NOTE: Option 2 is a great way to get your daily coconut oil in!!
When adding coconut oil to any recipe, you add anti-bacterial (antibiotic), anti-viral, anti-fungal & overall anti-microbial, medicinal & fat-burning nutrition to your creation :) With the extra peppermint essential oil, also a powerful antibiotic/antiviral/anti-microbial, you now have a powerful medicinal drink that tastes AMAZING and won't harm your "good bacteria" (probiotics)!! AND the peppermint will sure open up your sinuses!!
SICK?? Doctor's orders.... drink healthy hot cocoa :) How fun is that?!
OPTION 1: Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat to desired temperature, adding the collagen powder at the end once the heat is turned off.
OPTION 2 (healthiest): Instead of heating this mixture on the stovetop you can step up the nutritional content by blending all ingredients in a high-powered blender, on high speed, the coconut oil/butter and collagen powder to make it a frothy/creamy "chocolate latte"! Blend on high until it heats to desired temperature.
Enjoy a healthy, medicinal dose of caprylic acid (anti-fungal/anti-viral/anti-bacterial; thyroid fuel; fat-burning; brain nourishing) goodness from coconut oil and the good, saturated, nourishing, digestible fats from the grass-fed butter. If you add the collagen powder, technically this "drink" is a "meal" balanced with fantastic fats and proteins... and ZERO sugar crash! This makes for a healthy addition to any breakfast, and could be considered a healthy, small mid-day meal. There is a lot of medicinal value and nourishment in this brain-nourishing, fat-burning treat!!
*Feel free to use Stevia, xylitol or monkfruit to taste, if on Candida Detox, or raw honey if you're not.
You're welcome! ;)
