Take a break from the cold weather and sweets to treat your skin from the inside out with this Collagen-Boosting Glowing Skin Hot Chocolate. With just a few ingredient swaps, easily boost your hot chocolate’s nutrition factor and transform it into a beauty-boosting brew.

(Yields 2 cups)

2 cups unsweetened almond milk
4 oz dark chocolate
2 tablespoons manuka honey
2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer (find on amazon or local health food store)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon raw cacao nibs, ground


  • Pour the almond milk into a small saucepan and place over medium heat.
  • While the almond milk is heating, place the chopped chocolate in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds. Stir and continue heating for an additional 30 seconds.
  • When the almond milk is just barely simmering, turn off the heat and add the melted chocolate, honey, cinnamon and Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour into two glasses and sprinkle with ground cacao nibs

*Note: Manuka honey differs from other types of honey because of its bioactive properties. It contains dietary methylglyoxal, which forms naturally in the manuka flower’s nectar and gives the honey its many healing properties. Clears and brightens skin, boosts immune system, improves sleep and is an overall health and beauty booster.
