30 Original Collagen & Gelatin Recipes You Need to Try

But make sure to adhere to the amounts of flour listed in the recipe strictly. Not using enough flour or adding too much will substantially alter the texture of this flatbread.

With this kind of recipe, you’ll notice that, as the crust cools down, the texture improves. So, you’ll want to wait a little bit before digging in. Also, be sure to add the sauce before adding the toppings. Otherwise, the toppings won’t stick to the crust.

Suggested modifications:
• To boost the flavor of the flatbread, sub the unrefined salt with some truffle salt.

• Instead of using an oven to bake this flatbread pizza, you can also use a preheated pizza stone or a cast iron skillet. As a safety measure, use a large spatula under the parchment paper to transfer your flatbread to the hot pizza stone in the oven.

• Don’t have tapioca starch? Just use some arrowroot flour.

B. Soups

6. Bone Broth

I know, I know. Bone broths don’t look very appetizing.

But they’re nutrient powerhouses that can help:
• Heal your gut and provide relief against digestive distress.

• Nourish your skin, hair, and nails from the inside out – Hello shiny hair and glowing skin!

• Strengthen your joints, ligaments, tendons – bone broth is ideal for individuals suffering from painful joints.

7. Nutty Cabbage & Fennel Soup

Cabbage, fennel, and Brazil nuts – while these ingredients may not sound super appetizing on their own, they really add a kick to this soup.

You can serve this soup on its own or serve with some sautéed sweet potatoes which you can prep while your soup is cooking.

How to get crispy sweet potato chips within minutes:
1. Dice the sweet potatoes as small as you can (for a crispier finish).

2. Brush a saucepan with some olive oil, and throw in the diced sweet potatoes.

3. Sprinkle some salt, pepper, and ground oregano and let the sweet potatoes cook for about 15 minutes on low heat (or until they’ve become golden).

Suggested modifications:
• Mix some shredded carrots in your soup to make it more colorful.

• To make this soup more fulfilling, add in some shredded chicken or beef.

• Add some roughly chopped mushrooms if you feel like chewing on something.

C. Drinks

8. Strawberry and Collagen Smoothie

On the hunt for a new incredibly tasty and deliciously creamy smoothie?

Then, this almond milk, matcha powder, spinach and coconut water smoothie may be just what you need. The strawberries and banana add a nice sweet touch to this smoothie – there’s really no need to add honey.

9. Green Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Don’t worry! This isn’t one of those green-looking smoothies that should be gulped down in one go to avoid getting its taste

A word of advice: If you’re lucky enough to get fresh pumpkins, use them to prep your puree. Canned ones are not as sweet and can make your smoothie taste awful.

Suggested modifications:
• Instead of canned coconut milk, make a big batch homemade coconut milk. Keep it in the freezer for when you’ll need it.

• If you’re dairy-free, skip the cottage cheese and Greek yogurt.

10. Filipino Food Friday

Prepped with coconut sugar, vanilla extract, and gelatin, this refreshing drink made of tapioca pearls can be ready within an hour. Simply perfect for summer parties!

If you don’t do well with coconut (or if you just don’t have any on hand), you can replace the coconut sugar with some date syrup.

DIY date syrup

  1. Take 7 pitted Medjool dates and let them soak in 1 cup of water overnight.
  2. The next day, add your dates and your water to a high-powered blender. Blend until you get a smooth syrup.

D. Snacks

11. Almond Butter Bars

If you’re looking for sugar-free bars bursting with almond flavor, then this recipe is for you.

However, since this recipe calls for stevia, I suggest you use raw honey instead. Why? Well, stevia gets its sweet taste from steviol glycosides which have a hormone structure. As such, stevia can have contraceptive effects in both women and men.

Moreover, stevia can spell big trouble in individuals with autoimmune diseases.

12. Fruit Bars

Everyone loves fruit bars. And if you don’t, I’m pretty sure that this recipe will make you change your mind. These bars have a thick crust made from coconut flour, coconut oil, and maple syrup. To obtain the creamy filling on top, make sure you have fresh rhubarb, honey, gelatin, and some agar powder. And that’s it!

13. Marshmallows

Who’d have thought that homemade marshmallows could be a healthy way of adding some collagen to your diet?

Once you bite into these yummy marshmallows, you won’t go back to the store-bought ones. A perfect treat for kids and adults alike.

14. Cinnamon Covered Marshmallows

Fluffy marshmallows with a hint of cinnamon. Who’s in? Arrowroot powder, honey, maple syrup, pure vanilla extract, cinnamon, and gelatin. You really can’t go wrong with these simple ingredients now, can you?

15. Tasty Orange & Honey Gummies

Whatever you like to call them, I’m pretty sure your love for gummies has not decreased over the years. And with this recipe, you’ll be going down memory lane once again.

The organic orange extract and grass-fed gelatin powder make these cute little gummies so delicious and bouncy that you won’t be able to resist chewing on them.

Note: This recipe calls for vitamin C powder. As highlighted in the recipe, you want to avoid ascorbic acid, the type of vitamin C typically found in pills. This synthetic form of vitamin C is typically derived from GMO-corn.

16. Fruit Snacks

Running short of healthy treats? How about giving this recipe a try? The mixture of berries, fresh orange and lemon juices make these fruit snacks perfect for littles ones (or even yourself!).

Suggested modification:

  • Change the flavor of these fruity squares by using different juices that you love.

17. Finger Jell-O

Who said that Jell-O should be filled with dyes and all sorts of artificial flavors?
