If you love “Bubble Tea” or “Boba Tea” you know they go by many names including bubble milk tea, pearl milk tea, and tapioca tea. But you probably also know that those unique yet addictively chewy tapioca balls in the bottom of your cup are super high in carbs and sugar. Also made with strong tea (usually black, green or oolong) and milk, even more calories and carbs are packed into your cup with all the different flavored syrups or sugar added to the milk. Although super popular, unfortunately this super delicious Taiwanese invention is an indulgent treat that isn’t for everyday. 

Or is it?

Healthy Caramel Collagen Bubble Tea With Gelatin Boba Pearls (Sugar-Free, Low-Carb, Dairy-Free, Keto-Friendly)

Our recipe for this low-carb, sugar-free Caramel Collagen Bubble Tea turns something you’d drink on a cheat day, into something with nourishing good-for-you ingredients that you can and should drink everyday. 

Besides some strong black tea, almond milk, we’re adding Great Lakes Wellness Caramel Collagen to infuse this healthy bubble/boba tea recipe with delicious caramel flavor and everyone’s favorite protein rich body and beauty supplement: collagen peptides.

Collagen, the most abundant protein found in the body, is the “glue” that keeps our tissues together. And it’s also what keeps our skin youthful and radiant looking. Once we hit our late 20’s collagen production begins to decline (yikes!). But several studies have shown that daily collagen supplementation may help slow the effects of aging by stimulating your body’s own collagen making cells to rev up production. [1]

Although this formula is designed for smooth and healthy joints, it’s great for your skin, hair, and nails too!

All natural and perfectly sweetened with stevia, Great Lakes Wellness Caramel Collagen:

  • Supplies 12 grams of Verisol® Bioactive Collagen Peptides type 1 & 3 peptides per serving.
  • Is clinically researched to support skin elasticity and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Has hyaluronic acid, which also boosts skin hydration, buoyancy & suppleness while cushion & lubricate joints
  • Has added Vitamin C, an anti-aging vitamin and antioxidant, that helps support collagen production and fights damage caused by free radicals in the body. 
  • Provides MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), a potent anti-inflammatory compound which can contain sulfur which the body uses to produce protein and collagen. Found in our nails, skin, and hair, MSM can also help support healthy and pain-free joint mobility. Some studies have shown that it may also help with exercise recovery. [2, 3 ]
  • Is super delicious!

Great Lakes Wellness Caramel Collagen is also:

  • Quick dissolving and made with botanically sourced flavors & colors
  • Grass-fed 
  • KETO-Certified
  • Gluten-Free
  • Kosher + Halal
  • iGen Non-GMO Tested
