Almond Hot Cocoa With Collagen

Cozy and collagen-loaded.
Hot Cocoa With Collagen

This hot chocolate has the decadent taste of Nutella but is much richer in nutrients! The antioxidants in cacao exceed those in red wine and even green tea. Cacao is high in magnesium, which can help to lower blood pressure and relax muscles, and it provides theobromine, a bitter alkaloid that supports healthy serotonin levels. The addition of collagen supports a balance of carb-to-protein ratio while providing gut, hair, skin, and nail support!
