Collagen Recipes with our Two New Flavors

July 28, 2020

It’s official: Thrive Market members are collagen obsessed. We can’t say this comes as a big surprise—after all, this collagen supplement dissolves easily into smoothies and lattes while delivering ample protein, and it’s known for giving your skin, nails, and hair a radiance boost, too. Whether you’re new to this promising powder or already a devoted fan, you’ll love what we’ve whipped up next—two new collagen flavors ready to amp up your supplement strategy every day of the week.

The Benefits of Collagen

Before you pick out your new favorite flavor, here’s the scoop on collagen. As a long-chain amino acid, collagen is the main protein found in our skin, hair, nails, bones, and connective tissue. Our bodies actually contain 16 different types of collagen, but the most abundant is Type I, stored in places like our bones, tendons, muscles, and digestive system.

Mammals naturally produce collagen and you can easily add it to your diet through cooking, which produces gelatin (one of the reasons bone broth is so popular!). Bovine collagen comes from cows and is typically what you find in supplements, while marine collagen (like salmon) is used in skin-care products. As for the potential benefits, studies have found that collagen may help improve joint health, digestion, sleep, and skin elasticity.


Meet Our Collagen Lineup

Our keto- and paleo-friendly collagen peptides are sourced from pasture-raised and grass-fed bovines who spend their days roaming the South American countryside. Unlike some cattle, ours are pastured year-round and aren’t fed grain in the winter months.

When it was time to start dreaming up exciting new flavor combos, Senior Director of Merchandising Christine McNerney shares, “We were so inspired to see our members using collagen in different recipes and wanted to create several new options. Matcha, in particular, has become really popular!” As for getting your daily serving (featuring 10g of protein), our gluten-free collagen powders easily dissolve into liquids and are ideal drink additions. “I love blending the mocha collagen into my iced coffee in the morning with some almond milk creamer,” McNerney says.

Grass-Fed Collagen Peptides, Mocha Caramel

Not only does our collagen promote healthier hair and skin, but the rich mocha and caramel flavor (sweetened with monk fruit) is destined to become your daily cuppa’s BFF.

Grass-Fed Collagen Peptides, Matcha Mint

Tea drinkers will swoon for our new Matcha Mint Collagen Peptides. Each serving delivers 10g of protein and offers a refreshing mint taste flavored with monk fruit for natural sweetness. Blend it into your morning latte!

Grass-Fed Collagen Peptides, Chocolate

Not sure if you’ll love collagen peptides? Take a cue from Minnesota-based Thrive Market member Allison who shares “This is my favorite collagen! It dissolves really well, and I use it in smoothies or add it to oatmeal.”

Grass-Fed Collagen Peptides, Vanilla

Dairy-free and non-GMO (just like all the collagen supplements we offer), it’s easy to add this elegant vanilla flavor to your routine. Member Amy in California writes “I love using this in smoothies and protein/energy balls. It’s very versatile and not overly sweet.”
