Recipe Corner: PB Hot Chocolate

Recipe by Cornelia Sabrina,  @Cornelia_Sabrina on IG

With winter fast approaching and the colder temperatures rolling in, I find myself craving hot drinks way more often. And what better way to fill the craving than with a nutritious protein packed hot chocolate? I wanted to make sure it is super thick and creamy, which is why I added the peanut butter. It is some of the healthiest fat you can consume and will give you the richness you would usually get from heavy whipping cream without sacrificing the healthy macros. Perfect for an afternoon snack! Enjoy!

 

PB Hot Chocolate

Recipe makes 1 serving.

Time: 5 minutes

 

Ingredients:

2 cups plant milk, unsweetened

1 scoop TRU PB Chocolate Protein 

1/2 tbsp Peanut-butter, natural

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 tsp Cocoa Powder, unsweetened

15 Chocolate Chips, Semi Sweet

2 tbsp Coconut Whipped Topping 

 

----------------------------------------------------------------

1) Add plant milk, cocoa powder and protein powder into a shaker bottle and shake until well combined. Transfer into a sauce pan.

 

2) Bring to a boil and add peanut butter, chocolate chips and vanilla extract. Boil for a minute or two. 

 

3) Transfer to a mug and top with Coconut Whipped Topping

_______________________________________________

 

Notes: 

* If you prefer a sweeter hot chocolate, feel free to add some liquid vanilla stevia or honey. Keep in mind honey will alter the macros of the drink.

* You can use any unsweetened plant milk. Oat milk and cashew milk work really good as they naturally are thick and have a sweeter after taste.
