AIP Health Random Stuff

The MOST AWESOME Aussie and Kiwi Collagen Veggie Blend Giveaway!

October 17, 2017

Vital Proteins Collagen Giveaway

“There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get un-birthday presents, and only one for birthday presents, you know.” – Lewis Carroll

It’s my birthday, so I’ve decided to hand out some presents!

*I know I look slightly manic in these pics. Balancing 6 tubs of heavier-than-they-look Collagen Veggie Blend while having your pic’ taken is not quite as easy as it sounds!

You probably already know that Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, aka The Paleo Mom, teamed up with the good peeps at Vital Proteins to create an AIP-friendly, gut-healing, collagen blend that includes 20 grams of protein from grass-fed collagen peptides per serve, along with 3 serves of organic veggies and 1 serve of organic high-antioxidant fruit.

It’s a GREAT way to get more nutrient density into your diet (or the diets of family members who are not so great with veggies, perhaps…?)

And if you didn’t know about it, you do now!

But, did you know that my little recipe for ‘Veggie Blend’ Matcha Caramel Slice made me one of four winners to receive six tubs of Collagen Veggie Blend AND have the recipe included in a special printed booklet that Vital Proteins will be delivering along with every tub of Collagen Veggie Blend?

Not too shabby, I reckon! 

I have another recipe for a POWER Green Smoothie with pear, lemon and spinach, too…

Veggie Blend mania

Here’s the thing, though; 630g (22 oz) of Collagen Veggie Blend retails for US$79.00. When you convert that to down-under dollars we’re talking about AU$101.00 or NZ$111.00! That’s getting a little pricey for most of us… Especially when you add postage and packaging on top.

So, today I’m sharing the love!

Yep. Since it’s my birthday, I’ve decided to give away my 6 tubs of these lovely tubs of green goodness to my Australian and New Zealand subscribers. I’m heading to Auckland on Thursday, so I’ll pop a tub (or two or three) into my luggage for the Kiwi contingent!

Collagen Veggie Blend Giveaway

If you’d like a little inspiration for just what to do with your Collagen Veggie Blend, check out these recipes from all the winners at The Paleo Mom.


Here’s what you need to do to enter…

The Giveaway


There are 2 easy steps to enter the giveaway –

1. Subscribe to my newsletter. Either signup HERE or click the link at the top right corner of this page. If you already receive my newsletter, you’re good to go! No need to sign up again.

A Couple of Things to Note:

This giveaway is open to Australian and New Zealand residents only. I know that’s frustrating if you’re further north! So often down here, giveaways are limited to US residents – so, I’m giving the Aussies and Kiwis a turn

Feel free to forward this to any friends or family who may be interested – especially those with family members who are not so great with eating their veggies!

The winners will be chosen at random on Tuesday 31st October at midday Australian Eastern Time.

The giveaway has now ended – Congratulations to Robyn, Sally, Lisa, Mechelle, Lorraine and Sharon

And, if you’d like to order your own tub of Collagen Veggie Blend, just click on the teal button to be taken directly through to the Vital Proteins site:

    Oh happy birthday wonderful Joanna! And what a gorgeous human being you are to giveaway the giveaway you won! I am currently working on a paleo vege pie and would LOVE to add this godsend of a produc to it – to give it the gut healing boost it needs! Happy happy day to you x

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 8:59 am

      Ooooh – Paleo veg’ pie sound yummy! I look forward to seeing that…

      Good luck, lovely Anna!

    • Regan October 17, 2017 at 10:10 am

      Oh gosh that sounds delightful. If you have success can you send the recipe!

      I’m trying to find a good egg free paleo zucchini fritter recipe. No success with what I’ve cooked up so far.

  • Felicity October 17, 2017 at 9:09 am

    I think I would like to try and add it to a cauliflower and carrot “cheese” I make but that depends on the flavour! But I know it would definitely work in my green smoothie of avo, parsley, spinach, kiwifruit and water!

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 9:55 am

      I’d like to try your cauli’ ‘n carrot ‘cheese! Colour me intrigued!

