Beautifying Mocha Mix Recipe | Real Food RN

I used to LOVE me a good mocha from my favorite local coffee shop. So sweet, and warm, and then wheeeee I went into my day. Only a few short hours later I would have the sugar slump and want more.

The problem with that is, the more caffeine you consume in a day, the longer it stays in your system. This leads to poor quality sleep, which in turn makes you want more coffee the following day! Well, that certainly doesn’t leave much room for beauty sleep! 

Vicious cycle.

Plus, sugar prematurely ages us!

What if you could drink healthy coffee or a healthy mocha?  What if this mocha was not only delicious, but also antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, hormone-regulating, anti-diabetic, and so much more? Would you give it a try? I’m in! Bonus: the collagen in this mix makes your hair, skin, and nails look great!

Ready for this one ladies? It will help those hormones AND make you beautiful!

Besides, who wants to spend the money on a mocha from the coffee shop that is just full of junk anyway. I enjoy making my own at home with my homemade mocha mix recipe!

Here is why this is good for you:

Protein Powder: an extra little insurance to make sure you are getting all of those amino acids into your body, aka the building blocks needed to rebuild and repair. Especially important if you live an active lifestyle!

Collagen Powder: collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and plays a key role in numerous bodily functions. Yes, collagen is important for healthy and youthful looking skin, but collagen’s health benefits are not just skin deep.

Cacao Powder: cacao (not to be confused with coco) is full of antioxidants, which are needed to combat the oxidative damage that our bodies endure every day! One study even showed that cacao may have the potential to be used for the prevention/treatment of allergies, cancers, oxidative injuries, inflammatory conditions, anxiety, hyperglycemia, and insulin resistance

Maca Powder: studies have demonstrated that maca showed significant energizing effects in early-postmenopausal women, with a significant improvement in concentration accompanied by an antidepressant-like and sedative influence. It also has a positive influence on endocrine glands to regulate the hormonal balance in women, who have just entered menopause

Turmeric Powder: turmeric is antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and has been shown to be beneficial for people who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. It also has been shown to have anticancer and anti-diabetic properties. Elemene derived from turmeric is approved in China for the treatment of cancer

Beautifying Mocha Mix

This mocha is not only delicious but is also an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, hormone-regulating, anti-diabetic, and so much more. Bonus: the collagen in this mix makes your hair, skin, and nails look great!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chocolate protein powder
  • 1/4 cup grass-fed collagen powder
  • 1 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 Tbsp maca powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • Pinch sea salt

Instructions

1. Combine all ingredients in a mason jar, cover and shake until combined.

2. Store in an airtight container (the jar with a lid) in your kitchen cabinet. Lasts indefinitely. Makes about 3/4 cup.

3. Add 1-2 Tbsp to your morning coffee and mix until dissolved. I like to add in a little butter or coconut oil and then mix it with this handy little milk frother to make a bulletproof mocha!

Notes

I drink an adaptogenic mushroom coffee so I get the benefits of caffeine without the jitters and anxiety later. That is a great addition to this mix! HERE is where you can learn more about it. Very good stuff! Use the coupon code “REALFOODRN” to get 10% off your order.

Another favorite way to enjoy it is to sprinkle over homemade ice cream!

  1. This recipe looks great but as a non-coffee drinker, is there another way to use this? Do you know if you could make it with a tea or steamed milk? Thanks!

  2. Is there much difference in the Collagen Powder mentioned in this post and the Vital Proteins Collagen Powder that you have referred to before?
