I love hot chocolate. There are the rich decadent cups that fill you up in one sip, and there are this kind. Its the light and airy, give me more, I’m not done yet kind. And, this one’s got a secret. No one has to know. They just have to know its good. You see, this has got protein powder in it. Now, I’m not sure if the heat denatures the protein, but at least the amino acids will still be there for your tummy some love. (Can you tell what I’ve been doing in school lately?) Did I mention this is a light hot chocolate? Like really really light? Thats because of the supersecret protein powder.
Just make sure the protein powder is one that dissolves easily in liquid. The kind I used was a velvety vanilla whey, but I’m sure it would work with other kinds that dissolve. If it does not dissolve, you’ll have grainy hot chocolate (yuck.).
Anyways, here’s my little recipe for a light and lovely hot chocolate.
Hot Chocolate with a Secret
An original recipe by Lauren of Celiac Teen.
3 tablespoons vanilla whey powder
1 1/2 tsp cocoa
1 tbsp sugar
1. In your favourite mug, mix all of the dry ingredients.
2. Add some milk, and stir until there are no clumps.
3. Add boiling water and stir.
See? The hardest part is boiling the water. Simple and delicious!
Have a fantastic (and warm) week! I’ll be absent a little as I’m in the midst of unit finals, major projects and then the big final exams. (On Monday I have a major test in every class except one. That non-test one has our biggest project of the year due. That about explains it ;D).
