Hot Macao

This makes a great substitute for regular hot chocolate and malt drinks as it’s free from preservatives, artificial sugars and flavourings. I enjoy this creamy drink before bedtime, particularly when using collagen protein as it aids tissue repair and muscle growth, both of which occur during sleep.
