    Thanks to viral videos and TikTok trends, beauty smoothies have become a popular way to pack in nutrients and skin-friendly ingredients. But if you don’t live near a cafe that sells them (or don’t want to splurge on the pricey sweet treat) there’s an easier and more budget-friendly way to help your skin glow and make your taste buds happy. Here’s our recipe for an easy collagen smoothie that you can make at home with easily accessible ingredients. This smoothie is a perfect addition to your morning routine, offering a refreshing start to your day.


    • 1 cup coconut water
    • 1/2 cup almond milk
    • 1 scoop Alaya Naturals Multi Collagen Powder 
    • 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries (such as blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries)
    • 1/2 frozen banana
    • 1 tablespoon almond butter
    • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
    • 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup (optional, for added sweetness)
    • Ice cubes (optional, for desired consistency)


    1. Prepare Your Ingredients: Gather all your ingredients and ensure your blender is ready to go.
    2. Combine Liquids: Pour your coconut water and almond milk into the blender.
    3. Add Collagen: Scoop in your Alaya collagen powder. Collagen is an ideal addition to any wellness routine, especially for those over 30.
    4. Add Fruits and Nut Butters: Drop in the frozen berries, banana, almond butter, and chia seeds. These ingredients not only enhance flavor but also provide essential vitamins, minerals, protein, and healthy fats. (Alaya’s Collagen also has 8g of protein!)
    5. Sweeten (if desired): Include honey, agave, or maple syrup for an extra touch of sweetness, depending on your taste preferences.
    6. Blend Until Smooth: Secure the lid and blend on high until the mixture reaches a smooth, creamy consistency. If you prefer a thicker smoothie, add ice cubes gradually until you achieve the desired texture.
    7. Serve and Enjoy: Pour your collagen smoothie into a tall glass. Consider garnishing with additional berries or a sprinkle of chia seeds for an Instagram-worthy presentation.

    Benefits Of A Collagen Smoothie

    • Collagen Benefits: As we age, collagen production naturally declines. By incorporating collagen into your diet, you can help maintain youthful skin and support joint health.
    • Nutrient-Rich Ingredients: From antioxidant-rich berries to potassium-packed bananas and omega-3-loaded chia seeds, each component of this smoothie offers essential nutrients that contribute to overall well-being.
    • Customizable: Whether you prefer a dairy-free option with almond milk or crave the tropical twist of coconut water, this recipe allows for flexibility in ingredients, ensuring it aligns with your dietary preferences.

    By starting your day with this nutrient-packed elixir, you're setting the stage for a day filled with energy. Your body—and your taste buds—will thank you!
