Blueberry Crisp Smoothie

This Blueberry Crisp Smoothie is like having dessert for breakfast, and it also contains an anti-aging collagen supplement with SO many health benefits!
Blueberry Crisp SmoothieToday I am very excited to share another smoothie recipe with you all! If you’ve hung around this blog for at least a little while you might already know how crazy I am about smoothies. They are my official default quick/healthy/on-the-go breakfast, and they are a TOTAL morning life saver on those crazy days when I would probably otherwise skip breakfast (which I have notoriously been known to do). For shame! I know. I have a tendency to just wake up and start working, and then I can’t seem to tear myself away until I am literally STARVING and HAVE to stop and eat. Are any of you like that too?

Blueberry Crisp SmoothieIf so, smoothies are just the thing for you because they are so non-fuss. They take about 1 1/2 minutes from start to finish, and in some cases you can even drink them out of the glass they were blended up in, which means minimal dishes! The trick for me is constantly playing around with new flavor combinations so that I never get bored- some of my favorites are my Paradise Protein Smoothie and my Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie Bowl. But today we are talking Blueberry Crisp Smoothie, and doesn’t it just sound to die for?

Blueberry Crisp Smoothie

Well, it is. It’s like having dessert for breakfast, which is awesome. But the even more awesome thing about this Blueberry Crisp Smoothie is the insane amount of health benefits going on inside! This is mostly thanks to an anti-aging dietary supplement from Vital Proteins that I will probably now be adding to ALL my future morning shakes and smoothies. When they sent me some of their Collagen Peptides to try out in recipes I was amazed to discover all the health (and beauty!) factors that are addressed when you incorporate a collagen supplement into your diet, such as:

  • Youthful skin
  • Healthier hair
  • Stronger nails
  • Strong, healthy bones
  • Joint health
  • Immune health
  • Digestive support
  • Weight maintenance

Blueberry Crisp Smoothie Pretty dang cool, right? Without getting too deep into the scientific stuff, collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body. It plays a major role in the musculoskeletal system, as well as our bodies’ mobility and elasticity, so taking a naturally derived collagen peptide supplement is a v good idea if you are into taking care of your tendons, joints, cartilage, skin and bones.

Blueberry Crisp SmoothieVital Proteins sources its all-natural collagen peptides from pasture raised, grass fed cows, which I like very much. Some other things I like very much about Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides are that it’s completely flavorless and virtually undetectable in recipes, making it the perfect supplement to add to all kinds of smoothies, soups and so many other things. And it doesn’t alter the consistency of whatever you add it to- sometimes I’ll just add a scoop or two to a glass of water and it’s like I’m drinking a little beauty/youth elixir!

Blueberry Crisp SmoothieI’ve only been taking the collagen peptides for a few weeks now, but I’m excited to see if I’ll notice a difference in the health of my hair/skin/nails/digestion/etc. I’ll be sure to report back! Have you ever taken a collagen supplement? Let me know in the comments! And If you make this Blueberry Crisp Smoothie be sure to share it on Instagram with the hashtag #LePetitEats, I love seeing your creations!
