We all know I love a good refreshment in the afternoons. I love my coffee, but don’t always want to rely on that to get me through the day. Especially during summer, it’s so nice to have a crisp + refreshing beverage on hand, that’s actually good for you.
I have a few different water / sports drinks on rotation (basically this one, the ACV drink, various club soda drinks and kombucha to name a few)
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
+ ice (optional, if you don’t want to enjoy this)
+ a lemon
+ fresh water
+ collagen powder (I use this one)
+ shaker cup
While this is a simple and obvious “recipe” to make, I’m giving you specific directions on how I like to enjoy it. There’s no skirting around ‘enjoying’ healthy decisions in my life, so unless I’m actually into it I’m probably not doing it consistently! I need to find ways to make it enjoyable so it’s something I can actually incorporate regularly.
I should also note — you don’t need all these things above. By all means, you certainly don’t need a shaker cup, but I can be a baby when it comes to funny tastes etc. so to be sure the collagen powder is fully dissolved this is my go-to way to make it.
- fill ice in cup (I prefer to drink only out of glass, tastes better IMO)
- cut fresh lemon in half (right down middle, width way) and cut a few slices to throw into your glass. *I believe the lemon helps to offset ANY taste, should there be any. It’s also great for digestion & your skin.
- in a shaker cup, add 1-2 scoops of collagen powder, add water and shake with lid on.
- pour diluted water over ice + lemon and enjoy!
