Unless you’ve been living under a rock (and if you have, that’s cool) I’m guessing you’ve heard of collagen, and probably heard me talk about collagen cause I kinda LOVE it. After getting tons of questions, I wrote a whole post about the 6 Reasons Why I Use Collagen which I highly recommend you read.
I have tons of recipes that use collagen in baked goods, but figured it was time to use it in something a little lighter and more refreshing for summer time, so I came up with this Strawberry Cucumber Collagen Limeade recipe!
This refreshing summer treat uses Vital Protein’s Strawberry Lemon Beauty Collagen, lime juice, berries, and cucumbers to create a delicious (and protein packed!) drink you’ll love! Perfect for a Whole30 friendly ‘mocktail’ or just something to cool off with in the afternoons. When I think of Summer I think of sitting out in the sun and sipping on something yummy. Rather than drinking something super sugary, I love this because it’s just a little bit sweet from the berries, and still very light. The 11g of protein is also not to shabby!
In addition to wanting to sit back and sip on something delicious – if you’re anything like me, you might have a hard time drinking enough water or getting in enough protein throughout the day. With the Summer heat upon us, it’s more important now than ever to stay hydrated! This drink does both, and tastes good while getting the job done.
My favorite Vital Protein’s product will always be their regular collagen peptides, but I have been enjoying the Strawberry Lemon Beauty Collagen now that it’s getting hot out. Whether I put it in this limeade, or just with ice cold water – it dissolves easily and makes it a little more fun to drink my water! If you’re jut getting started with collagen, I would recommend the regular collagen peptides because they dissolve into any thing and are flavorless. I put them in my coffee every day! If you’re a collagen connoisseur, give the Strawberry Lemon a try! It’s a little different + super delicious! Regardless of what collagen you use.. this limeade is so refreshing, and I know you’ll love it.

I hope you enjoy sipping on this through the dog days of Summer! It’s been a fav of mine the past few weeks cause it’s been SO hot out, but I’m pretty sure that even when it isn’t hot I’ll be drinking this! It’s took good not to enjoy year round!
