If you’ve ever read one of our posts, you know we’re all about looking and feeling our best! So when Vital Proteins told us their Collagen Creamer could help us have more energy and improve our hair, skin and nails, we we were game to try it!
We’ll share what makes it work and if it’s worth drinking on a regular basis!
Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer combines organic coconut milk with their amazing peptides.
We love their peptides because they’re such a high quality. They are sources from grass-fed, pasture-raised cows.
This just added in those healthy fats our bodies need (and made everything a little creamier! Yum!)

Why Collagen Creamer vs Bone Broth?
When we first learned about collagen’s health benefits, we tried Kettle & Fire’s bone broth.
While we loved the benefits and the company, we got tired of drinking broth every day.
This creamer allows us some variety in how we consume it, and it has the same benefits!
How to Make the Perfect Collagen-Packed Coffee
If you’re a coffee lover, you’re going to flip over these flavors. Our favorite is the coconut collagen creamer, but they also have it in vanilla and gingerbread!!
To create the perfect Collagen Iced Coffee:
- Mix 6 ounces of cold coffee together with 1-2 scoops of your favorite flavor of collagen creamer
- Add in 2-4 ounces of either cold water or almond milk.
- Blend or shake in a shaker cup.
- Serve over ice if desired.
Is it Just Collagen Coffee Creamer?
No way! We use it in all sorts of ways.
A few of our favorite ways are:
- in a smoothie to make it super creamy!
- mixed into hot chocolate for a sweet treat!
- in baked goods and treats like cookies or brownies.
- over oats and banana in the morning.

It is worth drinking??
While everyone has their own opinions on what is worth it or not, we’ve seen our joints and gut health improve by drinking collagen.
We’ve also found that our hair, skin and nails get more from this supplement (or the regular peptides) than from Biotin which is suppose to be “THE magic pill” for all 3.
With that said, you don’t really need the collagen creamer AND the peptides. You could pick and choose or alternate like we do.
We like the creamer because of the healthy fats it packs. The peptides come in handy when you’re just looking for a protein and collagen.
