I love collagen. I’m a huge advocate for pregnant and postpartum women consuming collagen to help the growing body and baby and then for recovery. The great thing about collagen though, is it’s for everyone.
Collagen is so great for your skin, digestive system, joints, hair and more. This makes it beneficial for athletes, anyone looking for younger skin, anyone looking to help their body age gracefully, someone with joint concerns and more. When I was pregnant, I made a warm collagen drink every morning. I used this to replace the morning coffee I chose to stop drinking.
Collagen helped my growing baby bump. It also helped support my growing tissues expand and stretch, gracefully.
Postpartum, collagen helped my body recover.

Add everything except milk directly into a mug or blender. Heat or steam the milk and pour into mug or blender. If using a mug, whisk until dissolved or frothy. If using a blender, pulse just until blended and frothy.
