Protein Rich Hot Chocolate

What happened to the sunshine? What happened to the short wearing t-shirt loving heat? It seems to me that this might end up being one of the most unpredictable summers in a very long time so this little recipe can give you a bit of a boost on those slightly duller days.  It is a protein based drink that not only should give you a nice kick start to the day but add a little bit of cosy warmth to the greyest of mornings.


Ingredients – Makes enough for 2

Protein Rich Hot Chocolate

8 tbsp of pea protein

2 tbsp of  agave, xylitol or honey

1.5 tbsp of cocoa

1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon

pinch of sea salt

350 ml of hemp milk

splash of water if required to thin



Place all the dry ingredients in a saucepan and mix together.  Slowly add the hemp milk and mix until you form a paste.  Add more hemp milk a little at a time until you have a nice smooth liquid.  Heat gently until just begining to bubble then give it a whiz with an electric hand blender.  This adds a little air into the liquid giving a lovely frothy texture and also eliminating any little lumps that may have formed.

Serve straight away, relax and enjoy!
