Ohh man. This collagen hot chocolate! It’s so so good you guys and I am beyond excited to be sharing the recipe with you. It’s creamy, chocolatey, and just the right amount of decadent.

In all honesty I haven’t always been the biggest fan of hot chocolate. Something about a typical version always seems to give me a tummy ache and so I just sort of steer clear of it. When it’s too sweet, made with dairy, additives and artificial flavors my body just says NOPE.

Can you guys relate? 

It wasn’t that I didn’t like the IDEA of hot chocolate. It’s just that the ingredients never really vibed that well with me. 

That is until I started making this yummy AF version. It’s perfect because you can make it as sweet as you like, with whatever type of natural sweetener that works for you. I usually use maple syrup because – YUM, but coconut sugar and honey are also super good. The choice (slash what you have available in your pantry 😂) is yours.

I’m not gonna lie. Discovering how to make bulletproof coffee AT HOME was nothing short of a life changing experience for me.

I had tried it a few times and heard people talk about it for a long time before I made it myself, because somehow it seemed intimidating. Every time I even THOUGHT about making it myself I ended up with more questions than answers.

What even IS bulletproof coffee?

Is bulletproof coffee good for you?

Can you make it hot AND cold?

Do you need a blender to make it?

Is it sweet? Not sweet?

How do you make it so creamy?

What does it taste like?

But mostly – how good could coffee with butter and coconut oil even BE?!

Well my friends, after taking a big deep dive into the world of bulletproof coffee (or boosted coffee, as some call it) I’m so very happy to report that when you make it right, it is indeed very, very good, and not at all hard to make.

Picture your morning cup of coffee all LUXE, creamy, and flavorful with a rich fullness that not only energizes you but ALSO satisfies your every wish for what a morning beverage could be.

Yup, ALL THAT.

Now do you see why I’m so in love?

It’s kind of like a latte but honestly better. Maybe like a latte on it’s very best day. A day where latte’s have superpowers.

This recipe is the second in a line up of Thanksgiving recipes that I have coming at you over the next week or so. It’s one of my favorite’s of the bunch and it fits perfectly with the blog post from last week for whipped parsnips with fresh herbs – because if a delicious and flavorful mushroom gravy belongs anywhere it’s on top of a pile of whipped parsnips or mashed potatoes 😍

This dish, like a lot of the comfort food recipes I share here on NK, reminds me so much of my grandma. She was a 4’11” queen of the kitchen – particularly when it came to comfort foods like a delicious gravy, a tender roast, or a warm and filling stew.

She was my first teacher in the kitchen – patient, kind and oh-so-good at making food taste freaking delicious.

I’ve taken her mastery of depth of flavor and used it to create a recipe for a healthier, gluten free, vegan, paleo and whole30 approved mushroom gravy that will make you feel all the comfort food feels.
