Melrose MCT ‘guilt free’ hot chocolate

by Melrose resident nutritionist, Steph Lowe

prep time 3 minutes | cooking time 5 minutes | serves 1

Ingredients

1 heaped teaspoon raw cacao powder

80ml water, boiling

1 tablespoon Melrose MCT Oil (Original, Pro Plus, Pro Rapid)

1 tablespoon Melrose Organic Grass-fed Ghee

Method

  • 1. Place cacao powder, boiling water, MCT oil and ghee and boiling water into a small blender, blend on high speed for about 10 seconds until coffee is creamy and smooth. Remove from blender and serve immediately.

  • 2. TIPS: Make sure your blender is suitable for hot liquids. If not, then blend all ingredients above with a small amount of warm water to emulsify, then top up with boiling water to serve

  • 3. If you are new to using MCT oil, only add 1 teaspoon into your MCT Hot Chocolate. If you have been using MCT oil for some time, you can increase your intake to 1 tablespoon per day, but gradually increasing a teaspoon at a time over a period of a few weeks.
