What is Collagen?

Collagen is a protein that acts as a “glue” and provides structure to your skin, bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

There are four main types of collagen. They include:

  • Type I
  • Type II
  • Type III
  • Type IV.

The four types of collagen play different roles in your body. These are:

  1. Type I collagen is usually packed with dense fibers and provides the structure to your bones, skin, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
  2. Type II collagen is usually packed with loose fibers and is responsible for cushioning your joints.
  3. Type III collagen is responsible for supporting arteries, muscles, and organs.
  4. Type IV collagen is usually found in the layers of your skin and helps with filtration.

The Benefits of Collagen Coffee

Apart from the mentioned benefits, here are some other benefits that you get from adding collagen to your coffee.

  1. Collagen maintains your digestive health.
  2. Collagen improves your hair.
  3. Collagen smoothens your skin by making it firm.
  4. Collagen helps in alcohol detoxification by the liver.
  5. Collagen relieves pain in your joints.

As you age, the collagen production rate in your body decreases, and the collagen produced is of low quality. This calls for the need to take in collagen in your body.

Let’s now make our collagen coffee.

How to Make Collagen Coffee

This article discusses different ways you can incorporate collagen in your coffee.

Method 1

Prep time – 5minutes.


  • Regular brewed coffee or espresso
  • Collagen peptides
  • Sweetener
  • Milk

For the collagen peptides, you can either use the unflavored peptides or the flavored peptides. Unflavored collagen is the best as it does not change your coffee’s taste. Cashew milk, almond milk, coconut milk, or other plant-based milk will also serve the purpose.


  1. Brew 10 oz of coffee or one espresso shot.
  2. Heat the milk up.
  3. Add 1/3 cup of the milk to the brewed coffee.
  4. Add some sweetener and one to two scoops of collagen to the mug.
  5. Mix everything and form some froth.
  6. Enjoy your collagen coffee.

Method 2


  • 12 oz of brewed coffee
  • 2-scoops of collagen
  • 1-tablespoon grass-fed butter
  • 1-tablespoon unrefined coconut oil
  • 1/2 a cup coconut milk
  • Cinnamon

Prep time – 5 minutes.


  1. Combine the brewed coffee, collagen, butter, coconut oil, and milk into a blender.
  2. Blend the ingredients until smooth.
  3. Pour the collagen coffee into a mug and top with cinnamon.
  4. Enjoy your collagen coffee.

Collagen powder can be used with hot coffee and still serve its health benefits.

You can add your collagen powder in other beverages and foods such as:

  • Soups
  • Oats
  • Smoothies
  • Tea
  • Mashed potatoes

To ensure that you get the full benefits of collagen, make sure that you use grass-fed collagen. This type of collagen does not have added sugars or preservatives.
