Why Should I Add Marine Collagen Peptides to my Smoothie?

Our Hydrolysed Marine Collagen Peptide Powder is simply a pure, natural and highly bioavailable source of quality protein. Derived from wild caught North Atlantic white fish, it provides a clean and premium source of 18 amino acids, 8 of which are essential and can't be synthesised in the human body.

Our marine protein powder is unflavoured and dissolves easily into smoothies, drinks and meals to provide a nutrient-dense source of protein in every serving. You can learn more about the benefits if Marine Collagen in our articles below:

Are Avocados Good For Making Smoothies?

Avocados are a great addition to smoothies to provide a good dose of healthy fats, vitamins & minerals as well as a lovely creamy texture and subtle flavour.

They're high in healthy monounsaturated fats such as oleic acid and have an impressive overall fatty acid profile. Avocados are also a great source of Vitamins C, E & K, as well as Potassium, Magnesium and Beta-Carotene.

Having such an incredible nutritional profile is the main reason we chose to squeeze out all of the nutrients this fabulous fruit contains to make a nutrient-dense, cold-pressed oil.

Our Extra Virgin Avocado Oil is perfect for cooking, sizzling and drizzling and perfect to replace and phase-out harmful veg and seed oils from your life. Learn more below:

Why Do I Need to Soak My Chia Seeds?

Soaking your chia seeds in water for 15 minutes before adding to your smoothie doesn't just make them easier to blend but also makes them easier to digest too. 

Interestingly, as chia seeds absorb up to 30 times their weight in water, they can also help to prolong hydration and retain electrolytes. Together with collagen peptides, which aid muscle recovery and synthesis after exercise, this smoothie shapes up to be a great post-workout protein drink 💪 Here's the recipe...
