collagen blueberry smoothie

I've discussed collagen and gelatin in previous articles and recipes and will be posting an article relating specifically to collagen shortly. Collagen has made a significant difference in my life since the day I started using it. I can't say enough about it and would encourage everyone to incorporate it in their lives. Thrive Market has a variety of options for different collagen, if you'd like to check it out here

I've also discussed the benefit of blueberries in this page and whether or not you're using fresh or frozen is up to you. The only thing I  recommend is using organic. They really do make a difference in taste. I like frozen since it adds another layer of creaminess to the smoothie. And the other thing I like is just how easy it is to make!
