Hot Chocolate or Candy Cane Hot Chocolate!!

Just back from the gym from my first leg workout post competition... first one in about 3 weeks!  Would love to say I killed it, but no such luck... it killed me!  Hamstrings decided they wanted no part of it and seized up solid.  But on the way home, snow was falling, sun was shining and it put me right into the Christmas spirit, so much so I might even brave the malls today! =/  But it also put me in the mood for one of my favourite protein beverages... Hot Chocolate!! :)  Here is how I make it:

First, put the kettle on. ;) While the water is boiling mix up about 1/4 cup of milk or cold water with a scoop of protein.  Using a shaker cup works fine for this, but if you give it a good zazz in the magic bullet it makes your hot chocolate nice and frothy!   To make candy cane hot chocolate vs. regular hot chocolate, add 2-3 drops of peppermint flavouring.  Careful!! Peppermint flavouring is VERY strong, a little goes a long way!  Put this mixture into your mug and once your water is boiled, top up the cup with hot water, stir, and enjoy!  If feeling extra indulgent (once again, like I did) top off with some fat free whipped cream.

**TIP**  NEVER put hot water into your shaker and think you can get a good hot protein beverage by shaking it up the same as a cold shake.  Instead what you get is a big mess all over your kitchen counter, walls, and self, due to an exploding beverage.  I learned this the hard way and I am passing this advice on to you!!


Enjoy your hot chocolate and your weekend!  Happy Friday! :)

    When I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, when
    opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful website!
