  • Microwave-safe mug

  • 1 scoop of PlantYourDay Vegan Protein Powder, available at our spa

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 2 tsp cocoa powder

Protein Packed Peppermint Hot Chocolate

This hot chocolate is so indulgent-tasting and delicious you wouldn’t know it’s dairy-free unless you’re the one making it!



Ingredients

  • 1 cup light coconut milk (from the can)

  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 scoop of PlantYourDay Vegan Protein Powder, available at our spa

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • Pinch of sea salt

Directions

  • Add all ingredients to a small pot and place over medium low heat. Whisk vigorously to combine and to get rid of any lumps of cocoa. Do not let the hot chocolate boil. Simply warm in the pot until steamy, about 3-5 minutes.

  • Once hot, remove from heat and pour into two mugs. Top with dairy-free whipped cream or vegan marshmallows, and/or a dusting of unsweetened cocoa powder.
