Delicious Protein Hot Cocoa Recipe

Delicious Protein Hot Cocoa Recipe

One of my favorite snacks on cold days is to drink a delicious cup of whey protein hot chocolate, yep, your read it correctly--whey protein! I'm all about enjoying delicious treats that have health benefits to keep my physique lean and at my ideal body weight—drinking whey protein hot chocolate does just that!

Whey protein is a staple in my diet; many people underestimate the importance of protein. Protein has a long list of health benefits, of which of which are: aids in fat loss and preserves muscle, increases muscle growth, increases metabolism, reduces hunger, reduces stress, and improves the immune system.

Next time you crave a delicious cup of hot cocoa, ditch the high-calorie sugar recipes and instant hot chocolate packets and make my yummy recipe instead. You can always add a scoop of whey protein powder to your favorite recipe as well.  Drinking protein-packed hot cocoa will give you a mega health boost to keep your body going strong. Below is my favorite recipe I created that keeps me happy, warm and fit!

Whey Protein Cocoa Directions:
  • Heat one cup of coconut milk in a large microwave-safe mug for 90 seconds (adjust according to your microwave) or in a pot on the stove (healthier option) on medium heat.
  • If heating coconut milk on the stove, add whey protein powder, cocoa, cinnamon and stevia packet, whisking until heated, (do not boil—heat enough that it will be hot to touch.)
  • If heating in a microwave, add ingredients after you heat the coconut milk and mix thoroughly until well incorporated.
  • Add liquid stevia after removing from heat.
  • Top with protein whipped cream and sprinkle with cocoa and cinnamon if desired.

Whipped Cream Directions:
  • Whisk all ingredients in a small bowl until at the desired consistency.

It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
