The season of giving has landed upon us!
The joy of giving: gifts, and gains...holiday weight gains that is. YIKES!
With holiday parties and cookie trays around every corner...the struggle to stay disciplined is real!
Holiday indulgence and the saying, "just one more couldn't hurt..." will catch up to you quick and before you know it, the new year is here and your pants ain't quite fitting like they used to!
But what's the fun of the holidays if you can't indulge...just a little anyways?
Low and behold we've got a sweet tooth indulgence that will satisfy your cravings on a chilly winter night, while keeping your goals in mind and your gains (gym gains not pant size gains) on track.
...Protein Hot Chocolate!
We took this Christmas staple to the next level and gave it a protein twist so you'll feel guilt-free down to the last chocolaty drop!
Cashew milk gives this cup of hot chocolate all the creaminess you desire, but if you want even less calories opt out for water instead.
PROTEIN HOT CHOCOLATE INGREDIENTS:
- 1.5 Cup Unsweetened Cashew Milk
- 1 Scoop ATH Build
- 2 Tbsp. 100% Organic Cocoa Powder
- 1 tsp. Organic Vanilla Extract
Optional Toppings: Marshmallows, Cinnamon, Whipped Cream, Crushed Peppermint, Chocolate Drizzle.
PS- A little whiskey in your hot chocolate never hurt anyone either (we won't tell if you don't)
1. In a medium pot, heat cashew milk till a slight boil.
2. Add ATH Build, Cocoa Powder, and Vanilla Extract.
3. Whisk constantly until Build and Cocoa Powder have dissolved.
4. Simmer on low for 3-5 minutes.
5. Transfer piping hot chocolate to your favorite mug, add toppings, and ENJOY!
*Trying to squeeze in a last minute holiday shopping run and short on time?? Warm up your cashew milk for 2 minutes in the microwave. Transfer to your ATH shaker bottle along with the remaining ingredients, shake it all up, and take it with you! No better way to brave the cold and those crazy holiday shoppers! Good luck!
