CollogenI hope many of you were able to grab a bottle of the FM4L hydrolyzed collagen yesterday before it went out of stock–again! It came back in stock this morning, right here. I’ve been getting some requests for the recipes that we demonstrated in our recent videos. Click here to watch the videos if you missed them.

The first video is an interview with Tracie Fountain, our nutritional expert, with all of the details about collagen and what it can do for you. The second is our first-ever cooking video, where we make a some great smoothies. =) Below are the recipes for the three smoothies we featured. Enjoy!

Amazon has the collagen back in stock right now, but it is going in and out of stock quickly. Click here to buy now on Amazon! Remember to use the code FM4LVIPS for your $8 discount.

Strawberry Mango Smoothie (Note: this is a great basic fruit smoothie recipe and follows the proportions we mentioned in our video. Feel free to substitute your favorite fruits!)

  • 1 c water (or coconut milk, coconut water, etc)
  • ½ c plain yogurt (omit for dairy-free option)
  • ½ frozen banana
  • 1 c frozen mango chunks
  • 5 large strawberries
  • 1 scoop hydrolyzed collagen
  • Cinnamon, to taste (optional)

Blend and enjoy!

Tropical Green Smoothie

  • 1-2 c spinach (start with 1 cup if you are new to green smoothies)
  • 1 c liquid, add more if you like a thinner smoothie (coconut water, coconut milk, water, etc)
  • 1 c frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 frozen banana (1 banana if you prefer it sweeter)
  • 1 scoop hydrolyzed collagen
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Stevia to taste (optional, if you prefer it to be sweeter)

To kick it up a notch, add:

  • Herbs—a sprig of mint or cilantro
  • Lemon—1-2 slices
  • Avocado—about 1/4 avocado gives you some healthy fats and makes the smoothie nice and creamy.

Blend and enjoy!

Chocolate-Almond Smoothie

  • 8 oz coconut water
  • 1/2 or 2/3 frozen banana (more if you prefer it sweeter)
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon (or to taste) unsweetened cocoa powder
