I've been playing around with the idea for this recipe for a while, tweaking and drinking and tweaking some more. When Vital Proteins sent me a crap ton of Collagen Peptides, I knew I was going to secure this recipe once and for all!
I like sipping on this during a morning workout and it's great to make quickly and take on the go in the morning. It provides a host of health benefits, from the gut healing of the collagen to the multivitamin effects of the egg. I just love it so much and I'm glad I finally got a winner combination to make it!
