  • In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the protein powder and cocoa powder.
  • Whisk all remaining ingredients into the dry ingredients until well combined.
  • Pour into a small pot and bring to a simmer, stirring while heating to ensure the hot chocolate doesn’t burn.
  • Pour into 2 serving cups and top with vegan marshmallows, if using.
  • Serve immediately.




  • Adjust the sweetness by adding maple syrup to taste.
  • Any milk can be used instead of almond milk.
  • You could try adding 1 tsp orange zest, 1 tsp ground cinnamon or 1 tsp instant coffee granules to add a different flavor.
  • Dust with cocoa powder or ground cinnamon.