      Good luck, Miss Felicity!

  • Naomi October 17, 2017 at 9:21 am

    Oh yes please Jo! I’ve just started up my vege garden over here and will be putting the zuchinnis in soon so I’d be living this collagen blend to make some zuchinni cheese but also Mango season has started so your gorgeous mango moose thingy is going to be getting a good run for all it’s worth if I can get a tub of that blend!!!!
    Please please (the very isolated Westie!)

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 9:54 am

      Hey lovely Naomi! Love that you’ve got your veg’ garden underway. Go you!

      Best of luck!

  • Kay October 17, 2017 at 9:21 am

    I have never used collagen in recipes before and have stuck to the standard smoothie/hot drink. Definitely need to expand and have a go at the AIP friendly matcha caramel slice – have the tiger nuts ready just need the collagen.

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 9:53 am

      You’re half way there, Kay! Best of luck.

      PS – are you in AU or NZ?

  • Danielle October 17, 2017 at 9:26 am

    Thank you for this opportunity! It is often hard to get great gut healing supps here in Oz. I currently use Great Lakes would like to this try this in my smoothies, baked goods and in my daily cup of tea – depending what it tastes like – as it would really help increase my vegie intake and My Miss 16 too.

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 9:52 am

      Hey Danielle – there is a definite ‘green’ taste to the Veggie Blend. I love it in smoothies and baking, but perhaps a slightly less ‘grassy’ flavour in my tea…

      Good luck!

  • Robyn October 17, 2017 at 9:26 am

    Happy Birthday Joanna! I’ve been itching to make your matcha caramel slice, but as you’ve mentioned getting the Veggie Blend is a little out of my budget right now. Plus there have been so many recipes in the last few months that all the bloggers have been making – so many choices!! It would also be exciting to create some recipes of my own.

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 9:51 am

      Hi Robyn! – perhaps you will get the opportunity?

      Best of luck

      PS – are you in NZ or AU?

  • Mon October 17, 2017 at 9:27 am

    I want to make compliant marshmallows! Yummy, sticky vanilla marshmallows for when i want a treat!

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 9:50 am

      Ha! I love your adventurous spirit – the collagen would make for a very green marshmallow (and don’t forget, this is collagen, not the gelatin that sets)

      Good luck, Mon!

  • Lisa Doodeman October 17, 2017 at 9:34 am

    Happy Birthday Joanna! I love the look of your matcha caramel slice but unfortunately I find sugar in all forms so addictive for me. I will enjoy with my eyes only. 😉 Therefore I am going to try making crackers and adding it to some meals to get my younger children eating more veges, I already hide much more than they know they are eating! I am in Australia 🙂

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 9:48 am

      Hey Lisa – I think this would be a great addition to plantain crackers! Great idea!

      Best of luck.

  • Ashleigh Croucher October 17, 2017 at 9:34 am

    Oh happiest of birthdays to you!! I absolutely love this brand but often can’t afford it as I’m not able to work due to my autoimmune issues flaring up really badly for the last year or so. I love putting these in my smoothies – I have to take a lot of gross powdered supplements so I find it’s easiest to hide them in a smoothie! But I like to make them as nutrient dense as possible. I also add collagen to a lot of our food in summer when it’s too hot to eat bone broth based foods (we live in Brisbane, Australia – it gets hot!!). Thanks so much for this opportunity and happy birthday again xxx

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 9:48 am

      Thanks Ashleigh!

      The Collagen Veggie Blend is the PERFECT addition to smoothies!

      Best of luck!

  • Kay Poletti October 17, 2017 at 10:09 am

    I’ve been experimenting with making protein bars and so far my best, most flavoursome, most un-fall-apart-keep in the handbag, doesn’t include coconut bar is based on tigernuts (which I bought back from Australia, much cheaper). This veggie fruity collagen mix would be a great addition taste-wise as my bars always include some pumpkin, cinnamon, and/or apple. And collagen is soooo expensive so thank you for your generosity and the chance to win a tub and congratulations on your win? I live in NZ

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 10:30 am

      Oooh – that sounds fantastic, Kay!

