We love making pancakes on a Sunday morning. They are such a fun treat to celebrate the end of one week and the beginning of a new one! Sometimes we like to add different flavors to our pancakes and we thought why not combine our morning matcha with our pancakes.
Our Matcha pancakes are incredibly easy to make but still delicious and nutritious. Choose your pancake mix of choice, add in our Matcha Plant-Based Collagen Boost Drink Blend, a flax egg, and some plant-based butter. Whisk all together and boom, you have a beauty-boosting pancake mix ready to be cooked.
Our collagen boost blends bring many benefits due to our plant-based ingredients, but our matcha blend also offers its own benefits due to its main ingredient: Matcha!
Matcha green tea, unlike regular green tea, is grown in the shade rather than in the sun, enabling it to develop higher chlorophyll levels which give it its vibrant color. One cup contains about ¼ of the caffeine of a cup of coffee and helps the person enjoying it get a steady energy boost without the crash.* Matcha is also rich in L-Theanine, an amino acid that works to promote brain function, concentration, and a sense of calmness without nervous energy or jitters.* L-Theanine can also work to reduce anxiety because of the high and raw amounts that are found in matcha.*
Not only will our pancakes be giving all the benefits of matcha, but they also will be supporting your hair, skin, and nails! Our vegan collagen blends are filled with amazing ingredients like Biotin and Hyaluronic Acid that can help support your body's natural collagen production.
Each Copina Co. blend contains 3,000mcg Biotin per serving. That amounts to over 10,000% of your daily value.* This dosage of biotin has been shown to be an effective therapy for human patients with brittle nails.
Our cells produce hyaluronic acid to balance moisture levels in our bodies, but make less of it as we age.* Our food grade hyaluronic acid helps to boost collagen production in our bodies and help our skin attract and retain moisture, helping with aging*. It’s also been shown to help smooth wrinkles, boost elasticity, help with skin firmness and boost skin radiance.*
