Hi there! It is so cold outside, I changed gears.
Want a quick, delicious, easy cocoa mix? This one is less than 5 carbs per mug, and I love how mild and creamy it is.
Tip: Heat almond milk instead of water for an even creamier cocoa.
You can even take this portable potable with you, or give it, powdered, as gifts to friends with cute cocoa mugs!
Try Jay Robb’s Egg White Vanilla Protein Powder in lieu of the Designer Whey Vanilla Protein Powder if you’re allergic to dairy. (I typically combine the two powders for one that’s half of the price of the Jay Robb, tastes amazing, and lasts twice as long.)
Tip: Add a titch of espresso powder for something truly eye-opening.
This hot drink is a positively delicious way to fill your stomach with healthy proteins and that chocolatey deliciousness you crave on a chilly afternoon.
For the confectionery, powder your favorite sweetener or make mine instead (recipe)!
Sugar-Free Hot Cocoa Mix
2 cups powdered sugar substitute (I use my favorite home-made mix)
1 cup unsweetened, powdered cocoa
2 1/2 cups vanilla protein powder
Process all ingredients together in a mixer/blender. Per 12 ounce mug, add 3 Tbsp of the mix. Store mix a bag in the cupboard.
Makes 4 cups of powder, or roughly 21 (3 Tbsp) servings of cocoa.