      Good luck!

  • Regan October 17, 2017 at 10:13 am

    I’m boring, I just make gummies and drink I spoonful in water every morning. Just gets me sorted for the day lining my gut. I have this with the bioceuticals IM Repair. Game changer for anyone who has percictant gut pain.

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 11:07 am

      Gummies are not boring!!!

      Best of luck, Regan 🙂

  • Nicole kuepper October 17, 2017 at 10:24 am

    Happy birthday Jo! Hope you’re well! Thank you for this generous give away!
    My 3 year old son and I make a smoothie together every morning and he gets the special job of putting in this ‘magic fairy dust’ as he calls it. He normally wants to put in way too much so I need to control his scoop size! But as you pointed out it’s very expensive to order so this would be a great help!

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 11:07 am

      I think ‘magic fairy dust’ is an even better name for it!

      Good luck, Nicole!

  • Gwenda Betbeder October 17, 2017 at 10:26 am

    Happy birthday Joanna. Thank you for being so generous!
    I have to try winning another giveaway! I’ve never tried using anything like a collagen veggie blend but I’ve always wanted to try making zucchini cheese… I’m in NZ 🙂

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 11:08 am

      Hi Gwenda! – I hope you are enjoying your cookbook!

      Zucchini (ciurgette?!?!) cheese ROCKS!

      Good luck.

  • Kate October 17, 2017 at 11:21 am

    It’s the kind of thing I’d add to EVERYTHING to get some extra goodness into my toddlers!

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 11:25 am

      It’s a great sneaky ingredient to get wee ones eating more greens, Kate!

      Good luck!

      PS -a re you in AU or NZ?

  • Ruth October 17, 2017 at 11:41 am

    This looks fantastic! My husband has finally agreed that he needs to start eating healthy after 11 years and I would love something like this to put in a breakfast smoothie for an easy and yummy breakfast option. ?

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 11:46 am


      Best of luck, Ruth.

    • Ruth October 17, 2017 at 1:05 pm

  • Lorraine Dodd October 17, 2017 at 11:48 am

    Oh you sweet person for sharing the gut-love! I’m in NZ. Cooking and me share a tense and relatively unhappy relationship. (Spot the Don’t-care-well-for-myself personality type which created my health issues in the first place!). Some would say I should have learned my lesson and that I should have energy for eating more nutritiously. I agree! However! Leopards and spots, I also say. So! Having magic everything in a tub is my dream-come-true! I would consume it as unceremoniously as possible, as often as possible!

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 3:06 pm

      Hello lovely Lorraine!

      Change is hard, isn’t it?

      Best of luck!

  • Dacey October 17, 2017 at 11:49 am

    I’m in AU and I would love to have this to add to my kid’s smoothies. They’re good kids who choose to just look away while I’m filling the blender. They don’t want to know what kinds of weird (AKA nutritious) things I’m putting in, just so long as it tastes good!

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 3:06 pm

      Greens by stealth, Dacey. I like it!

      Best of luck.

  • Margarita Fang October 17, 2017 at 12:31 pm

    Thank you Joanna for sharing your winnings!
    Finally an AIP giveaway I can enter ?
    The first thing I will be making with my winning Tun of Veggie Blend is your winning recipe “Veggie Blend Matcha Caramel Slice”

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 3:07 pm

      Hello Margarita!

      Yes! – we often miss out down here, don’t we?

      Good luck!

  • Elinor October 17, 2017 at 1:00 pm

    Thank you for the great opportunity, I’m looking forward to blending up some great AIP smoothies with the veggie blend, acerola cherry powder, berries and coconut milk. Yum!

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 3:08 pm

      Hi Elinor – your smoothie combo sounds delish!

      Good luck!

      PS – are you in AU or NZ?

  • Rachelle October 17, 2017 at 1:44 pm

    I haven’t been able to use protein powder for so long. I do not have an AIP one and I haven’t found one in NZ at all! I would start off with some morning smoothies and hopefully move on to some baking for special treats 🙂

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 3:08 pm

      Rachelle – this baby is perfect for smoothies.

