Regardless of whether or not it’s for distraction, this Bullet Proof Hot Chocolate could be just the thing that you or your little one need. It’s junk free, healthy and easy to whip up! It can also be allergy friendly and refined sugar free.
And it only takes three steps. Just THREE steps. Anything this delicious and healthy with three steps is a winner, am I right?
I know you may be a little skeptical about the ingredients.
Yes it does taste just like creamy, delicious hot chocolate. No, your kids won’t be able to tell the difference. And if they can you should enter them into some taste testing contest because they are definitely expert level.
This hot chocolate is full of healthy fats including grass fed butter and coconut oil. And as a bonus if you add the optional collagen powder it has a protein boost and all the healing benefits of the collagen!
So what are the benefits of these ingredients??
Health benefits of grass fed butter include:
Anti-inflammatory properties due to butyric acid
Excellent source of Vitamins A and K
MCTs that are great for supporting the immune system
Health benefits of coconut oil include:
Fatty acids that can improve brain function
Lauric Acid which can kill microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses and fungi
MCTs that turn into ketones in the body which can help reduce seizures
Health Benefits of Collagen:

Improves bone and joint health
Rich in essential amino acids and protein
So basically there isn’t any excuse to not make it, right??
