Bec’s Cocoa Tonic

I’m sharing with you my favorite morning beverage recipe. I love this soothing drink for several reasons: it is high in digestible protein, soothing to the mucosal barrier (and therefore awesome for the immune system and for reducing inflammation), a good source of minerals like calcium, magnesium and iron; rich in important fat-soluble vitamins & fatty acids like CLA; oh and it is also delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup of hot water
  • 1/4 cup of cold water
  • 2 tsp-1 T Great Lakes Gelatin (beef or pork)
  • 1 T cocoa powder (I prefer Navitas Naturals)
  • 1 T raw butter (you can use unsalted organic butter, but raw butter has a very different flavor and provides additional benefits to the immune system-beneficial enzymes & bacteria)
  • Optional: sweetener such as stevia or honey

How To:

  1. Add gelatin powder to a large mug and cover with cold water so that it dissolves completely (this is important! Otherwise you’ll have a very clumpy drink…you may need to mix with a spoon to make sure all the gelatin powder is covered with water).
  2. Bring 3/4 cup of water to a boil.
  3. Add cocoa powder to the mug.
  4. Once the water boils, add to the mug and stir thoroughly to mix the cocoa and gelatin.
  5. Add the raw butter and stir well. Enjoy!
