Chocolate Egg Cream

When I think of a Chocolate Egg Cream, it brings back happy memories. I worked at coffee shops and restaurants since I was 15 years old. I loved working at the local coffee shop and I would make Chocolate Egg Creams for people all the time! I often dream about opening a special keto restaurant. If I did, I would serve “healthified” Chocolate Egg Creams!
Chocolate Egg Creams are a delicious drink that is often served at diners. If you have ever had a chocolate egg cream, most likely the chocolate syrup was drizzled down the spoon. But this isn’t done because it makes it taste great; it is only for looks. And actually, drizzling the chocolate down the spoon kills carbonation because the more you stir, the more you dissipate the carbonation, resulting in a flat drink. To make a tasty and fizzy chocolate egg cream, combine the chocolate and milk in the bottom of the glass and stir that first. Add the carbonated water last and you will end up with the best chocolate egg cream ever!

I added Further Foods Chocolate Collagen to this for an added health benefit not only for myself but for my children!There have been many studies showing a wide range of benefits from collagen. You get a lot of glycine from collagen. THIS STUDY showed that the glycine derived from collagen is essential to maintain the normal structure and strength of connective tissue, such as bones, skin, cartilage, and blood vessels. Many other studies have shown benefits ranging form immune health, digestive health, bone strength and much more. It also greatly benefits the skin and reduced wrinkles and aging. Smoking reduces collagen synthesis and that is why smokers have more wrinkles.

Another important benefit of collagen is that it is the second most ferment-able substrate behind FOS (fructooligosaccharides). This study showed that collagen is great for feeding our gut flora, much better than almost any plant fiber (collagen is 7.96 where plant fiber is 1.53). So the push for feeding the gut flora with lots of plant fiber is really not needed. Just add some collagen.


Collagen is derived from the connective tissues, bones and skin of animals (typically beef). This is one of the reasons bone broth is great for health, it contains collagen. The collagen peptide products in Further Foods, isolate the collagen and give you a much more concentrated dose. Collagen Peptides are also very convenient as they dissolve easily into water or other foods and have no taste or smell. That is why we love the Further Foods Collagen (use coupon code: MARIAMINDBODY  for 25% off). It is grass-fed, pasture raised, NON-GMO, kosher and has only 1 ingredient. This makes it really easy to add to any recipe.


  1. Can help with skin elasticity and aging. This means when losing a lot of weight it can help the skin shrink better, reduce wrinkles and cellulite
  2. It can help strengthen hair and reduce hair loss
  3. Improves joint health
  4. Builds bone strength
  5. Contains 18 amino acids that help muscle and ligament repair and recovery
  6. Contains glycine that helps with immune system health and helps with digestion


In this Chocolate Egg Cream recipe, I used Further Foods NEW Chocolate Collagen with Reishi Mushroom extract! The reason I love this new Further Food product is because it is the ONLY collagen blends on the market made with 4 only real food ingredients and no  gums! It is just collagen peptides, mushrooms (reishi in the chocolate and tremella in the vanilla), cocoa powder/vanilla bean natural flavoring powder, and monkfruit.

Reishi mushroom is a natural mood & immunity booster. And Tremella mushroom is the ultimate beauty mushroom. It’s even more effective than hyaluronic acid at locking in moisture, reversing wrinkles, and brightening complexion!

    Thank you for another delicious recipe! I’m seeing more Real Good products and wonder if you endorse these as well (stuffed chicken, chicken poppers etc)?? I put a lot of faith in your recommendations!

  • Ronnie Roll says:

    I have fallen in love with Further Foods chocolate collagen! I’ve been looking for an easy replacement for my winter hot chocolate fix that also offers great health benefits, and this is it! The mushroom undertone gives it a richer, earthy flavor that I adore. Always looking for new recipes and ways to get healthier and maintain my new keto body!

  • Sandra Lang says:

    Thank you, Maria!
    Could you please comment on the erythritol in monk fruit products. Is it possibly created from corn? I don’t feel well when eating erythritol and must be careful due to a nasty corn allergy.
    Many thanks for changing the lives of so many!

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      It is possible it is from corn, but the fermentation process means it is nothing like eating corn as the molecular composition is changed (much like pollen turning into honey).

  • sue in CA says:

    Thank you Maria for the code to get 25% off the collagen! I was running out of the gelatin and got 2, and also 2 of the peptides which I ran out of last week. Great savings!

  • ks says:

    What time of day – or how close to taking probiotics – do you feel is best to take collagen in order to get the benefits of feeding gut flora? Thank you so much for your time and all you do.

    Chocolate is high in oxalates. What’s your opinion on that? Replacing the dark chocolate with homemade white chocolate would be an Option.
