This fall, you DO need one more "PSL" in your life. Nope, it doesn't involve anything related to pumpkin or massive marketing campaigns. What your body would love is a Paleo Spice Latte, coming to you through this coconut milk creamer that packs a warming spice punch and collagen protein to build great tissues, too. That's right. Take coconut milk, add the nutrition of collagen peptides, and then sprinkle in vanilla, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a bit of love and you have Vital Proteins' Collagen Creamer in their awesome Gingerbread flavor. Stir it into your coffee straight up, or make a frothy delight in your blender, hot or cold. Yum. ~
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
Two things: your joints deserve smooth animal-sourced collagen, and your coffee needs some deliciously healthy creamer to get your morning revving correctly. Fulfill both goals all in one fell swoop with Collagen Creamer in festive Gingerbread spice by Vital Proteins. How on earth does this work? Heck if I know, but the end result is creamy and delicious. Just start with your cup of joe, all warm and black. Spoon in a healthy amount of the creamer, stir energetically, and start sipping. You'll get the benefits of healthy MCT fats from coconut milk as well as grass-fed collagen to build great joints. Oh, did I mention the massive amount of organic warming spices right there in the mix? Feel the joy from ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. This is real decadence, no sugar required.
I've had other coconut creamers, and they definitely take a bit of a stir to dissolve, but once you've done the job, they sure do taste awesome. The creaminess of coconut, the richness of healthy fats. It is all here, and it's organic, to boot.
Why is the collagen Vital Proteins have added so awesome? The answer is literally easy: it's easy! You could go through hours or days of making bone broth to get just the right amounts of collagen, but who has time for that?! With grass-fed bovine collagen you can get the nutrition without the prep time or the hassle.
That's why Vital Proteins has stepped up their collagen game yet again with this collagen peptides blend that adds coconut milk to give your coffee or tea the creamer it deserves, every single morning. Who needs breakfast, right?
Why Vital Proteins Collagen Coconut Creamer is so good for you
Here are just a few of the benefits to collagen peptides:
- Promotes youthful skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails
- Helps keep bones healthy and strong
- Reduces joint pain and helps prevent joint degeneration
- Contributes to a balanced diet and helps to maintain weight
- Natural glycine is anti-inflammatory and can improve sleep quality
Here are some of the amazing nutrients in Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer
This is no ordinary coconut creamer, and here's why: Glycine, baby, glycine. It's one of the 20 amino acids and it is sorely lacking in the modern diet. It's why bone broth is so great for us, and it's one of the biggest benefits from consuming natural collagen.
What else is in this creamer? Besides the collagen powder, of course there is coconut milk powder. This is what makes the creamer creamy and what gives such awesome richness to each sip of your beverage, whether coffee or tea or latte or smoothie! On top of that you'll find a healthy dose of organic spices like nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon in every serving.
How do you take your Collagen Creamer? Yum!
These Collagen Creamers work as coffee creamers, but their applications don’t end there. Available in three different flavors—Coconut, Vanilla, and Gingerbread—they are the perfect ingredients for a homemade latte. Or, use your Coconut Collagen Creamer in a variety of ways:
- Mix into any hot or cold liquid, such as coffee or tea
- Bake into desserts and pastries
- Stirred into oatmeal or warm breakfast porridge
- Stir into your own favorite yogurt or kefir
- Blend into a smoothie or frappucino
And, of course, 'tis the season for a recipe: our very own PSL!

About Vital Proteins, in their own words
Vital Proteins helps people feel better and live fuller lives through sustainably-sourced nutrition products, promoting health, fitness and natural beauty. We do that by providing nourishing collagen and promoting our production of collagen - an essential nutrient stripped from our diets by modern food-processing.
We know that while our bodies’ collagen production slows as we age, our need for it only grows as our bodies become less efficient and we maintain a vibrant life. And Vital Proteins believes that if you want to, you can make the most out of every moment you’re given - that your body shouldn’t be a limitation, but a catalyst.
Our products are natural sources of essential proteins, sourced from pasture-raised cows in Brazil and New Zealand and wild-caught fish in Hawaii. Why go so many extra miles for these sources? Because there’s nothing more important than one’s health, and we believe the body needs and deserves high-quality building blocks for life’s adventures.
