Foodie Friday- Casein Hot Chocolate

Casein Hot Chocolate

This will be the last non-Whole30 compliant Foodie Friday until May 26.  So, I thought I would share my most delicious protein loaded dessert!  For those trying to up their protein numbers, this is a great way to sneak a whole lot of protein in at the end of the day and it tastes sinfully delicious.

For this recipe, casein protein powder works much better than whey or other types of proteins.  It has a thicker consistency and makes you feel fuller longer.  

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 scoops Casein Protein Powder (chocolate flavor)

  • 1 T peanut butter (can change amount based on needed fat intake)

  • 1 cup milk (can use water, milk substitute or 1/2 milk 1/2 water depending upon your available macros)

  • 1/2 T cocoa powder

  • 1/2 T cinnamon 

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Place in microwave safe mug.
  4. Microwave 1min
  5. Stir.  Microwave additional 30s if needed.
