Blooming Collagen Smoothies! With many places still shut down, my desire to go out and try new, refreshing, and delicious drinks grows with each passing day. If this shut down has taught me one thing its this, why wait for things to open when I can learn how to do them myself. So, like many who seek answers to life's greatest unknowns, I turned to google.
