Peppermint Hot Chocolate with Protein Boost

Print

It’s impossible not to crave a fresh, warm cup of hot chocolate when it’s cold and snowy outside. But imagine if you add a little touch of winter holidays to it? It becomes irresistible. This homemade Peppermint Hot Chocolate with Protein Boost will make you feel cozy and right at home, thanks to its creamy coconut milk, vanilla and flavorful peppermint. While light and low in added sugar, this hot chocolate has a minty and refreshing taste, boosting your energy and immune system. Cocoa powder is known for its antioxidant properties, helping wash out toxins from your body. The heavy protein content comes from collagen, which keeps your bones and muscles strong and flexible, thus keeping you feeling young. This deliciously hot drink will remind you of your childhood and keep you pumped for the holidays!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This dairy free drink is full of antioxidants from the cocoa powder and low in added sugar. For those who are vegan, simply sub out the honey for coconut nectar. I love the addition of vanilla and peppermint extract to add sweetness and depth without unnecessary calories or sugar!
