What would winter be without some comforting hot cocoa? Why not kick the sugar and make your own healthy version..with a little punch of protein added also. This recipe uses dairy free milk, cocoa powder, and a bit of chocolate whey protein to make a decadent warming treat.
- 1 cup unsweetened cashew milk
- 2 tsp chocolate protein powder
- 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- stevia to taste
- dash of salt (to bring out chocolate flavor)
Heat milk in a saucepan over medium heat until hot.
Add the protein powder, cocoa powder, and stevia and whisk well until well combined. Add dash of salt.
**If you microwave, combine all ingredients in a mug and microwave for 2 minutes. Use a handheld milk frother or whisk vigorously until no clumps.
Optional: add in a drop of peppermint extract for a peppermint hot chocolate! (literally just a drop, it is STRONG!)
