Collagen-Protein French Vanilla Latte Recipe & Giveaway

Do you guys remember when I told you about the collagen chocolates (yum) and keratin pills I was able to try out from NeoCell last month?  I mentioned that the capsules were a bit large for me, so NeoCell reached out to see if I would like them to send me a set of liquid and powder supplements instead.  Yep, I’m totally onboard for this one.  Here’s why collagen is awesome for your body:

First, I added the Hyaluronic Acid Blueberry Liquid to my water.  First thing in the morning, I had a glass of super-cold ice water with the blueberry liquid in it.  It tasted just like the regular flavorings you can buy for water, but had the benefits of the Hyaluronic Acid.  It’s like giving myself lotion on the inside of the skin to keep it healthy from inside out.  It’s also great for lubricating my joints now that I’m starting to feel pretty old.  (Knees should not pop at 25, guys.)  This was also great to add into my iced green tea with a little honey later in the afternoon.  Because it’s neither too sweet or bitter, there are a lot of possibilities to add it into your everyday routine.

Next was the Collagen Sport powder.  The fact that it was French Vanilla instantly made me think “latte’, so that’s exactly what I prepared it as.  I made two lattes in the morning and split the daily dose of the powder between the two.  Most of the protein or supplement powders that I’ve tried required a shaker or blender because otherwise it was like having wet sand floating in your drink.  This sport formula is a really fine powder that you can mix into a warm liquid with just your spoon.  This stuff has more than just collagen in it, more nutrients than I could even list here for you, which I wasn’t expecting.  It’s also important to note that because of all of the proteins and goodies in it, it’s not calorie free.  Definitely take that into consideration as you take it.  The taste was pretty spot-on as far as what I expected.  It’s not super-sweet like a coffee creamer but it doesn’t have that “protein powder” aftertaste either.
