Try the Collagen Smoothie Jennifer Garner Swears to Be Delicious
The actress has been working with holistic nutritionist Kelly LeVeque in preparation for her upcoming movie, Peppermint, and part of her film-prep diet includes a protein-packed breakfast smoothie. The key ingredient? A collagen protein powder, which is known for improving skin and hair health. Oh, and Garner also added in some baby food from the company she co-founded, Once Upon a Farm, because why not?
"Today, I decided to play scientist and see if my Once Upon a Farm cold-pressed, organic purée—or baby food, if you’re a baby, but whatever—could be a substitute for fresh blueberries when I didn’t see any in the fridge," she wrote on Instagram. "Yep, it could."
Don’t be scared! It’s tastier than it looks! I started working with @bewellbykelly a few months ago to get ready for #PEPPERMINTmovie and have had her smoothie every day for breakfast since. Today, I decided to play scientist and see if my @onceuponafarm cold-pressed, organic purée (or baby food, if you’re a baby, but whatever) could be a substitute for fresh blueberries when I didn’t see any in the fridge. Yep, it could. 👏🏼👏🏼 ----- #BeWELLSMOOTHIE recipe: 2 scoops @primalkitchenfoods collagen protein powder (hot tip: I prefer the Chocolate Coconut Collagen Fuel) 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed 1 tablespoon chia seeds 1 tablespoon almond butter (if no one’s looking I use extra...😬) 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk Handful of fresh spinach Small handful of ice Very small handful of blueberries (please see almond butter. Also true here. 🤷🏻♀️) ----- Mix all ingredients together in blender and enjoy.

Garner's filling drink includes the collagen protein powder (her favorite is Primal Kitchen's Chocolate Coconut Collagen Fuel), flaxseed, chia seeds, almond butter, almond milk, fresh spinach, ice, and blueberries.
After blending all the ingredients, just sit back, sip, and enjoy for Garner-worthy skin, which is more like 30 going on 13, right?