      Best of luck.

  • Tali October 17, 2017 at 1:51 pm

    Happy birthday! I’ve been wanting to try this for ages! I would totally make the Salted Caramel Pumpkin Spice Collagen Balls from I’ve been wanting to make these since I saw them!

    I’m NZ based and would love to win 🙂

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 3:09 pm

      Oh Tali – great idea! I saw that recipe and had the same thought.

      Good luck!

  • Kat October 17, 2017 at 2:13 pm

    Hi Joanna, I’d love to win some of this to try in a smoothie. I have Sjogren’s Syndrome and am easing myself into AIP gently. I’m in New Zealand.

    • Joanna Frankham October 17, 2017 at 3:10 pm

      Hello Kiwi Kat,

      Best of luck on your AIP experience and in the giveaway!

  • Lena October 17, 2017 at 3:52 pm

    Happy Birthday Jo. I will probably add the collagen veggie blend to my favourite afternoon drink of iced matcha tea made with sparkling mineral water and coconut milk

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 7:28 am

      Oooh – that sounds interesting!

      Best of luck, Lena.

  • Janiece October 17, 2017 at 3:56 pm

    Happy Birthday. I’m in Australia. I’m hoping it will help with some more portable food recipes for those times you’re going out and haven’t much time to cook

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 7:29 am

      Hey Janiece

      This is a great nutrient dense option (ergo, the birth of my Matcha Caremel Slice!)

      Best of luck!

  • Mechelle Fox October 17, 2017 at 5:22 pm

    Hi Jo, Wow your so generous!
    HAPPY birthday?
    I would make your Matcha Caramel Slice if I won! It sounds delicious. My fingers & toes are crossed.

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 7:30 am

      I’m sure with your creative talent, you’ll be whipping ups nutrient dense goodies in no time!

      (Don’t get cramp!)

  • Nicole October 17, 2017 at 6:49 pm

    Hello from New Zealand Joanne and thanks for sharing your birthday love! Looking forward to trying your winning recipe and also trying the blend in my coconut bites; coconut butter, macadamias, veggie blend and vanilla.

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 7:31 am

      Oooh – your bites sound more-ish!

      Good luck Nicole!

  • Sally October 17, 2017 at 6:53 pm

    Firstly, I love the photos!! I would love to add this to my kid’s smoothies (they are 4, 3 and 1). I have transverse myelitis and walk with a walking stock which is why I am AIP, but it is tiring to try and make everything from scratch for my family (I feel I spend all day in the kitchen). This tub would allow me to make them a quick snack and know that they are getting so much nutrition even though it’s a short cut for me. Thanks for the opportunity.

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 7:32 am

      Thank you, Sally! I felt a smidge ridiculous – but, a good cause!

      Good luck!

      PS – are you in AU or NZ?

      • Sally October 19, 2017 at 9:42 pm

        Oh sorry, I’m in Australia.

  • Renae October 17, 2017 at 9:29 pm

    I’ve been busting to try this. However my wish for winning this is less about me and more about others. I regularly care for a family of kids who have a multitude of emotional/physical issues. The family have not made the connection between their highly processed diet and the issues. I feel they will one day but are not there yet (it’s a journey for all of us, right?). Meanwhile I’d like to make every mouthful count when in my care and I think this is a perfect way to do this. (I’m in oz btw).

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 7:33 am

      Renae – they are lucky to have you 🙂

      Best of luck!

  • Susan October 18, 2017 at 1:10 am

    I think I would attempt to make a veggie mousse since it has a fruit included ! Thankyou so much for the opportunity to win a tub of Sarah’s Vital Proteins Collagen Veggie Blend – yes sounds rather expensive but wonderful at the same time !!!

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 7:35 am

      Hello Susan

      A veggie mousse sounds intriguing!

      Good luck!

  • Rinna October 18, 2017 at 7:53 am

    Omgosh…! My budget has never been able to stretch as far as trying some collagen!
    I’d love to give your caramel slice a whirl ?

