Tropical Collagen Mojito

December 27, 2019



Lower Carb Tropical Collagen Mojito

Whether it’s the dead of winter or the peak of summer, a refreshing, smooth mojito always sounds like a good idea. The sweet burst of mint cuts the sour tang of lime and the sweetened soda water mellow the bite of rum; close your eyes while sipping this iconic drink and you can be transported instantly to the tropics (even if there’s six feet of snow on the ground where you are). 

We gave the traditional mojito a more modern upgrade by replacing the rum with mezcal, removing added refined sugar, using our Collagen Quench Mango Pineapple sweetened with fruit juice powders, and making the drink even more thirst-quenching with a blend of coconut water and club soda. We used pink coconut water to give the drink a fetching blush, and lined the rim of the glass with flaky sea salt to enhance the lime-mint freshness even more.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a cocktail shaker or large glass, mix collagen with coconut water. Don’t worry about getting clumps out at this stage. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, the collagen should start to bloom and come to the surface of the coconut water. Break up the collagen clumps with the back of a spoon. Stir the mixture for about 10 seconds. Let stand another 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, take 6-8 fresh mint leaves and bruise the leaves with the back of a spoon. Add the mint leaves to coconut collagen mixture. Pour in lime juice and mezcal, and stir.
  • Run a lime wedge along the lips of two glasses. 
  • Pour flaky sea salt in the bottom of a shallow bowl or dish. Place each glass, lip side down, in the sea salt and turn a few times until the flaky salt sticks to the lip. Stand glasses right side up.

Keto Avocado Smoothie, Two Ways

Keto Avocado Smoothie, Two Ways

For folks who like their shakes frothy, thick, and creamy, avocados are the secret ingredient to a successful smoothie. Unlike a banana or nut butter, they add a little heft without stealing the show with overpowering flavor. An avocado adds texture with mostly neutral flavor, allowing other ingredients to make a bigger statement. For our Keto Avocado Smoothie, two scoops of Primal Kitchen Collagen Fuel add 10g of bovine collagen peptides...and a kick of creamy, vanilla coconut taste that pairs perfectly with avocado.
