Strawberry-Coconut Collagen Mocktail


This Caribbean-inspired beverage has been a longtime favorite on fancy cruise ships and other tropical hot spots. Commonly referred to as a “lava flow” cocktail, this frozen fruity mocktail version offers a better-for-you spin that you won’t find anywhere else! The recipe calls for collagen, a structural protein that helps maintain flexibility and strength throughout the body.

Ready to drift away to paradise? Slip into your bikini, grab your shades, turn up the island tunes and sip on this magma-esque mocktail to work wonders on your skin, hair, nails and joints.
