Add the cacao powder, collagen power, monkfruit sweetener and stevia to a 16 ounce mug.
Pour in the espresso and vanilla extract, stir to combine.
Add some of the steamed milk and the ghee to the mug. Stir until all of the powder is dissolved.
Add the remaining milk and foam, stir to combine and serve.
Top with whipped cream and shaved unsweetened chocolate if desired.
Technically this Bulletproof Collagen Protein Powder is not a complete protein, it is missing tryptophan. I use it more for the collagen than the protein, I’m hoping to give my skin a boost! Use your favorite brand.
I use my favorite Golden Lakanto Monkfruit/Erythritol sweetener. Use code YUMMYHEALTHYKETO15% for 15% off Lakanto Products
Adding Stevia Powder adds another layer of sweetness without adding any carbs.
I used Ghee because I am severely allergic to coconut! Feel free to substitute coconut oil, MCT oil or coconut cream if you prefer.
Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk does not contain carageenan or guar gum. Feel free to substitute homemade almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk.
If you do not have an espresso machine at home, you can substitute double-strength brewed coffee.
Most espresso machines sold for home use do not have enough power to steam milk. You can “froth” heated milk with a hand blender or pour your mocha into a high speed blender to mix it up.
