Our products are loaded with nutritious, functional ingredients to help make your morning count. We're like that mom who sneaks kale into her kid's smoothie.
MCT = medium chain triglyceride. While the term sounds rather science-y, MCTs are a special type of fat that is easy for your body to digest. MCTs are quickly converted into ketones, which are a primary fuel source for your brain and muscles. MCTs aren't stored as fat in your body. They have been shown to help speed up your metabolism and can actually help you lose fat.
MCT oil has a neutral flavor and blends right into our creamer. We believe in MCT oil so much, we use it in all three of our creamers - Keto, Vegan and Collagen.
Did someone say healthy fat? Grass-fed butter is high in omegas and vitamins and much lower in lactose than pasteurized milk. Our grass-fed butter from pasture-raised cows has a creamy, luxe texture and serves a few additional purposes in our Keto Creamer:
● It’s delicious, let’s be real.
● The fat found in grass-fed butter helps metabolize caffeine more slowly, which means that you’re less likely to experience the afternoon crash you have after a more typical cup of coffee with cream and sugar.
● When combined with a nutrient-dense, balanced diet, healthy fats can actually help regulate your weight and decrease hunger levels!
That's right! Eating grass-fed butter can help you feel balanced and satiated longer to get you through your day. Bring on the butter!
Whey protein is a delicious, convenient way to increase your protein intake. We use it in our Keto Creamer. Typical whey proteins can be loaded with a ton of extra flavors, filler, chemicals and additives, but the whey protein we use has one ingredient: whey protein. Can you feel yourself getting whey stronger already? (Yeah, we went there)
Collagen is a dairy-free, flavorless protein made of amino-acids, which help our skin, hair, nails, joints and gut stay as healthy and functional as possible. It’s the most abundant protein in our bodies and is essential for maintaining elasticity in our skin. Over time as we age, collagen production naturally slows down and leads to wrinkles, dry skin, and weaker joints and skeletal structure.
Supplementing with pure collagen protein from grass-fed cows can keep your hair, digestion, joint health, and metabolism in great shape! Adding a splash of Picnik Collagen Creamer to your coffee is a super easy way to get a collagen boost each morning, no blending required. And unlike some of the other collagen products out there, you won't find any artificial sweeteners here, guys!
Coconut cream has a slightly higher fat content than coconut milk. Think less water, more coconut, contributing to the decadent, creamy texture of our dairy-free Vegan and Collagen Creamers.
Coconuts also contain a lipid called lauric acid which is known to support the immune system while offering antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory benefits. Similar to grass-fed butter and cashew milk, the healthy fats found in coconut cream support mental clarity and alertness, sustained energy, and a boost in metabolic function.
Cashew milk is the main ingredient in our Vegan and Collagen Creamers, making them rich, silky, smooth and 100% dairy-free. It contains the feel-good hormone tryptophan, which is known to contribute to happy, healthy thoughts and mood, along with a dose of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats for radiant skin.
Cashews are loaded with high quality fat and a variety of plant compounds which offer a boost in immunity. We love cashew milk as a dairy-free alternative that has absolutely no sugar, low carbs, and the good fats that are the backbone of so many great vegan and vegetarian recipes.
