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
Place the beet puree, almond milk, protein, cocao powder, salt and stevia into a blend and blend until smooth.
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!
*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.
