 Creamy Vanilla Cinnamon Hot Chocolate
As the weather is turning colder this is the perfect drink to snuggle up into the fall season with (and winter too). I find that it is ironic that this is a hot chocolate recipe without chocolate! However, I love the flavors of cinnamon and vanilla together. There is nothing better than combining these two delicious flavors to create a satisfyingly healthy drink that you can feel good about!

 Creamy Vanilla Cinnamon Hot Chocolate
This recipe for Creamy Vanilla Cinnamon Chocolate uses protein powder to put a new healthy twist on a old favorite. It is a spin off of the other hot chocolate recipe I created called healthy hot chocolate. That recipe was the basic chocolate one and this recipe is a variation that uses vanilla protein powder instead. There are so many combinations of hot chocolate that can be created so you will no doubt be seeing more related posts on this site! (I have some pretty good ideas up my sleeve).  🙂

Creamy Vanilla Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

Servings 1 serving

Ingredients

  • Vanilla protein powder of choice
  • Milk of choice
  • dash of vanilla
  • dash of cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Pour milk into a microwave safe mug filling until about an 1/2 inch to 1 inch from the top (need room to stir)
  2. Add as much or as little protein powder as you want
  3. stir in the rest of ingredients *See NOTE
  4. Microwave on high until hot and frothy
  5. Add marshmallows, sprinkle with more cinnamon or a dollop of cool whip on top. (coconut would taste nice too!)

Recipe Notes

The protein powder has a tendency not to want to mix into the milk and clump together. It may be necessary to whisk all ingredients together in a bowl (first measure out milk in mug then transfer to bowl) and then pour back into the mug to be microwaved. You can also use a protein shake mixer with the little wire ball in it. Feel free to play around with different flavors by adding different types of extracts like banana, coconut, maple, root beer, and caramel!
