Recipe of the Week 9/27: Protein Hot Chocolate

Yields 1 Serving 


1/4 cup Protein Powder 

1 Tbsp Monkfruit, Stevia or sweetener of choice 

1 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa powder 

1 cup Almond Milk or milk of choice 


In a medium saucepan, add milk of choice and whisk in your favorite chocolate protein powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, and sweetener of choice. Whisk vigorously until combined. 

Heat over medium-low heat, frequently whisking, until warm (but not boiling) and creamy. Depending on the brand of protein powder you used, the texture can be thicker. If too thick to your liking, whisk in an extra 1/4 cup of milk. If too thin, whisk in extra protein powder. Taste and adjust sweetness before serving. 

Serve immediately, plain or with a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream/ sugar free chocolate syrup on top for a touch of decadence.
