Strawberry Collagen Lemon Margarita

Frosty and delicious strawberry collagen lemonade margarita.

I'm super excited to partner with Vital Proteins to bring you another healthy spin on an old favorite recipe – Strawberry Collagen Lemon Margarita!


I've been sipping on the Vital Proteins Strawberry Lemon beauty collagen during the day a lot lately. It's so refreshing and light, and I love knowing I'm getting the gut-healing benefits of the collagen and probiotics, and also the skin and hair health that comes with collagen. But I knew that it had so much more potential than just being mixed into plain old water, so I started testing out Strawberry Collagen Lemon Margarita  (and kid-friendly mocktail!) recipes with it.

If you know me, you know I love a good margarita. I knew that the strawberry lemon flavor of the beauty collagen would lend so nicely to my beloved marg, and it already has a slight natural sweetness, so it wouldn't need much (if any) additional sweetener. We've been loving this new cocktail, and I especially love that it puts a new, healthier spin on an old favorite.

The best part is that my boys downed their drinks (pre-tequila of course), so I know that it passes the kid test. Easton asked for seconds, and thirds. It's also really fun to have them help muddle (crush) the strawberries.

I hope you all love them!

Strawberry Collagen Lemon Margarita



Cuisine: Mexican

Category: Drinks

PREP TIME: 5 mins

TOTAL TIME: 5 mins


  • 2 strawberries, hulled
  • 3 ounces cold water
  • 1 ounce honey syrup (recipe follows)
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 scoops Vital Proteins Strawberry Lemon Beauty Collagen
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes, plus more for serving
  • 2 ounces 100% agave tequila, blanco



  1. Add the strawberries, cold water, honey syrup, and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker. Use a muddler to crush the strawberries.
  2. Add the beauty collagen, then secure the lid on the shaker and shake vigorously for 5 seconds.
  3. Add the ice, and tequila if desired, and shake again for 5 to 10 seconds until chilled.
  4. Pour the cocktail through a strainer into a glass filled with ice. Garnish with lemon slices.

Honey Syrup

I substitute honey syrup for simple syrup (white sugar and water) in cocktails. Take 1 part honey and dissolve it in 1 part hot, but not boiling, water. Use a light-colored honey, such as raw clover honey, so the flavor of the honey does not overpower the drink. Make 2 cups (16 ounces) at a time (using 1 cup honey and 1 cup hot water) and store in a sealed bottle or container in the fridge for up to a month.
