Peaches with Vital Proteins

Peaches offer a healthy and refreshing snack throughout the warmer summer months. They offer many health benefits such as:

  • Vitamins A and C for healthier skin
  • Can help with “Metabolic Syndrome”
  • Rich source of Beta Carotene for eye health
  • Rich source of fiber
  • Full of antioxidants

Here are a couple of fantastic recipes that combine the healthiness of peaches with beneficial protein and amino acids of Vital Proteins Collagen Supplements. Amino acids like glycine can have a calming effect, while amino acids like proline can help promote healthy skin.

1 scoop Vital Proteins Collagen Protein
2 cups coconut milk
2 tablespoons raw honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 peach sliced

Directions
In a food processor or blender, puree the fresh peach with a little bit of water.

In a medium bowl, pour one cup of the coconut milk and sprinkle on the Collagen Protein. This will allow the protein to “bloom”

In a sauce pot, combine the remaining cup of coconut milk with raw honey and heat on low-medium heat until it is steaming, do not boil.
