5 Matcha Collagen Recipes for Every Part of Your Day

There’s a really good chance you’ve at least heard or spotted matcha #mugshots on Instagram, even if you have yet to order a cup of matcha at your local café. The green beverage has been everywhere in recent years, and for good reason. As the favorite drink of many wellness enthusiasts, matcha is finely-ground powdered green tea leaves that contain good-for-you nutrients, like amino acid L-theanine, which promotes an “alert calm” in matcha drinkers. Say goodbye to that mid-day caffeine crash.

We’re such fans of the traditional Japanese drink that we put our own Vital Proteins spin on it and added collagen for a protein boost. Our Matcha Collagen promotes those same benefits we just mentioned, while also helping to promote strong hair, skin, nails and joints (thanks to the addition of our Collagen Peptides).

Get started on your matcha-loving journey by trying one (or all!) of these Matcha Collagen-infused recipes. Reap the health benefits while satisfying your cravings.
