Best Hot Cocoa Protein Drink



Recommended Posts

I enjoyed the bucket of Prodiet hot cocoa and it is time to order more. Before I do, any other low/moderate carb Protein hot cocoas I should try?

i have some in the mail coming to me! Are you able to really heat it up or is more warm chocolate than hot chocolate?

I was going to say that I just use regular chocolate Protein powder but this morning I tried to make a "dirty chai" - vanilla powder, SF chai Syrup, splash of coffee. I made it with boiling hot Water and the coffee was fresh and hot and the coffee ... curdled my protein! I can't think of a better word, it turned my Protein chunky! I'm dismayed, AND I have to drink/chew it because I can't afford to waste. Epic fail.

I think you need to buy the type made as cocoa. I was able to heat the ProtiDiet good and hot but I bought a tiny little wire whip from bed bath and beyond and kinda kept it stirred in the coffee cup. It tended to settle to the bottom otherwise. It wasn't heavenly good, but it was good and good protein/low carb.

Where can I find the mint cocoa?

I heat the Water HOT and then mix in the cocoa - you do have to stir it well and I always "swish" my cup before taking a sip cuz like CGJ says, it does tend to settle but it doesn't get lumpy, just settles

I've ordered the Cappuccino as well as the mint one...I will let y'all know ASAP how they are. But, the Proti Diet hot cocoa is really good to me...I cannot stand Protein shakes but this I like.

Well, I found a workaround for my problem, I make the Protein with cold Water, then gradually add hot Water (or hot coffee) until the whole beverage is hot. It works but can sometimes result in an overly watered down Protein :/ c'est la vie.

The Proti Diet hot cocoa will just settle Globe, and all I do is swish my cup, I add the hot Water and stir til all the lumps are gone...it dissolves well.

Protein powders will do that when you heat above 140

Well, I have tried to make hot cocoas, coffee-mocha type drinks etc and I never got that great of results with the regular Protein powders. I did the same thing which was to mix it with room temp Water and then add the hot Water or coffee. The ProtiDiet really does hold up to the heat and you can have an actual HOT cocoa without weirdness. It does settle, so you do need to either swirl or stir, but it mixes well.

anyway, I guess I will order more of it since I didn't hear a groundswell of another one to try! In the winter, a nice hot cocoa is such a treat and the Protein is good for me!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
