Mexican Collagen Hot Chocolate

November 13, 2019

As warm as a tight embrace and as soothing as a lavender-scented bath, Mexican hot chocolate is a rich mug of velvety chocolate, wintry spices, and a hint of heat from cayenne pepper or chili powder. It’s the perfect way to thaw after coming inside from a blustery snow storm, a day on the slopes, or to relish an evening cozied close to a sputtering fireplace. 

Our version of Mexican hot chocolate does not include any added sugars, can be made dairy-free, if desired, and is keto and Primal/paleo friendly. Simply warm the ingredients, whisk together, and plop a generous spoonful (or two) of whipped cream or coconut cream on top before sipping slowly.
