Tired of bulletproof coffee? Why not try this thick, smooth and silky hot chocolate? Perfect for a cold day or night. It’s another easy way to meet your fat quota for the day. This bulletproof hot chocolate is fully loaded and could be a meal in itself.
1/2 scoop protein powder (chocolate or vanilla flavor)
1 tbs. cocoa powder
Chilli powder (optional)
Heat coconut milk in a saucepan till hot but not boiling. If you prefer the easy way out, you can microwave it on HIGH for about 1 minute or less. You don't want it to boil over.
Pour the heated coconut milk into the blender or smoothie maker, followed by coconut oil, butter and protein powder.
Blend for 15-20 secs. Pour into a mug and you will have a thick froth on top of the drink like caffe latte.
Sprinkle a tiny bit of chill on top if you like.
I normally don't put protein powder in bulletproof coffee nor any sweetener because I don't take any sugar in my coffee. But for hot chocolate, it tastes better with a little bit of sweet in it. I first used a few drop of liquid stevia but I found that if I added protein powder, the sweetener in it is sweet enough to give the hot chocolate the necessary sweetness, plus it packs extra protein.
