PETE EVANS COLLAGEN SUPERBLEND - 454GRAMS
Chocolate or Vanilla? Why settle for one or the other when you can have both, add in some more superfoods like Camu Camu, Mesquite, Lacuma and Inulin and you have a superb blend to boost your smoothies and shakes.
We teamed up with Chef Pete Evans to work on this blend. The final blend is the result of many tweaks to perfection, the last tweak being the addition of Ceylon Cinnamon, which we have to admit is what differentiated the Chef from the Gelpro brothers.
The All-Star Organic Line-Up
LUCUMA was known as Gold of the Incas. It is known for its delicious flavour, almost like a mango crossed with an apricot. It is packed with 14 essential trace elements, high in iron and beta-carotene.
MESQUITE pods are ground into a heavenly caramel tasting powder that is extremely low GI and a natural sweetness. Mesquite is loaded with amino acids, magnesium, potassium, iron, Lysine, zinc, calcium, 30% protein and Omega 3s
CRIOLLA CACAO is considered to be the king of cacao due to its ancient origin and superior source of magnesium and antioxidants. The tree, (Theobroma), literally translates to “food of the gods”. Our non-alkalized cacao ensures the purest, not chemically modified, a superior grade which retains nutrient value.
CAMU CAMU is so super that saying it once is not enough. It has the highest levels of natural Vitamin C than any other food, half a teaspoon gives you 400% RDI. High in carotenoids and amino acids. It has quite the zingy flavour.
The Blend also contains organic: Cinnamon, Natural Vanilla, Inulin from Jerusalem Artichokes
The Collagen - collagen is present in skin, joints, bones, muscle and connective tissue. We place considerable strain on our joints and bones through numerous sporting activities such as running, cycling, CrossFit, weight lifting etc and need to ensure that we have a balanced diet to rebuild all the tissues and repair muscles from training.
We have selected a bovine collagen, sourced from Uruguay, Paraguay and/or Argentina (depending on availability). Cattle from these countries are grass fed.
Stir 15grams into 250ml of your choice of milk or into your favourite smoothie or juice. Best shaken.