    Happy Birthday ?

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 8:01 am

      Cheers, lovely Rinna.

      And, good luck!

  • Catherine October 18, 2017 at 12:11 pm

    Thanks so much for your wonderful birthday offer !!! I’d love to make some fruit jellies for my grandchildren… and does it get rid of wrinkles!!!!?

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 12:29 pm

      Hi Catherine – just to be clear, this is collagen, not gelatin (so it doesn’t set like jelly) BUT – it’s GREAT for your skin!

      Good luck!

  • Sandra October 18, 2017 at 12:11 pm

    Oh wow, i didn’t even know about this product. It sounds great. I would love to try it. I would make salmon vegie burgers. It would save me having to chop sooo many veges morning noon and night!

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 12:30 pm

      Hi Sandra – salmon veggie burgers sound delicious!

      Best of luck!

    Ahhh what an exciting giveaway. Paleo Mom is one of my go-to sources of information and I’ve been eyeballing this product since it was released. I think I’d probably pop it on my morning porridge concoction or maybe in a smoothie. (I’m in NZ.)

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 12:30 pm

    Happy Birthday! I’m a South Aussie, been on AIP for nearly 5 months. Glad to come across your site as I’m always looking for recipes and support in this lifestyle. My new favourite recipe for collagen is a pumpkin spice protein ball using tigernut flour, pumpkin, dates, cinnamon, mace, ginger, and of course collagen. Would love to try it with the veggie blend. I’m also a BIG lover of caramel slice from way back, so definitely need to check out your recipe!

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 12:31 pm

      Your pumpkin spice protein ball sounds fab’, Nicole!

      Best of luck in the giveaway.

  • Paula October 18, 2017 at 12:24 pm

    Yay, just subscribed! I’m so looking forward to using the collagen in my after workout smoothies I make. I love adding frozen berries, collagen and coconut milk..whir it up and so easy to get extra gut healing protein in. It also keep me full while I make dinner so I am not dying of hunger LOL Thanks for doing this for us Aussie and Kiwi residents! Very generous of you XO

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 12:33 pm

      Hey Paula – this baby is just perfect as an extra boost of nutrient density into smoothies.

      It’s nice to be able to share the love down-under (we so often miss out, don’t we?)

      Good luck!

    Your caramel slice. I can do with something sweet. If I win, it’ll be sweet as, bro.

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 12:34 pm

      If it’s as ‘sweet as’, does that mean you’re a fellow Kiwi, Wendy?

  • Deborah October 18, 2017 at 2:16 pm

    Hi Joanna. Greetings from Canberra, Australia . I’ll be mixing the collagen vege blend into yoghurt, frittata, casseroles and baked goods, as I’m not a big smoothie fan. I love the VP plain collagen peptides, and would love to branch out!

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 2:51 pm

      Greetings Deborah-in-Canberra!

      I LOVE the idea of sneaking this into a frittata – green eggs!

      Good luck,


  • Karen hickey October 18, 2017 at 3:12 pm

    I’m here in Australia and I’ve been listening and following Sarah for years, love her work. I’m keen to get some of this goodness into my fussy kids- perhaps a smoothie, or sweet slice.

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 6:30 pm

      Hey Karen – I love Sarah’s work, too 🙂

      Best of luck.

  • Sharon October 18, 2017 at 4:40 pm

    Many happies Joanna. A very excited KIWI here by your incredible generosity. I have just discovered (after umpteen years) I have histamine intolerance, (low or zero DAO enzyme) which I am now trying to manage/fix. Just bought my first tub of vital proteins beef liver…funnily enough produced from NZ beef!! Anyhow, I wondered about about the veggie blend, but couldn’t afford it.

    What recipe will I use?…well with my very strict low histamine diet now, I will Give your matcha caramel slice a whirl…adapted without the dates (high histamine) plus add to my rather fabulous (even if I do say so myself!!) nutrient dense breakfast non cereal, cereal with lashings of coconut yoghurt!

    Good luck everyone, by the looks, it’s going to be a hard decision ?

