The new Premium Marine Collagen from Further Food had us all dreamy about getting more “beach” time into our lives and we instantly knew we had to come up with a smoothie that took us to the islands to help us live vicariously through our taste buds for a bit! Packed with tropical flavors, yet not overly sweet because there’s no added sweetener. Perfect for some “me time” in the morning or even for an afternoon vitamin D session outside warming your toes under the sun!

Island Lime Collagen Colada Smoothie
1 cup cashew milk (or milk of choice)
1 cup cold water
1 lime, cut into ⅛’s
½ frozen banana
¼ cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
¼ cup macadamia nuts, unsalted
¼ cup frozen pineapple
zest and juice of additional lime
1 scoop Further Food Premium Marine Collagen
1 to 2 cups ice
1. Place cashew milk, water and lime segments into blender and pulse 4-5 times to coarsely chop but not completely pulverize. Strain through fine mesh sieve into a clean bowl, rinse blender out and pour “lime infused” milk back into it.
2. Add remaining ingredients and blend until the consistency you want is reached. Add as much or little ice as you like. More ice will give you a thicker consistency, possibly requiring a straw! Whereas less ice will make it more “sip-able” ~~ either way, find a great spot to take a few minutes for yourself and escape away for a few minutes to the islands!
