Trim Healthy Mama (THM) Mocha-Coffee

thm-moca-coffeeI like to make myself a coffee in the morning that also works as my breakfast.  It’s a mocha coffee drink!

Here is the recipe:

First I brew a cup of coffee, then in a coffee mug I put two scoops of THM Integral
Collagen (a non-dairy protein) I use the same scoop from the THM scoop to use one to two scoops of my Hot Cocoa Mix (recipe here) and Swerve or THM Super Sweet Blend to taste.  Then I put it in the microwave for one minute.

I take it out of the microwave and blend it well.  Once it’s cooled I put it in one of those Blender Ball Cups to put it in.   I add some water and Unsweetened Almond Breeze milk to taste.   Then I make sure the cap is tightly closed and shake it up.  You can either drink it this way or I’ll put mine in the fridge overnight so it’s ready in the morning.  If you prefer it hot, I would put it in a mug and re-heat it.

I get my caffeine fix in the morning, my collagen protein and a bit of a chocolate fix in the morning!

Why use collagen protein?  Here are some useful articles on why.

My migraines have progressively grown in frequency and within the last 6 months, I was diagnosed with a chronic migraine. Last month I only had 6 pain-free days. In my pain-free time, I write two blogs, one to educate everyday computer users with Tech Tips, http://techtipthursday.wordpress.com, My other blog is dedicated to helping migraine sufferers, https://mommyhasamigraine.com I also enjoy, walking, yoga, writing, reading and spending time with my family. I'm currently writing and illustrating a children's book for parents with migraines to help their children understand the problem and how they can help!
