1 cup of mixed berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries)
1 cup of cold water, sparkling water or cold, unsweetened herbal tea (e.g., hibiscus or green tea)
1-2 teaspoons of honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)
A squeeze of fresh lemon juice (for extra flavor and vitamin C)
Ice cubes (optional)
Fresh mint leaves or a slice of lemon for garnish (optional)
1. Place the mixed berries in a bowl and use a fork or potato masher to gently mash the berries until they are mostly broken down but still retain some texture.
3. Pour the cold water/sparking water/cold herbal tea over the collagen, stirring well to combine until fully dissolved.
4. Add whole berries of your choice to the liquid mixture or mashed berries in a separate bowl and add. Stir again.
5. Add honey or maple syrup and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, adjusting to your desired level of sweetness and flavor.
