Healthy Hot Chocolate (with Chocolate Collagen)

January 19, 2022

This healthy hot chocolate is naturally sweetened and made with just two ingredients: nut milk and chocolate collagen powder. It’s the perfect winter beverage to snuggle up with by the fire.

Do you find yourself frustrated with all the no-good ingredients that regular hot chocolate has? Ingredients like sugar, corn syrup, modified whey, hydrogenated coconut oil, nonfat milk, dipotassium, phosphate, and mono and diglycerides. Spoiler: Those ingredients are straight off the Swiss Miss ingredient label. 

If you’re done compromising your health with this traditional wintertime drink, we have the perfect healthy alternative… 

Chocolate Collagen

With a squeaky clean ingredient label, you’re getting grass-fed collagen peptides, natural flavor, cocoa powder, pink Himalayan sea salt, stevia, and monk fruit. All the good things, none of the bad. 

This creamy chocolate collagen will make the switch from unhealthy hot chocolate to healthy hot chocolate totally worth it.

It can be fun to spruce up a regular hot chocolate recipe. Try any of these variations for a slightly different flavor profile… 

  • Add a drop of organic peppermint extract. This is a great addition for those who prefer a mintier flavor, or for those who love Thin Mint Girlscout cookies.
  • Add a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
  • Add a few (healthier) marshmallows like Smash Mallow.



  1. In a small saucepan, heat the nut milk until just simmering.
  2. Add chocolate collagen.
  3. Use a handheld frother to froth until well combined.
  4. Pour the hot chocolate recipe into your favorite mug.
  5. Sip with caution (contents are hot!) and enjoy!
