our decadent line of Collagen Lattes™.
