To serve

  • optional whipped cream or coconut cream
  • square of dark chocolate or chocolate shavings 85% cocoa solids minimum


  • Heat the almond milk in a saucepan or in the microwave (90 seconds on high).
  • Pour into a jug, add the collagen peptides, cocoa powder, salt (plus vanilla extract / mct oil / sweetener, if using). Blend with an immersion blender until frothy. Alternatively, blend in a high speed blender.


Makes 1 serving of thick, creamy hot chocolate. Use a 250 ml cup to accommodate the froth. 
Nutrition: 2.5g net carbs, calculated without cream topping.  
I don't add sweetener, but add 1 tsp or more of powdered sweetener if you prefer. 
For a more traditional hot chocolate, replace 2 tbsp of almond milk with double / heavy cream or coconut cream and omit the mct oil. (changes the nutrition to 2.8g net carbs per serving)
