Clean Protein Hot Chocolate

There are times in my life that I have a nostalgic craving for Hot Chocolate. Unfortunately, traditional Hot Chocolate Mixes are crammed full of sugar, fat, artificial flavors, fillers, and preservatives. To indulge my craving, I came up with the recipe for a yummy hot chocolate recipe that can be enjoyed guilt free.

Clean Protein Hot Chocolate

1/2 C Almond Milk (can substitute Skim or Unsweetened Soy Milk)
1/2 C Water
1 tsp Vanilla
1 scoop Protein Powder (vanilla or chocolate works)
2 TB unsweetened, dark Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Organic Zero sweetener (can substitute any CE approved sweetener)

Mix Milk and Water together in a microwave safe dish and microwave until hot. Add the vanilla and set aside.

Mix Protein Powder, Cocoa Powder, and Organic Zero together in a Magic Bullet cup. Add Milk mixture. Blend in Magic Bullet until frothy. Pour into a mug and enjoy!

If you do not have a Magic Bullet, you can use your blender, a shaker cup, or a spoon.

Cooler 1 Substitutions:
  • Substitute Water for the Milk
  • Use Chocolate Protein Powder instead of Vanilla
  • Use less Cocoa Powder
  • Portion: 1 serving Protein Powder

this looks nice. what kind of cooler do you use? do you have ice packs to go inside it? do you eat your food cold then (such as spaghetti squash, bison) or heat it up?
