What Is Vital Proteins Collagen Water?
It’s a grab-and-go option that is infused with 10 grams of collagen peptides and real fruit juice. We love how convenient these options are, and they are a great way to feel refreshed! We can’t wait to drink them in the summer!

Which flavor tastes the best?
We decided to try 3 flavors on camera to share our first reactions!
Out of the three, we really liked the Strawberry Lemon! It had a great taste and was a good flavor alternative for when we want a Coke. (Yes, diet soda is a bad habit of ours!) This felt like a treat, and could actually help us break our habit of drinking soda.
The original is also very similar to lemon water which we loved. If you’re unsure which flavor to choose, we highly recommend this one because it’s just like drinking water with a lot of lemon in it.
We won’t buy Blueberry Mint again. It tastes like a strong spearmint gum, and we ended up tossing the rest of the bottle. If you like a strong mint flavor in your water or tea, it could be perfect for you!
Should you do the water or the powder?
We love the original collagen peptides and mix them into our tea, smoothies, and our after workout supplement. People also love to mix it into their coffee. The original peptides are flavorless, and the greens and matcha have a pleasant taste.
The only downside to the powder is you have to remember to add it to something. It sounds easy to mix it, but it took us awhile to make it a daily habit. We’ve also found mixing it into something hot works best; it doesn’t completely dissolve into cold or room temperature drinks.
The Collagen Waters are so easy to grab and go in the morning or enjoy in the afternoon when a craving hits! Plus, you’re still getting the same benefits and quality you would get from the powdered version.
If you’re looking for convenience, the waters are perfect!
If you’re looking to add in collagen along with something else – like Matcha – the powders are going to be the best option.
Collagen has been shown to help with gut health, joints, hair, skin, and nails. You can learn more about the benefits of collagen in our original review as well.
Why Vital Proteins?
We choose Vital Proteins products because they’re sustainably-sourced, and they only use the highest quality ingredients. Their products come from pasture-raised cows in Brazil and New Zealand and wild-caught fish in Hawaii.
Their Collagen Peptides were what got us hooked years ago.
Now, we’ve tried several of their products, and we’ve loved almost all of them. The only thing we didn’t love was their Beauty Collagen, but now we have these waters instead! These grab-and-go collagen waters taste great, and there is no chalky taste.
