I’m about to let you in on a little secret. I drink this collagen shake every day. It’s creamy but still light, super tasty, and packed with health-boosting ingredients to get my day started the right way. What’s not to love?
Keto Salted Caramel Collagen Shake
I love drinking this shake to break my fast each day. I find that it eases the transition from fasting a lot better than a solid meal.
Using minimal ice helps keep this shake very light, certainly thinner than a traditional smoothie or milkshake. But of course, you could always add more ice if you choose!
Not to mention, it packs a healthy serving of collagen. If you’ve been hearing about this amazing supplement and wondering how to incorporate it into your diet, you’ve come to the right spot.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is a protein that is found in our skin, bones, cartilage, and other connective tissues. It helps to keep them strong, flexible, and healthy. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen, which can lead to wrinkles, joint pain, and other health issues.
That’s where collagen comes in. One great way to get your daily dose of collagen is by starting your day with a collagen shake.

What Is The Best Collagen For The Keto Diet?
Personally, I like to use Perfect Keto. They’re known for using whole, healthy ingredients in all of their products. Not to mention, they were started by Keto scientists and doctors specifically for those of us who follow the Keto lifestyle.
Even if you aren’t keto, you can enjoy the fact that it is not loaded with sugar and other crappy ingredients. And if you need another reason, then let me just tell you how good this stuff tastes!
The flavor combination of the salted caramel with the blended almond butter is just one of those things that you have to try yourself to believe. And once you do, you will be hooked.
