Easy Chocolate Sandwich Cookie

Delicious Sandwich Cookie for one – heavy on the protein? Yes, please! (Approx 12g protein)

1 T mascarpone cheese
1/2 scoop PE Chocolate or Mocha
2 gluten free graham crackers

Mix the PE Chocolate or Mocha with room temperature mascarpone cheese until well combined. (You can do it with mascarpone straight out of the fridge – it will just take more elbow grease!) Spread the chocolate mascarpone combo between two gluten free graham crackers. Enjoy!

So you have purchased Peptan® Hydrolyzed Collagen and you are on your way to healthier and rejuvenated skin, stronger bones, improved connective tissue and muscle growth, but you have hit a road block. With the bag of Protein Essentials collagen in one hand and the scooper in the other, you think to yourself, “What do I put this in?”. Fret no longer, here at Protein Essentials we have been busy determining the top 5 beverages that taste amazing with Peptan® Hydrolyzed Collagen.

1. Coffee

For many, the day does not and can not begin until a fresh batch of joe has been brewed and consumed. Fortunately, your morning roast is the perfect beverage to add Protein Essentials hydrolyzed collagen. The bold flavors of your cup of joe will blend with the unflavored collagen, providing you with the morning jolt you need as well as the many benefits of a paleo superfood.

2. Emergen-C

Woke up feeling run down or with a case of the sniffles? Have no fear, Emergen-C mixed with Peptan® Hydrolyzed Collagen or even our Perform 100 recovery supplement make amazing cold fighting teams, giving you a much needed immune system boost while also combating joint and muscle pain.

3. Smoothie

Nothing beats a perfectly blended smoothie with naturally sweet and nutrient rich fruits. Give your smoothie a protein punch by adding Protein Essentials hydrolyzed collagen. With an abundance of smoothie recipes to satisfy any mood, it’s easy to mix up your morning smoothie ritual. You can find delicious smoothie recipes from Katy’s Kitchen on our website.

4. Tea

Looking for a beverage that is both warm and relaxing? Tea is a great option as it is chock full of beneficial herbs, it contains a bit of caffeine to kick start your day, and it fights free radicals. The variety of tea flavors available make it an exceptionally versatile beverage for adding collagen protein.

5. Gatorade

If you’re an athlete, replenishing electrolytes is key to building muscle and staying hydrated. Gatorade is not only a great source of the potassium and sodium you need to combat dehydration, but it also contains a balance of carbs that aid muscle recovery. The benefits of Gatorade can be further enhanced by adding Peptan® Hydrolyzed Collagen or our Perform 100 recovery powder. This powerful combo will keep you hydrated while simultaneously promoting connective tissue health and alleviating muscle and joint pain.
