The recipe includes a couple of scoops of Keto Collagen, a product by Perfect Keto. If you do not have Keto Collagen, no worries. The recipe gives instructions on how to make it without. But, if you’ve wanted to try Keto Collagen, you can use the coupon code KETOCOLLAGEN20 for 20% off Keto Collagen here.

If you’re a bit confused over Keto Collagen, I know I was, here’s an image I created that’ll hopefully clear the air.

Keto Collagen comes in 2 flavors = Chocolate and Unflavored
The Unflavored Keto Collagen is just MCT Oil Powder + Grass-fed Collagen

Clear as coconut oil?

Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2¼ cup
Hot chocolate made keto with Keto Collagen, a mixture of collagen peptides and MCT oil powder. It’s high-fat, low-carb and deliciously chocolatey.
  1. Place all ingredients in the jug of your blender and blend for 10 seconds, or until incorporated.
  2. Divide between two mugs, sprinkle with cinnamon if you’d like, and enjoy!
The Sweetness: There are two ways this recipe can be prepared and it depends on how chocolatey you want your hot chocolate, and how sensitive you are to stevia. Chocolate Keto Collagen is sweetened with stevia and gets overly sweet for most people which is why I added 1 scoop of the unflavored and 1 scoop of the chocolate flavored with a touch of monk fruit. If you want your hot chocolate really chocolatey AND you’re not sensitive to stevia, you can replace the Unflavored Keto Collagen and monk fruit sweetener with an additional 1 scoop of Chocolate Keto Collagen.
Make Without Keto Collagen: replace the 2 scoops of Keto Collagen with 2 tablespoons of cacao powder and increase the monk fruit from 2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon.
Make without Monk Fruit: I chose monk fruit for this recipe, but you could use any keto-friendly sweetener you'd like.

How to Start Keto


  1. Hey Leanne

    Excited to try this recipe, but I happen to have Great Lakes collagen. Can you please clarify how much is in a “scoop”? Just want to be able to properly tweak the recipe. Thanks!

    • You bet! 1 scoop of Keto Collagen contains 10g of collagen protein. Hope you enjoy the recipe!

  2. Hi Leanne :-)

    Is this recipe for 1 or 2 servings. The instructions say to split into two mugs but the nutritional information says it is one serving. It is very tasty.



    • Whoops! The nutrition info is calculated for the entire 2 1/4 cups. If you just drink half, divide the nutrition info in half to match :)

  3. I am following the Pumped keto meal plan. I am a bit fogy on a few areas. First, there is a lot of mention of fat bombs, however, they aren’t on the plan, so Im not sure where I am supposed to fit them in?
    Second, the meals consist of a chicken breast, or a meatloaf, but nothing else with with it. However, the recipe page says “to make it complete meal add xyz”, am I supposed to make it a complete meal?
    Last, I am finding this to be a lot of prep, cooking etc. Are there prepared meals, snack etc that can be purchased to take some of the planning and prep work out of it?

    • Hey, Janette! With Pumped Keto, you’re eating a LOT more protein than any of the other plans in the book, so sometimes there are no sides to the meals (e.g. the meal consists of just meatloaf, or pork chops, etc). Of course, you are welcome to add low-carb veggies as a side, but keep in mind, your macros won’t match what’s outlined in the plans. I encourage you to listen to your body and do what makes you feel best, though!

      Since you’re keeping protein a lot higher than the other plans in the book, you’ll be consuming slightly less fat, which doesn’t leave much room for fat bombs. Most of the fat you’ll be eating is coming from fatty coffee/tea drinks, cooking oils/fats, and the fat from meat. Again, I encourage you to listen to your body and adjust your plan to include fat bombs if you’d like.

      I am not aware of a keto meal preparation service, but if you find one that you like, I would love to hear about it!

  4. I think the note on making the hot chocolate really chocolatey is reversed. Shouldn’t it say replace the unflavored with chocolate?

  5. Hi I was wondering why lite coconut milk? Only because I’ve tried to get rid of anything in our house that says light, so I’m not questioning the decision but trying to figure out what I should be doing. Thank you for all you do and the integrity of all of your dishes!

    • Lite coconut milk, meaning you don’t have to use full-fat from the can. You’re welcome to use full-fat and boost the fat content even more, though! :)

  6. Did you mean to say “If you want your hot chocolate really chocolatey AND you’re not sensitive to stevia, you can replace the Chocolate Keto Collagen and monk fruit sweetener with an additional 1 scoop of Unflavored Keto Collagen.” If that was done, then there wouldn’t be any chocolate. I am thinking you meant to replace the unflavored keto collagen with another scoop of chocolate keto collagen.

    • Yes, that’s what I meant. Sorry for that confusion, Vanita! It’s fixed now :)

  7. Hey Leanne,

    Fyi I may not be asking this in the appropriate place. I discovered your podcast about a week ago and I’ve been listening hardcore. I’m backtracking and in episode 43. I appreciate your positivity SO much. I have been trying to be keto for about a month and still haven’t hit ketosis. I know there’s something I’m not doing right I just don’t understand what my body is trying to say. You have mentioned exogenous ketones helping in many episodes. I’m poor and need to choose between getting your fat fueled plan or the ketones. I had previously purchased a plan I had found prior and I’m not finding it helpful. Any suggestions?

    • Hey, Paula! That’s a tough comparison! Fat Fueled is filled with a wealth of information– including tips on getting into ketosis, whereas, exogenous ketones are something you consume. If you’ve exhausted your efforts of getting into ketosis and have decided exogenous ketones are the only way to do it, go with the ketones. If you’re open to learning more, I would suggest getting Fat Fueled.

  8. Hallo,

    I was wondering how can i replace Perfect Keto Collagen, Unflavored?


    • Hey! The instructions are in the Notes of the recipe where it says “Make Without Keto Collagen.”

  9. Does the vital protein collagen break a fast? Loved this recipe by the way it is delicious

    • Fasting, for many, is about regulating insulin and 10g of protein (or less) shouldn’t increase insulin. However, if you’re fasting for other reasons, perhaps sticking to only water is best.

  10. Your amazing I love u I love u I love u !!
    You have helped so many people and shown us the right way to do keto and we love it your recipes are spot on also.
    Thank you sincerely jacquie

    • You’re so kind– thank you, Jacquie! I think YOU are amazing ;)
