Bulletproof Cacao for hangry kids

bulletproof cacao for kids -

Do your kids get hangry? 

Mine TOTALLY do. 

Usually after school but for my 7 yo it's also first thing in the morning (because he's eaten nothing for dinner the night before but that's a story for another day!).

Over Winter I came up with something that has transformed our mornings. It's honestly amazing the difference it makes getting this into his tummy first thing.
It's basically a kids version of a bulletproof coffee so it's really warming and filling.

Collagen and gelatin are amazing sources of protein and other nutrients for kids - and just FYI Gelatin is actually just cooked collagen - plus they're also great for gut health which is something we're really working at the moment.

Collagen doesn't set like gelatin does and it's completely flavourless so it's perfect to hide in things like hot chocolate and smoothies!

Make sure you choose a high quality, grass-fed variety. I like Great Lakes and Perfect Supplements Australia, but there are a number of other good ones. 

Charlie's Special Hot Chocolate 
aka Bulletproof Cacao

1 1/2 cups milk
1 ts coconut oil
1 ts butter
1 ts honey
1 tbs collagen powder
1 ts raw cacao

Place all ingredients into the Thermomix and heat for 3 minutes / 50 degrees / SP2 then blitz at SP 6 for a few seconds at the end to make sure it's all combined. You can also just warm it up on the stove and use a blender to mix afterwards.

Can't seem to break the habit of him drinking this with a straw but at least he's drinking it! 

Would your kids drink something like this?

I'll be sharing my grown-ups version flavoured with essential oils soon!
