Healthy Beetroot Red Velvet Hot Cocoa

I am obsessed with this Healthy Red Velvet Beetroot Hot Cocoa!  It's warming, creamy, rich and flavorful. Gluten-free, paleo, nut-free and still delish! The perfect warm snack or dessert.

You can always swap out water for plant-based milk of your choice
If you don’t want to use the collagen, the definitely use plant-based milk of choice to add the creamy factor. // Using a whisk or hand mixer helps remove chunks and creates a smooth and lovely consistency //
