Nothing beats a cozy cup of cocoa on a chilly day! We use collagen protein and organic cocoa powder in this easy-to-make recipe for a healthy treat you can enjoy all season long. Remember, you can reduce sugar with unsweetened almond milk and use stevia or xylitol to sweeten. For an extra chocolatey version, use chocolate almond milk and BetterStevia™ Dark Chocolate drops. You can also add a splash of coffee or shot of espresso to create a mocha flavor, or make Mexican-inspired cocoa with a dash of organic cinnamon and cayenne!