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 6:32 pm

      Hi Sharon – histamines can be tricky, can’t they?

      LOVE the sound of your FABULOUS non-cereal!

      Good luck!

      • Sharon October 19, 2017 at 5:05 am

        They sure can Joanna, like a minefield sometimes but the upside to it is how creative I have become with meals/recipes! ?

  • Brenda Debenham October 18, 2017 at 6:15 pm

    I think adding this collagen to my mushroom recipes -soup, pate and sauces would be a nutritious advantage. I think my next batch of chicken liver mushroom pate might benefit too.

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 6:33 pm

      Oooh – That’s a great idea, Brenda. Adding it to pâté. Good thinking, Batman.

      Best of luck.

  • Brenda Debenham October 18, 2017 at 6:18 pm

    PS I am a Sydney resident

  • Christine October 18, 2017 at 6:24 pm

    Happy Birthday! Thanks for a giveaway to the land down under.

    I’d add it to my breakfast smoothie. I stopped having it as I needed more protein for breakfast. I sure miss it.

    • Joanna Frankham October 18, 2017 at 6:34 pm

      Christine – nothing wrong with a green smoothie and a burger patty (especially with added liver!) for a nutrient dense brekkie on the run.

      Good luck!

  • Jo October 18, 2017 at 7:53 pm

    I would love to try the matcha caramel slice and also try it in a smoothie. What an awesome give away. Thank you!

      Pleasure, and good luck!

  • Audrey Olsen October 18, 2017 at 8:05 pm

    Thank you so much for this generous give away! I have been wanting to try this product for sooo long but the cost is prohibitive. There’s so much I’d love to try but as I’m a big caramel slice fan I definitely want to try your matcha caramel slice recipe. I live in Australia. Thanks Joanna ☺

  • Kaye van der Straten October 18, 2017 at 9:14 pm

      How did I miss you, lovely Kaye?

      Good luck up there in the North!

  • shelley October 19, 2017 at 5:49 am

    Thanks for sharing! I look forward to giving the matcha slice a go! Happy Birthday 🙂

    • Joanna Frankham October 20, 2017 at 7:45 am

      Hi Shelley!

      Hope you love it!

      Best of luck.

  • Reuel October 19, 2017 at 6:30 am

    What an awesome gift you are sharing! Boy I would have a field day if I got my hands on this. My daughter and I both have ceoliac disease and it’s so hard to keep kids happy with healthy food so I would try adding it to an avocado, banana and strawberry smoothie. Also I’d love to trying it in a date and coconut bliss ball.

    • Joanna Frankham October 20, 2017 at 7:46 am

      Hi Reuel – Kids can be tricky, especially when they have further dietary challenges.

      Good luck!

  • Reuel October 19, 2017 at 6:31 am

    Oh oops, I’m in New Zealand? Thanks

  • Justine October 20, 2017 at 8:03 pm

    I’d give your caramel slice a try! Hope your birthday is as fabulous as this giveaway ???

    • Joanna Frankham October 25, 2017 at 6:13 am

      Hi Justine… I’m having extended birthday celebrations (thanks to this post!)

      Best of luck.

      PS – are you in Oz or NZ?

      • Justine October 25, 2017 at 7:40 am

        Thanks Joanna! I love a good birthday that extends over a month or more!!! Ooops, I’m in Australia 🙂

  • Stephanie Lee October 21, 2017 at 8:08 am

    I used to start my day with a smoothie and a spoonful of vital greens, that is now gone because of the pea protein, so that would be my first stop. Whenever I cook, bake ir blend, I add gelatine, so I’d probably throw some collagen in instead to see where it tastes good. (I’m an aussie because my email address doesn’t give it away)

  • Anthea October 21, 2017 at 9:46 am

    I listen to the paleo view and have wanted to try Sarah’s veggie blend collagen!! Your matcha caramel slice sounds amazing I’d be definitely making that! Thanks Joanna.

    • Anthea October 21, 2017 at 9:47 am

      Whoops, I’m in Australia!

    • Joanna Frankham October 25, 2017 at 6:15 am

      Hi Anthea – good luck to you!

