3 Collagen Tea Recipes

3 Collagen Tea Recipes

WINTER IS HERE!

Winter means TEA, & in my case TONS OF TEA.

Matcha is a major obsession of mine. I used to be really big on coffee, but I swapped out 2 coffees for 2 matchas every day & I’m very into it. 

Collagen & Gangster Chic Brand Inulin are my favorite things to add to drinks, especially teas, so I wanted to give you guys 3 tea recipes where you can easily add a scoop of collagen to each one.

The Skinny Confidential’s Favorite Collagen Tea Recipes:

♡ TSC MATCHA LATTE

+ Pique Tea Sun Goddess Matcha ( use code SKINNY for 5% off )

+ coconut milk ( Native Forest is my & Kristin Cavallari’s favorite )

+ cinnamon stick

+ 1 scoop of collagen ( again, I like Vital Proteins )

DIRECTIONS: take this whole situation ( except the cinnamon stick- save that to pop in your mug for a finishing touch ) & froth it up in your frother.  If you don’t have a frother, you gotta get yourself one. You can’t go wrong with either of these ones

♡ sportea

+ steeped SPORTea

+ bit of unsweetened almond milk

+ 1 scoop of collagen

DIRECTIONS: froth the almond milk & collagen together BEFORE you pour it into a glass of ice with SPORTea. For extra sweetness add honey & lemon.

HOT TIP: to froth milk for cold drinks, just hold down the main button of your frother. Some frothers have a button for hot & a button for cold, but if they don’t, try holding down the button until the blue light flashes. If your frother doesn’t do this or you can’t be bothered, I got you. Just grab yourself this little one.

♡ Kourtney Kardashian’s apple tea

+ 1 quart of water

+ 1 red apple ( sliced into quarters )

+ 2 cinnamon sticks

+ 8 whole cloves

+ 1/4 tsp of turmeric

+ 1 inch cube of ginger (sliced )

+ 1 bunch of mint

+ 1 lemon

+ 1/4 tsp ground cardomom

+ 1 scoop of collagen

+ organic manuka honey

DIRECTIONS: add water, apple, cinnamon sticks, cloves, turmeric, ginger, mint & cardamom to a large pot. Squeeze in half a lemon, then thinly slice the other half. Bring the pot to a boil, reduce to simmer for 10 mins while covered. Add honey to the bottom of your mug then strain tea while you pour it in. ( This makes 2 big mugs ).

While we’re here, you should know about the bougiest, chicest mugs in the whole world. They’re the Bodum double-walled clear glass mugs. So elegant, so French, SO NECESSARY when enjoying your favorite collagen concoction. Like, I don’t even want to have a tea if it isn’t in this.

Anyway. There you go! 3 winter wonderland tea recipes that have all the benefits of collagen. I would love to know all your favorite tea recipes this season? Cheers.

  1. This is amazing! I love tea, as well. Summer = iced tea, obvi & during winter, hot tea is my go-to! I only started drinking match tea until lately, & I have fallen IN LOVE. I want to try the TSC matcha tea for that great collagen boost! + some ginger is a must, for me! ~ sara 🙂 thecliqueblog.com

  2. I’m a big tea drinker too. I discovered matched when I visited Japan in 2009 and have been drinking it ever since! I haven’t heard of the sports tea though. It sounds really good and I’ll have to give it a try!
