    Thumbs up Healthy hot cocoa


    I've been drinking this every night for the past month. Not only is it a great source of antioxidants, but also has a great deal of fiber (when prepared like below)

    1 Large mug of skim milk (14oz or so)
    3 Packets of Splenda w/ Fiber
    2 Tablespoon Hershey's Special Dark Unsweetened Cocoa

    Microwave milk 2 1/2 minutes. Add Splenda & Cocoa. Stir for a minute or so to make sure its all dissolved. Throw back in microwave for another 30 seconds to get it nice and hot.

    Approx macros -

    17g Protein
    25g Carb (7g FIBER!)
    1g Fat

    This also goes great with this recipe - Protein Chocolate Brownie

    Enjoy

    I've also made it with Stevia- it turns out great that way as well.

    Now that it is getting insanely cold out (at least around me), this is a nice drink to warm you up!

    Why not use chocolate protein powder for the chocolate part of the hot CHOCOLATE, and just regular water to cut out the sugar that you get from milk?

    Because this isn't a protein shake replacement, and because choc. protein powders do not contain the fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients that dark chocolate provide. Plus, dark chocolate hot cocoa just tastes damn good (in milk). Milk > water ALWAYS when talking about mixing in choc. powders.

    Again, the main reason for this recipe is the fiber and the antioxidants from the dark cocoa.

    Bumping for those who need a sweet chocolate fix on their cut (like me).

    This really helps with my cravings without screwing much with my daily macros.

    If possbile get UNREFINED cocoa powder. Most have been treated with alkali which removes some of the health benefits. Check your local health/bulk foods store.

    17g Protein + 25g Carb + 1g Fat = 177 calories.

    I've done this and also to get macros where I wanted em added coconut oil which is nice and liquid at hot coco temps. adds some nice flavor too, and is some good saturated fat to take prebed. so all in all a win-win scenario. Also you can use the hood calorie countdown skim milk and loose 8~10g or so of the carbs
