3 collagen breakfast recipes to start your day right
June 26, 2019
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Make it even better with collagen.
Collagen peptides have a whole host of benefits for the body, including strengthening nails, hair and skin, as well as improving leaky gut, encouraging muscle growth and easing joint pain.
A sachet of Absolute Collagen can turn your breakfast into a superfood. That’s why we’re sharing these three collagen breakfast recipes so that you can wake up and take on the day with an extra boost.
Porridge is an easy and tasty breakfast option that is packed with nutrients. Oats provide protein, fibre and polyphenols, while milk is a great source of calcium.
Simply mix in a sachet of Absolute Collagen and you’ll also experience all of the benefits of hydrolysed marine collagen. For extra Vitamin C – which works synergistically with collagen to increase production – add a splash of orange juice.
Top your porridge with a handful of berries and pistachios – both of which are high in antioxidants that help to protect collagen and elastin in the body.

Another one of our collagen breakfast recipes is a protein shake or smoothie. Shakes are quick and ideal for an on-the-go breakfast.
We like this one from BBC Good Food, which is packed with strawberries, avocado and spinach. Strawberries can help to protect the immune system and are a great antioxidant. Avocados actually contain more potassium than bananas and are loaded with heart-healthy fatty acids, while spinach is full of iron to keep energy levels high.
Simply pop in a sachet of Absolute Collagen before blending. Each sachet contains 7.7 grams of protein and can help you feel fuller for longer.

Mix up your morning yoghurt with a fancy fruit parfait. Not only do they look as good as they taste, but they’re also easy to switch up on the day.
Start with a protein and probiotic-packed Greek yoghurt. Swirl in a sachet of Absolute Collagen before adding it as the base.
Next layer on granola, which has been shown to lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol. Finally add in some fresh fruit and berries before topping with another layer of yoghurt, collagen and granola

No time for breakfast? That’s ok too – simply grab some Absolute Collagen and take it with you on the go. Not only will collagen leave you looking and feeling good, it can also keep you fuller for longer so that you’ll snack less throughout the day.
