1-2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop chocolate collagen powder
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
a few drops organic peppermint extract

Directions: a few ways to make this! Either whisk all ingredients together on the stove until it’s heated through, or add ingredients into a frother (my favorite way!) to make it extra creamy and frothy, or blend it on high on the heat setting of your blender until hot!
