The Perfect Healthy Brunch Mocktail For Your Non-Drinking Friends

Hello loves,

This past weekend was actually super productive and relaxing all at once. I was finally able to get around to running all these errands I’ve been putting off and was able to also meet the deadline for my magazine article! It feels good to cross things off the list and start the week off on a good note. I made a simple brunch at home and it got me to thinking, I’m always making cocktails but I’ve had several of you ask about mocktails. Whether you’re living a straight edge life or can’t indulge in alcohol at the moment , this mocktail is the perfect drink for you to have in hand while socializing with friends.

I know it’s crazy how much of our lives is surrounded by food and drinks. But believe it or not, most mornings I’m not in the mood for a cocktail so I usually pass on it.

I wanted to combine my favorite brunch cocktail with a vitamin tense supplement. I used Vital Proteins Collagen Veggie Blend which is a nutrient packed blend that combines the benefits of collagen, whole organic veggies and fruits. With three servings of vegetables and one serving of fruit, you can essentially mix this blend with anything!

The veggie blend contains: Organic Spinach, Organic Kale, Organic Carrot, Organic Blueberry, Organic Blackberry, Organic Strawberry, Organic Lemon, Organic Raspberry, Organic Broccoli, Organic Acerola Cherry, Organic Cranberry, Bovine Hide Collagen Peptides.

All the things you need to make a yummy healthy Bloody Mary mocktail:

What you’ll need

-celery salt

-garlic powder

-cayenne pepper

-1 scoop of collagen veggie blend

-salt

-pepper

-V8

-ice

-1 lemon

Mix one scoop of collagen veggie blend with V8, celery salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Pour over ice and serve. Use a lime slice for garnish and celery stalk.

  1. Is this a new Vital Proteins flavor? I’ve tried a lot of their collagen powders and haven’t seen this one before. In any case I love Bloody Mary’s but this mocktail version with the added boost of collagen is calling my name. What a fab recipe to share and I want to try it. Gotta order my next shipment of Viral Proteins right now. Xoxo, Christine

    I love Vital Proteins! I’ve been using their products for years now!

  12. This actually sounds so good and perfect for me right now seeing as I can’t drink! The fact that you’ve given a Bloody Mary recipe for this collagen powder has me sold already! I’ll need to try and see what other mocktails I can make with it 😉

  15. Happy Monday! Productive weekends are the best! Mine was quite productive as well, and as you said it is SO nice to cross things off of the list! Your mocktail looks delicious! Is it more of a savory drink, like a Bloody Mary? I have the same Vital Protein at home, so I’ll have to give this a go!

    Thank you,

  16. This is perfect! I love a great mocktail and the fact that you have added a vital bend to the drink as well…. perfection!! Who doesn’t love a great Virgin Mary?! I’m a big fan of the effect of collagen as a supplement so this product sounds perfect for me.

    Thanks so much for sharing!

  17. This is amazing. I am in love with this idea. I have actually heard of products similar to this one before by my friends and family. Once in a while I like to enjoy a nice mocktail and I would be so down to try this one. I feel that collagen is something super important. And as age increases the collagen and elasticity of our skin decreases. So this is such a wonderful idea that is beneficial and delicious. I would love to try drinkable collagen and trust me, I will definitely be getting this someday.

    xoxo, Vanessa.

  18. Wow, this thing is definitely for me, coz I’m not a big fan of drinking. But this cocktail would make my day for sure. The collagen as the main ingredient sounds fantastic, although I’ve never heard of something like this before. I really love that idea to offer some nice and non-alcoholic cocktails to those who don’t drink at all! Love it! And once again, adore your pictures!

  19. I’m not really a drinker so I always feel left out. Love this mocktail! And love that the collagen veggie blend is good for you and whole 30 approved! What a great way to treat yourself on so many levels!

  20. I haven’t heard the term straight edge in a while! It brought back middle school memories! Anyways, this Vital Proteins Bloody Marry mock tale looks super yum! I love that it’s made with organic fruits and veggies! I don’t drink much besides a glass of wine every now and then so this sounds perfect for someone like me. I’ve also never actually had a Bloody Mary which is so weird now that I think about it! I have no idea why. Super cool and healthy alternative to an actual cocktail.

  21. Oh my gosh who would’ve thought to make a mock tail extra healthy?!
    What a wonderful and healthy idea I’ve used collagen supplements in the past and will definitely use them again as I know how good they are for you.
    I’ve never tried vital proteins before can you get this in Australia?
    What flavor is it?
    Can you add it to smoothies as are usually drink one before I go to the gym.

How awesome is it that you can make something yummy, all while benefitting your health and body at the same time?!
