My husband and I have been searching for a great tasting protein powder without added sweeteners. It’s also important that the product be soy-free. Not only do I like the control of adding my own sweetener, if needed, I now have to be more careful about my soy intake.
We like to make smoothies and shakes with added protein. Unfortunately, It’s hard to find a healthy protein powder that is soy-free and free of added sugars or sweeteners. What’s even harder is finding one that actually tastes good.

BUBS Naturals Collagen Peptides and Protein
As if BUBS Naturals was listening to our conversation, I got an email from them offering samples of some of their products, including an unflavored collagen protein powder with ZERO added sweeteners.
What We Got to Sample
BUBS Naturals sent us an assortment of their collagen protein and MCT oil powder.
Bubs Natural Collagen Protein without Added Sugars or Sweeteners
On the BUBS website, they state that collagen promotes health and healing from the inside out and is critical to the support and reconstruction of joints. Collagen also aids in recovery after exercise. The combination of the proteins and amino acids in BUBS’s naturals collagen help strengthen skin, promote increased elasticity, and benefit smoothness while supporting healthy hair and nails.
With just two scoops of BUBS collagen protein, you get 20 grams of collagen peptides (bovine), 18 grams of protein, and only 70 calories. In addition, it has no soy, no dairy, gluten-free, and is non-GMO.
How to use collagen protein powder
You can add one or two scoops of the Bubs Naturals collagen protein powder into the beverage of your choice. This includes both hot and cold beverages.
I like to add protein powder to my smoothies. I love the smoothness of the BUBS Collagen Protein powder when I added it to my smoothie. It tasted just like a regular smoothie and the only way I could tell there was added protein powder was by the little bit of foam at the top of the smoothie.
Here’s my strawberry banana smoothie recipe using BUBS unflavored protein. This makes one serving, is super quick to make, and is a great healthy option for busy mornings.

MCT Oil Powder
MCT is a healthy fat that has been shown to boost mental clarity, reduce gut inflammation, and promote overall digestive health. BUBS MCT Oil Powder is from 100% virgin coconut oil. This MCT oil powder is Keto approved, Paleo approved, and non-GMO. Like the protein powder, this powder is also unflavored and has no added sweeteners.
How to Use MCT Oil
You can mix one scoop of the MCT oil powder into the beverage of your choice such as coffee, tea, smoothies, water, and more.
I added a scoop to my hot tea the other day. It easily mixed and dissolved into the hot liquid. It gave my tea a bit of creamy taste and feel, but without that oily feel.
Where to Get BUBS Naturals Collagen Products
