Vital Proteins Gingerbread Collagen Creamer is a festive, warming, delicious way to boost the protein content of your coffees and teas. You’ll never have to buy a separate coffee creamer again! The Gingerbread Collagen Creamer isn’t just rich in collagen protein — it offers healthy fats from coconut milk, making it a great way to get nourishing fats into your coffee. Paleo-friendly and Whole30-approved, our Gingerbread Creamer is free of dairy, soy, carrageenan, gluten, artificial sweeteners, and added sugars.
Everyone wants to maintain beautiful hair, skin, and nails. Everyone also wants to stay healthy and active. That’s where beauty supplements come into play. Even though most of them are targeted toward improving physical appearance, supplements provide nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that can bolster your internal health as well (depending on which ones you take, of course).
The newest beauty supplement to come across our desks does just that. It’s rich in collagen and healthy fats, and it’s dairy-free. The best part is that it’s not a pill or a tablet you have to remind yourself to take. No, taking this one is much easier (and much more delicious) since you can add it to your morning coffee, tea, or smoothie. After all, it’s called the Collagen Creamer for a reason. Keep scrolling to see this new beauty supplement and learn why I fell in love with it at first taste.
You might be familiar with Vital Proteins through its Collagen Peptides ($25). These peptides are sustainably sourced from grass-fed bovine. Collagen is thought to benefit hair, skin, and nails (which is why it’s listed in so many beauty supplements as one of the first ingredients). Since it’s actually a type of protein, the collagen also helps to internally strengthen tendons, ligaments, and joints.
Sounds good, right? Well, the brand’s newest product is just as good for your health as the original collagen product, but this time it’s slightly different. It’s a powdered creamer that’s soluble in liquids like coffee and tea. Since it’s made with organic powdered coconut milk, all you have to do is stir it into your favorite beverage in order to reap all of the collagen benefits. Thanks to the coconut milk, it also contains heart-healthy fats like MCTs (or medium-chain triglycerides—they increase energy and decrease fat storage).
I mixed the powder into my coffee one morning and couldn’t believe how great it tasted—like blending frothy coconut creamer right in. It’s dairy-free— Those fats are good for your metabolism and your hair, and the collagen is really great for your joint and bone health. I’m officially on board.
Finally, if you’re worried about a long list of additives hiding behind a few beneficial ingredients, don’t be. The ingredients list is short. In fact, there are only four of them: organic coconut milk powder, collagen peptides, organic bamboo shoot extract, and organic acacia fiber. In the vanilla-flavored version, all the company adds is vanilla bean. The other flavor you can try, gingerbread, contains the same base ingredients plus organic cinnamon, ginger root, and nutmeg.
