Start your morning on a vibrant note. We've got a little secret to share that's going to take your breakfast game up a notch.
It's the Banana Espresso Collagen Smoothie, straight from the kitchen of our very own Nutra Nourished influencer, Danica. Packed with natural goodness and the nourishing power of collagen peptides, this recipe is surely a mixed of joy and simplicity, plus a touch of indulgence.
- 1 frozen banana - the one that's been chillin' in your freezer!
- 1 shot of espresso
- 1 heaped tsp of cocoa
- 1 cup of coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon of Nutra Nourished Collagen Bovine
- Begin by peeling your ripe banana and slicing it before freezing it overnight. The frozen banana will give your smoothie a creamy and frosty texture.
- Brew a shot of espresso or your preferred strong coffee. If you don't have an espresso machine, a strong cup of black coffee will do the trick.
- In a blender, combine the frozen banana slices, freshly brewed espresso, cocoa, coconut milk, and collagen peptides.
- Blend the ingredients until the mixture is silky smooth and all components are well incorporated. You'll notice the heavenly aroma of coffee and cocoa filling the air.
- Pour your Banana Espresso Collagen Smoothie into a glass or jar. Feel free to add ice if you'd like it even frostier.
- For an extra flourish, you can sprinkle a pinch of cocoa on top or add a coffee bean for decoration.
