We love a recipe that saves us time, tastes delicious, and provides us with nourishing energy to start our day, and this beauty smoothie does just that! Made with Copina Co. Cacao Calm Plant-Based Collagen Boost, this vegan Cold Brew & Cacao Beauty Smoothie is a perfect way to combine your morning coffee with breakfast if you need a yummy meal to take on the go, but we also love it as a mid-morning snack or post-workout treat for a little extra energy kick. Besides, who turns down an opportunity to have chocolate for breakfast? Definitely not us!
Our Cold Brew & Cacao Beauty Smoothie tastes like a perfect combination of a creamy chocolate milkshake and your favorite iced mocha, but made with no added sugar and superfood ingredients that include stress-fighting organic KSM-66 Ashwagandha root extract and mood-boosting cacao.* Caffeine not your thing? No problem! Simply swap the recommended cold brew for decaf or omit altogether. Our Cacao Calm Plant-Based Collagen Boost has no caffeine but is full of nourishing plant botanical extracts to support increased collagen production for vibrant hair, skin, and nails.* It adds a delicious chocolatey flavor but without any refined sugars, gums, or stabilizers.
Love this recipe and want to try another? Here are a few of our recent favorites:
A delicious way to welcome fall! Creamy pumpkin cold foam is poured over our Cacao Calm Plant-Based Collagen Boost and warming spices for a perfectly seasonal latte that will save you the trip to the drive-through!
Ok, so maybe we have a thing for adding a beauty boost to our breakfast! This is less of a recipe and more of a genius idea (created by @matchaandmoi on Instagram). Simply add in a scoop of our Matcha Plant-Based Collagen Boost Latte Blend to your favorite milk and froth before pouring over your favorite cereal or granola. Breakfast + Caffeine + Beauty Boost = Perfection!
Mood Boosting Double Chocolate Banana Bread
This delicious vegan banana bread is healthy enough to have for breakfast but tasty enough to have for dessert, too. Made without oil or refined sugar, it gets its mood-boosting benefits from the cacao and ashwagandha in our Cacao Calm Plant-Based Collagen Boost, but also packs in some healthy fats from walnuts, too.
Tropical Matcha Collagen Boost Smoothie
Looking for another way to combine your caffeine fix with breakfast or a snack? Well if you’re a matcha lover, this smoothie is for you! Our Matcha Plant-Based Collagen Boost Latte Blend provides the caffeine and plant botanicals, plus L-Theanine to prevent a caffeine crash later. We also added lots of tasty tropical fruit and a few veggies for extra vitamins and minerals, too!
6oz cold brew coffee
1 frozen banana

2 scoops Copina Co. Cacao Calm Plant-Based Collagen Boost
1 tsp peanut butter
4 oz almond milk (or less for thicker smoothie)
