Vegan Protein Hot Chocolate ☕

This is the healthiest twist you can probably find on the classic hot chocolate because it contains almost 20 grams of protein in a single serving!

Holiday Hot Chocolate

I found a small packet of Vega Protein Powder at Whole Foods to use for this recipe. Not all protein powders are created equal but Vega is a trusted vegan protein source with no fillers or additives. Plus the chocolate flavor is really yummy and not super chalky.

The protein powder makes this hot chocolate extra creamy and extra good for you!

I used a monkfruit sweetener for this recipe as well which is an all-natural, calorie free sugar alternative. It is the cleanest sweetener on the market and does not contribute to glucose spikes. It is also a safe alternative for diabetics because it doesn't change your blood sugar levels.

  1. In a medium saucepan, add plant milk of choice and whisk your chocolate protein powder, cacao powder, and monkfruit (you can swap for maple or date syrup). Whisk until combined.

  2. 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 may be thicker. If it gets too thick for you just add more plant milk or water. Taste and adjust sweetness.

  3. Pour the hot chocolate mixture into a mug and top with some frothed plant milk and a pinch of cinnamon. Optional: garnish with a cinnamon stick and some vegan marshmallows.
