The weather outside is frightful, but this hot chocolate is soooo delightful.
Winter is in full swing, and you’re probably starting to feel the affects of the cold weather. Freezing fingers and toes, runny nose, maybe even some frozen hair?
While meals like soups and stews can be great, nothing warms me up quite like a cup of hot chocolate! With a few substitutions, this traditionally sugar-heavy beverage can easily fit into your fit lifestyle.
Time: 10-15 minutes
When to eat it: after sledding, after going outside, dessert, breakfast (I won’t tell anyone)
Perks: No refined sugar, gluten-free, can be vegan, prevents you from getting hypothermia
Sh*t You Need:
A mug, saucepan, spoon
2 cups of almond milk (or milk of choice)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
A pinch of salt
6 Tbsp chocolate protein powder
2 Tbsp cacao powder
1-2 Tbsp maple syrup (or to taste)
1. Combine all ingredients and stir until smooth. Blending them will make it a lot easier, but if you don't have a blender stir with a fork in a saucepan. 2. Heat ingredients over low heat until simmering. Pour into 2 mugs, and top with whipped cream, coconut cream, or drink as is!
