Thanks for the contest Mark! I’m just getting back into Primal, and didn’t realize you’d come out with these. Can’t wait for the store to have new stock so I can get some of my own.

Thanks for your note, Maura, and welcome back. We definitely had a run on that product. Plans are to have it back in stock the middle to end of next week.

I make a similar smoothie with a variety of frozen berries, including some from the yard. I’ve never tried adding peptides. Good idea! If you use frozen fruit (versus fresh) you don’t need to add ice. We like to use Greek yogurt but these days there’s a lot to choose from if you don’t do dairy. The addition of a small banana will give it a milkshake-like consistency.

I agree Rhonda, yum. I incorporate collagen peptides in most of my beverages and food as well.

Instead of spinach and basil, I would have used mint and kale. With a bit of dark chocolate on the side.
