Hot chocolate

Beautifying Hot Chocolate


Ah, the power of the raw chocolate. It’s an automatic feel good. Loving this antioxidant-rich, metabolism boosting beautifying elixir, oops I mean hot chocolate.  Rich in iron, fibre, magnesium and healthy fats, this sweet treat gives you a beauty boost, a nutrient boost and an energy fix any time of day. Adding a little collagen powder powers up the benefits.

NOTE: I double this recipe and fill an entire Vitamix container. I save the extra and have it in my fridge in glass jars for up to a week. So I get to enjoy it everyday.


  • 3 cups Non-dairy milk (try this quick hemp mylk recipe)
  • 1 tsp Maca powder
  • 1-2 tsp Collagen
  • 5 tbsp Raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or Raw honey 
  • A couple dashes Cinnamon
  • 1 dash Cayenne pepper
  • A pinch of salt
  1. Blend everything in blender, warm on stove hot.

  2. Enjoy slowly, without a task in sight. A good book, or you fav magazine will do.
