Bulletproof Hot Chocolate (Low Sugar, High Healthy Fat)

Chilly days call for BULLETPROOF HOT CHOCOLATE. 

Now, this delicious version of hot chocolate isn’t loaded with sugar. Ever notice the insane cravings that start to follow once you consume too much sugar?

You go sugar free or low carb for a while and then – BAM – one bite of a sweet cake or cookie or piece of bread and your cravings come back full force?

Carbs have been given a bad rap and many women are scared to eat them 🙈

I fell into this trap for far too long and it tanked my thyroid and adrenals👎

When it comes to carbs, quality matters. If you’re loading up on refined flours (which also contain toxic fortified nutrients), refined sugar, fast food, that “healthy” salad dressing which is full of vegetable oils and trans fats – THIS is the real problem.

We need carbs! Fruits and root vegetables are where it’s at. But processed sugar is still something I steer away from.

In this recipe, the highlight is on healthy fat. 

Fat helps to balance my blood sugar, it keeps my brain fuelled and it provides me with lots of energy. Plus, fat is incredibly important for hormonal health.

You need fats because they regulate the production of sex hormones, which can often be the reason why some teenage girls and women in general can experience amenorrhea (no period).

This hot chocolate has lots of hormone-balancing, brain fuelling fats. 

And in case you didn’t know, higher intake of fat (the good kind) can also help you combat cravings.

Amazing right? Not to mention this particular elixir is loaded with collagen, which not only gives it a hit of protein but is excellent for your hair, skin and nail growth PLUS it’s amazing for your gut health.

My go-to collagen is by CanPrev — their quality is outstanding.

So, enjoy this hot chocolate guilt free and know that as you’re sipping away, you’re supporting your hormones and nourishing your need for chocolate.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing a handful of recipes from my book; first up is my Coconut Collagen Coffee.

The holidays are coming up, which usually means a whole lotta holiday parties and heavier meals. This Collagen Coffee is the perfect drink to sip on the morning before a big meal. It’s truly satisfying, thanks to a healthy dose of fat from the coconut butter, which means it will keep you feeling fuller for longer. 

Holiday party tip; do NOT skip breakfast and lunch in preparation for a big holiday dinner! This will lead you to feel starved by the time dinner arrives, and you’ll indulge in ALL of the things. Instead, whip up this cozy elixir in the morning or afternoon to help keep your blood sugar levels stable until you get to your feast.

Anti-Aging Beautifying Tea

I hope you’re excited for the week ahead. If the weather holds up and it doesn’t rain, I’ll be spending some time outside, kayaking in the sun and stopping for fresh spring water along the way. 

It’s my favourite thing to do in the summer!

As we know, the sun can take its toll on our skin. We definitely need exposure to sunshine, but just the right amount. 

And to help support any sun damage, minimize those wrinkles and get clear glowing acne-free skin, my delicious Anti-Aging Beautifying Tea will do JUST THAT! 

A few reasons why this tea is so good for your skin:

It contains dandelion and nettle – two amazing herbs that gently support your liver in detoxifying. The more you can support your liver, the better your skin will be. In fact, the better your hormones and digestion will be too! It all goes back to the liver, so treat it well. 

Nettle is also incredibly rich in iron, which is great if you happen to be have heavy periods. You can simply get dandelion and nettle tea from your local health food store. 

As for cranberry, it supports the kidneys in flushing out excess wastes. It acts as a diuretic. BUT… be sure to purchase organic, unsweetened cranberry juice concentrate – the real stuff. 

Lemon adds a nice tang to this tea and is loaded with vitamin C (a detox vitamin), plus it supports bile release (which is great if you’re feeling constipated). Vitamin C is helpful in reducing fine lines and minimizing free-radical damage to cells. 

As for the honey (which is totally optional in this recipe), I suggest sourcing out a local raw honey. It’s antibacterial and antimicrobial and the perfect sweet addition to this beauty tea. Alternatively, you can use a touch of maple syrup or even lakanto as a sweetener (which is my fav and contains NO sugar!).

So let’s get to it…

Anti-Anging Beautifying Tea
