Orange Spiced Hot Cocoa Espresso for Two

Hi Friends,
Here's  something you can share with 
your sweetheart on Valentine's Day.

Orange Spiced Hot Cocoa Espresso

1 cup any type milk- I used almond milk
1 cup brewed coffee- I used espresso
2 TBSP. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 scoops Collagen powder- Optional- I get mine from Trader Joe's
2  TBSP. sweetener of your choice- honey or maple- I used Agave syrup
fresh peel from 1/2 an orange
1/4 tsp. whole cloves
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Garnish: Whipped cream and cinnamon stick

Adding the Collagen is optional....but really I would love to encourage you to start adding

this to your diet.  Adding 2 scoops gives you another 11 grams of protein.

I put it in my coffee everyday. You can't taste it.

There are vegan and vegetarian powders available also.

It's great for skin, hair, joints and connective tissue.


Add all ingredients except orange peel, to a small sauce pan.
Use a small whisk to combine.
Warm on medium heat, while whisking.
Add orange peel, when thoroughly heated, 
strain through a sieve to remove spices and peel.

Garnish with whipped cream and cinnamon stick, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Serves Two!

Enjoy and Happy Valentine's Day.
