Even though as an adult I don't particularly like Connecticut's brutally cold winter weather, I do remember loving it as a child. Winter meant bright colored snow suits, white fur hand warmers, and hot chocolate with baby marshmallows. It was so good, but without fail I would be cramped up and nauseous after. Most of the prepackaged drinks these days are loaded with ingredients that we can't pronounce. I replaced the fake packaged ingredients with raw, nutritious foods your body will thank you for.

Why is this hot chocolate healthier?
WHY do I drink this on the daily?? It's a great alternative to having coffee if you're sensitive to caffeine. You'll get the amazing benefits of Collagen Protein, AND Brain Octane Oil. This little drink is spiked with everything you need to improve cognitive function, digestion, skin, joints .. the list goes on! Enjoy this transformed hot cocoa (or should I say cacao) in the morning or as a healthy dessert to curb your pesky sweet tooth.
