Avocado Lime Collagen Refresher

This incredibly thirst-quenching, hydrating and skin-loving drink serves 8 and you'll have them coming back for more so you might want to double the recipe!
Jul 8, 2021 | Joy McCarthy

I traveled to Mexico for a yoga retreat several years ago with my girlfriend Elaine and I can still, even now remember the smell and taste of this refreshing and tasty drink that greeted us upon arrival at the eco-resort. I loved it so much, it ended up having a permanent home in The Joyous Cookbook! 

This Avocado Lime Refresher has been leveled up! What that means is that I adapted the recipe from my cookbook. How? I added Genuine Health's Clean Collagen to this drink because I wanted to make it a skin-loving recipe too (see my discount code at the bottom). 


Collagen has many research-proven skin-loving benefits such as increasing the hydration of your skin to helping your skin maintain a youthful appearance.

There are many more benefits of collagen I talk about in this video where I answer the question: Is collagen worth the hype?

But let's get back to this incredibly thirst-quenching, hydrating and skin-loving drink that serves 8 people. You'll have them coming back for more so you might want to double the recipe.

This drink is perfect for...

  • Family BBQ's and outdoor picnics
  • A mocktail - the perfect non-alcoholic bevy!
  • Kid-approved and non-allergenic ingredients
  • Blood sugar balanced from the healthy fats
  • Incredibly hydrating from the electrolytes and rich in vitamin C 
  • Soothing for digestion from the fresh mint

What brand of Stevia did you use in this recipe. You mentioned that it did not have an after taste? Also how long will it stay fresh if I am the only one drinking it?

Made this last Night and it was delicious!! My blender could only hold 4 cups of coconut so it was a bit more concentrated, and still so good :) this will be on repeat this summer!