  • Sjaan October 21, 2017 at 4:10 pm

    Would love to try this! Can imagine it would work well in an AIP shepards pie. I have just gone AIP so trying to learn all of the products I can have 🙂

  • Sheryl October 22, 2017 at 5:36 pm

    Hi Joanna. I think the matcha caramel slice sounds amazing, so I’d probably try that first. NZ

  • Kahu October 22, 2017 at 6:52 pm

    Waaaaaaaaa this is the sweetest thing giving away your giveaway on your birthday! This might sound a bit gross but I mix coconut oil, carob (or cocoa which I can do a little of), honey, collagen, and barley greens together as a sweet pick me up, this would be perfect! I also have some matcha I do nothing with so your slice would be a definite go?happy birthday! Kahu (nz)

    • Joanna Frankham October 25, 2017 at 6:20 am

      Hi Kahu

      That doesn’t sound at all gross (to me, anyway!)

      Good luck!

  • Amanda October 25, 2017 at 3:21 am

    What an amazing product – this really makes no excuse for healthy eating. A much better solution to than adding nutrients to my diet than manufactured vitamin blends (which I spend far too much on).
    I look forward to adding it into super smoothies. It’s the only way I seem to be able to incorporate breakfast into my busy day. I’m an Aussie girl.

    • Joanna Frankham October 25, 2017 at 6:20 am

      Hi Aussie Amanda!

      Here’s to some SUPER smoothies! …good luck.

  • Tracey Peebles October 25, 2017 at 9:49 pm

    I’m an Aussie and being 5 weeks in on my AIP journey, I’d love something I could add to my soups and casseroles.

    • Joanna Frankham October 27, 2017 at 8:16 am

      Hi Tracey – congrats on hitting 5 weeks!

      Best of luck

  • Maria October 27, 2017 at 7:39 am

    Wow, congrats on winning the comp and thank-you for sharing the love! I’d have to try your matcha slice -sounds yum, and then I’d throw it into my smoothies and I’d be keen to see how it would go in my salted caramel protein balls…. oh the fun I’d have trialling the tub of goodness. Enjoy NZ 🙂

    • Joanna Frankham October 27, 2017 at 8:17 am

      Mmmm – salted caramel protein balls sound mighty fine, Maria!

      Good luck!

  • Ann October 27, 2017 at 7:55 am

    I didn’t even know that AIP collagen existed. How excited am I. Thank you Joanna and Happy Birthday!
    Being a newbie to AIP, I would try making a smoothie. I hope that response is not too boring This way the recipe won’t be overwhelming for me and my Hashimoto’s. I get loaded up with the good stuff and so does my family. They love smoothies but haven’t taken 100% to the whole diet thing. Maybe I could try your smoothie recipe – yummy.

    • Joanna Frankham October 27, 2017 at 8:19 am

      Hello Ann (of NZ or Australia?)

      Collagen from pasture raised cows (or piggies) is definitely a thing. And this baby has an extra boost of fruit and veggie goodness. GREAT for hiding in smoothies for little people!

      Best of luck to you – in the draw and on your AIP adventure

      • Ann October 27, 2017 at 8:32 am

        Hi Joanna, it’s Ann from Australia.
        Ooooh definitely want to make it my new thing! Sounds very nutritious and always nice to feel a little bit naughty when hiding good ingredients 🙂

  • Lisa October 27, 2017 at 9:03 am

    Hi, Lisa from Australia.
    Happy birthday month Joanna, finding your site has been a life saver for me as I have put my 15 year old son on the AIP and have loved using your recipes. So far we are a month in and going well but I am struggling to get his greens into him so the veggie blend would literally be a lifesaver. I know the caramel slice would go down a treat but would love to try the smoothie. It is wonderful to have an Australian resource!

  • Susan October 27, 2017 at 11:24 am

    Oooh, I’d love to include it in the smoothie I make from I am going down the parasite removal route at present and this smoothie with your collagen blend would be just the bees knees! Thanks from a fellow Aussie!
