For years I’ve utilized the protein hot chocolate you can buy online like this…(click blue text for link).
I’ve always LOVED the Creamy Hot Cocoa and I’ve used it for an afternoon pick-me-up or a late night sweet treat in the cooler months.
A protein hot chocolate is typically suitable on the pre and post-surgical diets for bariatric patients but always be sure to double check with your personal program.
Sometimes, however, you don’t happen to have that envelope of Creamy Hot Cocoa with 15 grams of protein!
This is the variation I’ve played with through the years when I didn’t the yummy packaged kind. I still love the packaged kind because 1) convenience! and 2) they come in different flavors!
Note: I used Quest Chocolate Protein powder for my hot cocoa and it was creamy and delicious. It did, however, need to be stirred up frequently while drinking to keep it smooth as it tends to clump up if it’s been sitting.
ANOTHER Note: This Creamy Hot Cocoa recipe is for a low-calorie hot chocolate if you need to satisfy your sweet tooth but don’t need any additional protein.
