Collagen Hot Cocoa
We all love hot cocoa during the holidays. Here at FINAFLEX HQ in Atlanta, GA, it’s starting to get a little chilly outside, so we decided it was time for something warm and cozy. Hot chocolate is a cold-weather essential, and we think it’s about time someone put a healthier spin on this holiday classic. This Collagen Hot Cocoa is the easiest way to get an extra boost of collagen and protein into your routine without sacrificing any holiday cheer. The best part? It’s easy, and only takes seconds to prepare. Let’s get started on this easy-peasy Collagen Hot Chocolate.
What You’ll Need (Ingredients):
1 pouch of instant hot cocoa (for an even healthier version, use the low-calorie kind)
1 scoop of FINAFLEX Pure Collagen
1 cup of milk (can also use water, but milk is creamier)
1 handful of mini marshmallows (optional)
That’s all you need! You might notice that the PURE Collagen is the only difference from typical instant cocoa, and you’d be correct. That’s the beauty of this recipe, it’s just adding in extra collagen and protein to your usual routine.
Our Pure Collagen is immensely smooth and totally flavorless, so you can add it to just about anything to add a little extra wholesomeness to your everyday treats. Pure Collagen packs in 19 grams of high-quality protein in every scoop, but only adds about 70 calories to whatever you’re making. That’s an awesome protein-to-calorie ratio if you ask us.
The collagen and the protein contained in it will also help you feel more satisfied, so you're not only getting a tasty treat when you make this easy collagen hot cocoa, but you’re also helping to prevent future cravings and snacking. You’ll feel fuller, and more satisfied, plus you’ll have the fuel you need to power through whatever is ahead.
Sound good? We agree! Let’s get going with this easy recipe!
How To Make It (Instructions):
- Heat up your milk (or water) in a microwave or on the stove. Usually, for this amount of milk, you’ll want to do between a minute and a minute and a half in the microwave depending on your wattage. Be careful not to get the milk too hot, as you’ll run the risk of burning the collagen powder, which can affect the taste.
- Add in your hot chocolate mix and a scoop of our Pure Collagen powder
- Mix until thoroughly combined. To make this process easier, we recommend using our Flex Mixer. It effortlessly removes any powder or clumps without endless stirring. It also froths up the milk a bit, adding a light and fluffy consistency.
- If you want the most authentic hot cocoa experience, top it off with some mini marshmallows!
That’s it! It couldn’t be easier to mix in a little extra protein and collagen into your diet. No matter what your health and fitness goals look like, collagen can be an immensely beneficial supplement to include in your routine.
