Ever miss your favorite childhood foods like chocolate milk with everything? We do! @emmamariehyslop made a vegan and dairy-free chocolate cashew mylk using Cacao Calm Beauty and we’re over the moon about it. Think of it as an adult superfood chocolate milk. We love it cold or hot, on its own, or with easy treats.
Pro tip: try foaming and heating the chocolate cashew mylk into a hot cacao. It’s also amazing over a simple homemade chocolate rice puff cereal, or paired with sweet and salty treats like our chocolate beauty popcorn.
Preparation tips! You don’t need a cheese cloth to make this mylk, though one is recommended if you want a super smooth texture. We recommend storing the mylk in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
You can totally sub out the maple syrup for dates instead if you want a different kind of sweetener or leave the sweetener out altogether! The Cacao Calm has a touch of lucuma and monk fruit it in it and also a bit of organic Ceylon cinnamon which gives the whole mixture a really wonderful flavor.
What makes this chocolate cashew mylk beauty-boosting are the collagen-boosting botanicals in each Copina Co. plant-based collagen blend that are inside. These ingredients help to boost your hair, skin, nails and overall well-being.* We believe that you’re most beautiful when you treat yourself well <3

Tremella mushroom, or tremella fuciformis, is an amazing edible variety of mushroom that’s been historically used in Eastern medicine for centuries. It aids in boosting skin hydration and has been shown to help pull moisture into the skin and fight aging.*
Bamboo is one of the richest sources of silica out there! Silica is a naturally-occurring mineral found primarily in plants and water sources.

Cacao Powder is the purest and most nutrient-dense form of chocolate out there that has an amazing taste and fantastic benefits. Ever wonder why chocolate helps promote bliss? Cacao is a natural source of the “bliss chemicals” chemicals phenylethylamine (PEA) and anandamide that our bodies naturally create when we are feeling excited.*
Cacao also contains tons of antioxidants, particularly polyphenols, which have been linked to reducing inflammation and overall improved well-being.* What makes cacao powder different than cocoa? Cacao is higher in nutrients than regular cocoa because it is processed at a lower heat and does not experience as great a loss of nutrients.
