WHY WE LOVE COLLAGEN PEPTIDES
Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body and the health benefits of supplementing with collagen are huge. As a major component of connective tissues that make up several body parts including tendons, ligaments, skin and muscles, collagen has been shown to improve skin structure and strengthen bones, while also having gut healing properties. Since collagen production tends to decline with age, we can make up for this by supplementing with high-quality, collagen supplements and our favorite is none other than the variety offered by Primal Kitchen!
Their unflavored bovine collagen peptide powder contains only high-quality bovine collagen peptides, with 10g of type 1 and 3 collagen to support hair, skin, and nails. Sugar free, Whole30 Approved®, and made without dairy, whey, or soy ingredients, these peptides are Keto Certified and Paleo Friendly.
Offering a wide range of Whole30 Approved sauces, dressings, mayos, and more, we jumped at the chance to play in our test kitchen with these Whole30 Approved Unflavored Collagen Peptides. The results were not only tasty but will also give you the collagen you may be lacking, one sip at a time in this fall beverage that's sure to satisfy that PSL craving. Here's our proven Pumpkin Spice Collagen Smoothie recipe that we know you're going to love.
This recipe combines our favorite flavors of fall into one high-protein, high fiber, deliciously velvety smoothie that'll easily become a go-to for you whether your fueling post-workout or just need a healthy serving of vitamins and minerals. Collagen peptides increase protein without altering the taste or flavor of other ingredients. Without any added sweetener, ripe bananas and mellow pumpkin provide just the right balance of flavor, while flax seeds increase fiber and pumpkin spice add the holiday vibes you're craving. Give this delightfully indulgent smoothie recipe a try!

We decided to put a fun fall twist on this unflavored collagen recipe, but this flavorless peptide powder can be added into any sauces, soups, or beverages as needed. You can also see how we used these collagen peptides on our easy recipe for Strawberry Collagen Jam.
