Five Ways to Use Protein Hot Chocolate

Five Ways to Use Protein Hot Chocolate

Look, our protein powders are DELICIOUS all on their own, but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up and try something new! Other times, you don’t even realize what options are out there until they are presented to you. 

Below we’ve shared a few ways you can scoop and sip on our fan favorite - Protein Hot Chocolate! 

Hot Chocolate:

Shocking right? With PHC, you can enjoy the classic treat we all know and love without all the added sugars! Each scoop contains 22g of protein, has 1g of sugar, and tastes exactly the same as traditional hot chocolate – it’s the perfect high protein, low carb treat.

All you need is:

  • 1 scoop of Protein Hot Chocolate
  • 10-12 oz of hot water or your choice of milk (whole, 2%, almond, oat, etc.)
  • Optional: whipped cream, marshmallows and/or sprinkles.


  • Start by warming up the milk or water.
  • Slowly add in the PHC powder and combine with a rapid mixer. (Be sure your liquid isn’t too hot or the protein will get grainy – it needs to be a drinkable temperature.)
  • Once combined, top with your choice of toppings and ENJOY!!

This is such a good alternative to traditional hot chocolate with less sugar and more of the good stuff!

Chocolate Milk:

Anyone else LOVE a big tall glass of chocolate milk, but rarely get to enjoy it due to the sugar content? SAME and boy oh boy, do we have just the thing for you! If you combine PHC with cold milk, you can have yourself a big ole glass of chocolate milk without the guilt. It’s as simple as this:


  • 1 scoop of Protein Hot Chocolate
  • Your choice of milk (whole, 2%, almond, oat, etc.)
  • Optional: whipped cream


  • In a tall glass, pour your milk of choice.
  • Slowly add in 1 scoop of PHC and mix with a rapid mixer to get the perfect smooth texture.
  • Top with some whipped cream if you’d like (we suggest because why not).

The key when mixing is to use the rapid mixer while pouring the powder into the milk. This makes it so smooth! You can even add our unflavored Collagen Peptides for some extra protein and nutrients. With the Collagen Peptides, you’ll also want to use the rapid mixer when mixing it in.

Mocha Latte:

Skip your next trip to the coffee shop and save yourself $$ by giving this one a try!! It’s a great alternative to the pricey, sugary mocha latte one would normally order at a coffee shop. Adding protein powder to your coffee is the perfect way to sweeten up your coffee without all the calories and sugar. 

Here’s what you’ll need to make a mocha latte at home:

  • 1 scoop of Protein Hot Chocolate
  • 1-2 shots of espresso OR 6oz of iced coffee
  • 8 oz of your milk of choice

Directions (for a hot latte):

  • Warm up your choice of milk.
  • Combine the milk with 1 scoop of PHC using a rapid mixer. Be sure the milk isn't too hot. 
  • Pour the espresso over the mixture.
  • Optional: Top with whipped cream.

Directions (for an iced latte):

  • Combine the milk with 1 scoop of PHC using a rapid mixer.
  • Add a hefty handful of ice.
  • Pour the iced coffee over the protein mixture.
  • Optional: Top with whipped cream.

These mocha lattes combine the delicious flavors of our Protein Hot Chocolate and coffee. They’re a sweet, creamy, protein-packed pick-me up!

Chocolate Shake:

We can’t name names, but you know those iconic chocolate shakes you can order from that one really popular fast food restaurant…? YES? Stay with me. These days there are all sorts of macro-friendly ice creams in the world, but none of them really do it quite like that one chocolate shake. We have the solution.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 scoop of Protein Hot Chocolate
  • 1 cup of your favorite vanilla ice cream (you can choose a macro-friendly if you’d like for lower calories / sugars)
  • ¼ cup of your choice of milk (whole, 2%, almond, oat, etc.)
  • Optional: whipped cream and/or sprinkles


  • In a blender, blend together 1 scoop of PHC, vanilla ice cream, and milk. (We do offer a portable blender, which is perfect for scenarios like this when you don’t want to bust out your huge blender for a single serving milkshake!)
  • Once you’ve reached your desired consistency, pour into a glass.
  • Top with your choice of toppings and enjoy!

You can also make this shake without ice cream and use milk or water and ice instead, but the consistency won’t be the same nor will the creaminess!

If you love chocolate milkshakes, we promise this recipe is a must-try!

Baked Goods:

Take your favorite baked goods to the next level by adding some PHC into the recipe! It’s an easy and delicious way to increase your protein intake, reap the amazing benefits of protein, while also enjoying a sweet treat. There are so many baked goods that you can sneak protein powder into, especially if you like chocolate, but a few of our favorites would be brownies, muffins, cookies, and waffles/pancakes. The options are endless though!

All you need is the ingredients in your recipe and a bag of our Protein Hot Chocolate. Follow the recipe directions, add 2-3 scoops of protein powder to the mixture, bake as instructed, and ENJOY! One thing to note is that you may need to add a little extra liquid to the recipe to make up for the added protein – it will vary based on the recipe.

Protein Hot Chocolate’s creamy and rich chocolate flavor is delectable no matter how you choose to enjoy it: heated up like traditional hot chocolate, shaken with room temp water for on-the-go sips, or mixed with ice cold milk for chocolate milk vibes! How will you enjoy PHC?
