For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
For those with a daily healthy smoothie habit, behold this wonderful blend, with just grass-fed collagen for your joints and tendons plus all-natural slow energy from coconut milk. What else is needed to make this blend amazing? Not much but a dash of real chocolate and a hint of sweet from natural monk fruit extract.

My appreciation for Mark Sisson's Primal Kitchen creations started out pretty high with their collagen bars and culinary sauces, but it has only grown since then. Collagen is where it's at this year, and you'll get the easiest, tastiest protein shake with everything included. Add water, ice, and go directly to your shaker bottle. No need for the countertop blender!
Just like before with all Primal Kitchen foods, this blend of amazing ingredients is the perfect foundation of health. The grass-fed collagen satisfies the tastebuds as it nourishes the body. This recipe is barely sweet—a rarity in protein shake blends—yielding to your desire for something gently sweet but without the hassle of tracking down fruits and natural sweeteners to put in your blender.
Here's what Primal Kitchen says about their own amazing recipe, "Primal Kitchen® Collagen Fuel™ protein shakes are the perfect drink to enhance the body’s natural ability to repair joints, tendons and muscles, and to support healthy skin, hair and nails. Collagen is the most abundant source of protein in the human body and one of the top choices for gut health. Our Collagen Fuel contains coconut milk as the primary source of beneficial healthy fat, helping to take the edge off hunger for hours. We source only the purest ingredients, and you won’t find fillers, preservatives or artificial anything in our Collagen Fuel. So get ready to stir, blend and shake!"

About Primal Kitchen, in their own words
