Hot chocolate is always a comfort go-to, especially during the holiday season. But most ready to go hot chocolate drinks can contain a large amount of processed sugars. These can definitely de-rail your day macro-wise. This recipe is a macro friendly protein hot chocolate that uses our Phyto Perfect protein powder that's packed with superfoods to give you that extra delicious health boost.
If you're like us, you like to switch up your proteins between our vegan Phyto Perfect Protein + Superfoods, our Precision ISO protein and our Precision Blend time released protein. These are all different from each other and can vary in taste. For example, if you're using our vegan Phyto Perfect protein like the one we use in this recipe, is made with a mix of premium plant proteins. This can absorb moisture more and create a thicker texture. The taste may seem a little different than if you're using our whey protein isolate instead.
