Nourishing Hot Chocolate

recipe by: Laura Mierzwa,  Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Culinary Nutrition Expert

 

Besides being the perfect way to sip your collagen, this Nourishing Hot Chocolate is special for a number of reasons.

 

The great benefits of Nourishing Hot Chocolate

  • it contains NO dairy
  • there is NO gluten
  • using 100% cacao means it's safe for anyone with nut allergies
  • there is NO sugar (the sweetness comes from the honey)
  • raw cacao powder is high in antioxidants
  • coconut oil helps to boost your energy

 

Why add Pure Collagen to my beverages?

  • it's an easily absorbed protein
  • collagen improves hair, skin and nails (with extended use)
  • it supports the health of the gut lining

 

So without further ado, here's the recipe!

 

Ingredients 

2 1/2 cups hot water

2 scoops Pure Collagen powder (coming soon!)

2 tbsp cacao powder

1 heaping tbsp coconut oil

1 1/2 tbsp honey

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Pinch of Himalayan salt

 

Directions

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend for 30 seconds! Serves 2 people.

 

Be sure to keep an eye out on our monthly calendars for in store samplings of this recipe, where you can also receive the Pure Collagen for 15% off. 

 

 

Enjoy!
