Lava Flow Mocktails with Collagen

Drinks like this remind me of our honeymoon to the Caribbean. We took a cruise starting in Puerto Rico and visited places like St. Lucia, Antigua, Barbados and St. Thomas. Although I wish we could’ve spent a whole week on our fave island, St. Lucia!

Sipping on drinks like this have me planning out a whole new trip there in my head, even if it’s just a pipe dream. But really, please take me back!!

I want to hike the Piton mountains this time, do more snorkeling and spend most days lying on the beach sipping drinks like this (even if they don’t have any rum in them lol!) I made this mocktail version of a lava flow but added in some gut healing and skin boosting collagen. It helps with all the things alcohol doesn’t making it a healthier but “this still tastes naughty” option. I’ll turn a blind eye if you want to make it into a cocktail though, haha!

This drink also contains some healthy fats and it’s dairy free and refined sugar free! I created it with my friends over at Vitacost! I want to give them a huge hug every time I get my delivery! They make my life so much easier by keeping my pantry stocked full of healthier products like the collagen and coconut cream used in these drinks and I don’t even have to get out of my pj’s to shop! Cheers to healthy summer drinks and to shopping in your PJ’s!
