Incorporating collagen powder into your routine is a great way to help to boost your collagen levels. But how exactly do you add collagen to a busy schedule?  

From a simple collagen smoothie to a collagen shot, here are 5 ways to incorporate collagen into your routine. 

Why is Everyone Taking Collagen?  

Collagen has become a staple in the world of wellness and has become a part of so many people’s routines. So, before we jump into how you can incorporate collagen supplements into your routine, it might be beneficial to know exactly why everyone’s been loving it!  

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body that helps provide structure to our hair, skin, nails, bones, ligaments and tendons.  

As we age, our collagen production slowly declines, which is where collagen supplements come into play. By incorporating collagen supplements into your diet, you can help boost your collagen levels with ease. With that in mind, here are 5 ways to incorporate collagen into your routine. 

5 Ways to Incorporate Collagen into Your Routine 

Collagen Coffee

1. Add it to Your Morning Coffee 

Kickstart your day with a morning coffee and work towards boosting your collagen production while you’re at it.  

Simply add a scoop of our LQ Collagen Unflavoured Collagen Powder to your coffee and stir until dissolved. As it’s unflavoured, you can still enjoy the flavour of your coffee, but with an added 10,000mg of collagen in your brew. Start your morning right and works toward maintaining your natural collagen levels with a collagen-fuelled hot drink.

2. Ready, Steady, Bake!

There are endless ways to bake with collagen. Whether that be collagen muffins, collagen brownies or collagen banana bread, all you need to do is prep your mixture and add a scoop of unflavoured or flavoured collagen (such as our LQ Collagen Chocolate Collagen powder) and mix. This way you can enjoy a tasty treat while receiving your daily dose of collagen. 

3. Try a Collagen Smoothie  

Collagen powder adds the perfect texture to complement any smoothie. Try adding a scoop of our Unflavoured Collagen Peptides Powder or, to really enhance the fruity flavour in your smoothie, try our Marine Collagen Powder in Mango and Passion Fruit. 

This means that while you’re sipping on your delicious fruity flavoured beverage, you can help provide your collagen levels with some additional support. If you’re on the hunt for a new smoothie recipe to really kickstart your day, here’s one of our favourite collagen smoothie recipes you should try out: 


  • ½ banana 
  • 25g mango 
  • 10g pineapple  
  • 10g peach 
  • 2 scoops LQ Collagen Marine Collagen Powder in Mango and Passion Fruit 
  • 250ml milk or water  


  • Chop up all the fruit into small slices and add to your blender.  
  • Blend all ingredients together until you get a medium consistency. 
  • Serve into a glass and enjoy! 

4. Snack on Some Collagen-Rich Foods 

Another great way to ensure you’re maintaining your natural collagen levels is by snacking on some collagen-rich foods throughout the day. Collagen-rich foods include:  

  • Citrus fruits 
  • Berries 
  • Cashews 
  • Tomatoes 

These snacks work to maintain and increase your natural collagen levels to help improve your skin elasticity, anti-ageing and support joint pain. 

5. Try Collagen Shots 

LQ Collagen Shots

When you don’t have time to bake with collagen, prepare collagen-rich snacks or make a collagen smoothie, our LQ Collagen Shots can help you to incorporate collagen into your routine. This delicious blend of collagen, hyaluronic acid and a wealth of vitamins, works to provide you with a range of health and beauty benefits.

Best Time to Take Collagen

Deciding when to take collagen is completely down to your own lifestyle and preference. Many people choose to take collagen supplements first thing in the morning, so they can kickstart the day with one thing already ticked off their to do list. Others may prefer to save their collagen supplement for after their workout or at night.

Regardless of what time you choose to take collagen, you can rest assured that you’re helping to support and increase your collagen levels.
