Healthy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate

Healthy Red Velvet Hot Chocolate. A delicious, low carb, high protein treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 32g chocolate protein powder PEScience 30% OFF code PBCHOCO
  • 1/4 c roasted beet puree
  • 1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened cocao powder
  • stevia to taste
  • pinch sea salt
  • cocao nibs for sprinkles
  • marshmallows if desired

Instructions

  1. Place the beet puree, almond milk, protein, cocao powder, salt and stevia into a blend and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into a small pot over low-medium heat. Remove from heat just before the hot chocolate begins to boil. Pour into a serving glass and top with cocao nibs and marshmallows if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

*If you are using a vegan protein, you will want to add more stevia as vegan powders tend to be less sweet. **For beet puree: Wash beats and roast them for 1 hour at 400F. Let cool and remove skins. Place in a food processor or blender until pureed.
