If you are on a diet or love relaxing with a healthy smoothie, we have the recipe for you. Our recipe for the day contains collagen. Collagen helps your skin, hair and nails become stronger; and it is very healthy. The other ingredients are soymilk, yoghurt and a frozen banana (banana is an anti-cancer fruit). Here is the video: http://bit.ly/Soy-Banana-Collagen-Smoothie

If you are not fond of soy milk, skimmed milk or fat-free milk will also do the trick and Ookami from AnimeFanatika also suggests his secret ingredient: a teaspoon of Vanilla essence. It helps to take the edge off if you don’t like the taste of collagen.
