Regular, Sugar Loaded, Highly Processed, Non-Organic Dairy Filled Hot Chocolate you would by at a coffee shop or in a ready made packet basically causes the opposite effects: digestive issues, hyperactivity, weight loss resistance, inflammation and is AGING.
The Secret ingredient in this Quick Rich Hot Chocolate is collagen. Collagen protein from pasture-raised, grass fed, hormone and antibiotic free cows and THIS IS nature's botox!
Quick Rich Hot Chocolate Recipe:
- 1 can of Organic Full Fat Coconut Milk (in a BPA Free can)
- 1 cup Water
- 4 TBL 100% Cacao Powder
- 1 TBL Collagen Powder
- 7 Drops of Stevia or 1 TBL+ Maple Syrup Grade B (sweeten to taste)
Whisk and heat until slightly frothy and very warm.
Organic Raw 100% Cacao powder is a superfood that has fiber, iron, magnesium, potassium and antioxidant benefits.
We tried the Bulletproof Chocolate Powder for this recipe today and loved it. Note, I have tried a generic type brand of organic cacao and I did not like the low quality taste.
Collagen is a a gluten free and dairy free source of protein from cows that will help lubricate your gut lining and joints, hydrates your skin to helps tighten and tone your skin including things like wrinkles and cellulite. Collagen aids in tissue repair that usually happens at night when you sleep so this helps with better sleep, muscle recovery, brain health and anti-aging.
We like Bulletproof Collagen and it is the only one we have used. FamilyforHealth.com/bpcoffee

Bulletproof Collagen is tasteless and dilutes well when you mix it into food or drinks so you can add a tablespoon into your smoothie, chia pudding, soups or desserts.
