We’re busy bees at Team Amandean, but cutting out the commute in the last year has meant more time to experiment creatively in the kitchen. Luckily we have a whole product line to upgrade our recipes. Today’s recipe is a dairy-free twist on chocolate pudding, with the addition of wild-caught marine collagen for an extra kick of protein. Our very own Leslie made it herself, and the rest of us instantly drooled and gave it a review of 5-stars.
Why add Marine Collagen to a dessert recipe?
We all know how time consuming food prep can get. That’s why adding marine collagen is one of the easiest ways to keep your protein intake high (and your skin glowing). Marine collagen powder is a high bioavailability, protein supplement that is unflavored and soluble. This makes it easy to blend into all your favorite recipes and drinks. What’s more, marine collagen contains the hydrolyzed collagen peptides from fish, which offer a rate of absorbance higher than any other collagen source. This makes it great value as well.
Besides easy-to-mix into your daily nutrition, marine collagen is an actual superfood when it comes to skincare. It has been shown to promote skin elasticity and hydration, while concealing textural changes, fine lines, and wrinkling. In addition, supplementing with marine collagen has been associated with improvement in skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Marine collagen can also make your nails and hair stronger as you age. It’s a fountain of youth if you use it consistently.
Since collagen is a structural protein, it is also an important factor when it comes to keeping your bones strong as you age. Marine collagen has been found to improve bone density and elasticity, inhibiting bone breakdown and aiding in prevention of bone loss. And if you’re looking to improve your lean muscle mass, make sure you’re adding marine collagen to your pre- and post-workout shakes! Protein is the main component of muscles, and it is what helps them grow while supporting the recovery process. Marine collagen is also an ideal companion on a healthy weight loss journey since it contains no fat, zero carbs, and a satiating protein source.
