When I tried the collagen peptides, I was also given Vital Proteins Collagen Beauty Greens to try. The Whole 30-approved, super food packed supplement is designed to basically be a beauty elixir to glow from the inside out because of the organic greens in it.
The product was given to me by Vital Proteins, and this post includes affiliate links.

How Much Do You Take?
You can do 1 scoop one to two times a day. I personally did 1 a day so that it would last longer and let my body absorb it better. I’m also a smaller frame so 1 scoop goes a long way.
When to Drink
You can drink it anytime during the day; however, I suggest mixing it into something.
Taste & Texture
The first time I tried a serving, I mixed it in just water. MISTAKE. It was so “green” and was like drinking grass.
With that said, I learned that Vital Proteins doesn’t even recommend drinking it with just water. So that was on me.
Good in a Smoothie
I mixed it with my Chocolate Shakeology, and I couldn’t taste it at all. They also recommend mixing it into chocolate almond milk.
The texture was absolutely no problem for me. It’s not thick or gritty.
They also have recipes for each product on their blog.
If you’re worried about the taste…
If you’re worried it will be too green for you even in a smoothie, first – let me tell you I am a WIMP with green drinks. I hate them. So the fact that I drank it in a smoothie with no problem is a testimony for its light flavor. I enjoyed being able to get my greens in each day with this once I mixed it into my shake.
But – If you’re just wanting incredible skin with something that is odorless and tasteless, look at the collagen peptides.
You won’t get the organic greens and hyaluronic acid, but collagen has amazing benefits for the skin and body.
If you want hyaluronic acid along with some skin-boosting ingredients, you could also add in the Beef Liver supplement. I know, sounds gross, but it contains biotin, folate and B12. It’s also tasteless!
Would I Buy Vital Proteins Collagen Beauty Greens
Totally! I love that you can get in your organic greens, collagen, probiotics and hyaluronic acid in one supplement. Some have complained at the price of $3.50 per serving. However, I just don’t get that. It contains all of your nutrition without added sugars. A ton of juices cost that much and contain sugar and junk in them.
I also love that Vital Proteins uses organic and high quality ingredients which is really important to me.
Finally, I also saw my skin’s clarity improve and my redness go down. I really feel like it’s done what it promised. I also love their collagen peptides so the fact that the marine collagen peptides are in this is a huge perk!
Have you tried green drinks before?
Would you try this one since it also has collagen, probiotics and hyaluronic acid?
