If you’re a long-time reader of She’s a Full on Monet, you already know we are obsessed with the latest and greatest in health and beauty. We’ve given you the lowdown on everything from gua sha tools to skincare fridges to Japanese beauty products. Well, today we’re here to tell you about what I like to think of as an every-bird-one-stone product: Naked Nutrition’s Collagen Peptides Protein Powder.
(Yes, the above is an accurate representation of my face upon discovering this product.)
Let me tell you a little bit about this miracle collagen powder — why I love it, why you’ll love it, why everyone will love it, and at the end I’ll even give you some bonus products from Naked Nutrition! Yes, you’re welcome.
What Makes Naked Nutrition’s Collagen Powder So Special?

The first thing that stood out to me about the Collagen Protein Powder is that it only contains one ingredient. Seriously. And that ingredient is collagen peptides from bovine hide, sourced from pasture-raised cows in Europe. No additives, no artificial sweeteners, no unidentifiable ingredients. This means a couple things: first, the collagen protein is completely odorless and tasteless, so you can mix it into anything. (Side note — this blends super well! You could even mix it into your morning coffee without noticing it at all.) Second, single-ingredient powders are way easier to incorporate into your lifestyle. You know exactly what you’re putting into your body, and you know what effects to expect from it.
Now let’s talk about the benefits. We’ve talked about collagen before, but it bears repeating — collagen is a freaking beauty miracle. It does wonders for your skin’s elasticity and it supports the connective tissues all throughout your body. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen naturally, so it’s important to supplement our diet with collagen to keep everything feeling well-oiled and working smoothly. In other words, collagen is everything your joints have been begging you for.
In addition to all those internal benefits, collagen improves your skin’s radiance (honestly, you will glow) and it will even promote healthy hair and nails. The amino acids in collagen play a key role in the production of keratin, which helps keep your nails strong and your hair healthy and shiny.
But here’s something else — Naked Nutrition didn’t stop there. Here are my top picks from this brand.

Obviously, this is what we’ve been talking about this whole time. But I’m so obsessed with this collagen powder that it bears repeating. Single-ingredient, packed with joint, skin, nails, and hair benefits, AND it will blend well into literally anything without changing the taste. Do yourself a favor and try it — seriously, you won’t regret it!
PB lovers, this one is for you. Again, only one ingredient — vegan powdered peanut butter. The peanuts are US-grown, non-GMO, and slow-roasted. If you like peanut butter smoothies, this protein powder is a better choice than straight up peanut butter — it has 75% less calories and 85% less fat than peanut butter, but it will still add that protein to your smoothie.
This protein powder is Naked’s version of your standard whey protein powder — except Naked’s is better. The only ingredient here is whey protein from grass-fed California cows. No additives, no sweeteners. If you do want a flavored version, Naked Nutrition also makes vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry versions.
If you like whey protein powder but your body has a hard time digesting whey from cows (looking at you, lactose intolerant friends), this is a great alternative. Again, this powder is a single-ingredient product (pasture-raised goat whey protein) and goat whey has less lactose than cow’s whey, so you can still reap the benefits of whey protein without the digestive troubles.
Need to get some more greens into your diet, but don’t want to spend money (or prep time) on veggies? Enter: Naked Green Powder. Blend it into smoothies (or even water!) or hide some in your favorite spaghetti sauce. The veggies in this powder contain prebiotics, probiotics, and adaptogens — these improve your gut health and reduce stress levels, as well as detoxing your body and improving immune function.
