Preparation time: 5 minutes Serves: 1
- 200ml milk of your choice (e.g., almond milk, oat milk)
- 1 tablespoon Juspy chocolate collagen protein powder
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Grated dark chocolate, for a sprinkle of indulgence
- Take a small saucepan and pour in the milk of your choice. Gently heat it over medium-low heat until it starts to emit a soft steam. We’re looking for that perfect comforting warmth, so don’t let it come to a rolling boil.
- Time to bring in the star ingredient: Juspy chocolate collagen protein powder. Add a generous tablespoon into the base of a mug.
- Add an inch or two of hot water (off boil).
- Grab a trusty whisk (or fork) and mix it into a smooth paste, making sure those powders dissolve into the milk like a harmonious blend.
- If you’re craving more sweetness, invite honey or maple syrup to join the party. Add a teaspoon (or more if you prefer), giving it a good stir to combine with the other flavors.
- For an extra kick of flavor, consider adding a splash of vanilla extract. It’ll give your drink a touch of sophistication and warmth. And to add a bit of spice, a pinch of cinnamon will do just the trick, bringing a cozy and fragrant note to the table.
- Keep the gentle heat going for a couple more minutes, stirring occasionally, until your elixir reaches the perfect drinking temperature. We want it warm and comforting, not scorching hot.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat and pour your dreamy warm milk chocolate drink into a mug. Take a moment to appreciate the wonderful aromas swirling around you.
- Now, let’s add a sprinkle of pure indulgence. Grab some grated dark chocolate and let it rain down over the surface of your drink. Watch as it slowly melts, creating a luxurious layer of richness.
- Give everything a gentle stir, letting the melted chocolate infuse every sip with its exquisite flavor. Take a moment to close your eyes and savor the deliciousness.
- Now, let’s talk about the benefits of our secret ingredients: ashwagandha and chicory root, already present in Juspy. Ashwagandha, known for its calming properties, can help relax your mind, preparing you for a restful night’s sleep. Chicory root, packed with fiber, aids digestion and promotes overall well-being. So, as you enjoy each sip, embrace the nurturing effects they provide, guiding you towards a peaceful slumber.
- Find yourself a cozy spot, whether it’s your favorite armchair or a snug corner, and enjoy this sleep-inducing warm milk chocolate drink as part of your bedtime routine. Let it be a comforting companion, helping you unwind and drift off into dreamland.
With the delightful flavours of Juspy, the touch of warmth from cinnamon, and the indulgence of grated dark chocolate, this warm milk chocolate drink is a perfect blend of relaxation and decadence.
