Best Hot Cocoa Protein Drink



Recommended Posts

I tried the BariWise Cappuccino today...it's really good...and I've tried the WonderSlim one as well...I like it, but it has 3 g less Protein in it soooo I won't buy those again

So I'm sitting here drinking my first cup of the Proti Diet hot cocoa and I'm loving it....scalding hot with no Protein clumping. Woohoo!!!! So looking at the ingredients it's basically milk protein concentrate, cocoa powder, plus some stuff (gelatin, corn Syrup, etc). There's nothing magic in it. I'm thinking....you could do this with non-fat powdered milk and cocoa and save a bunch of $$. It's 90 calories (delicious calories) , 5 carbs, 15 protein. Anyone tried to do this homemade?

Ohhh I'm glad you like it!! I drink it all the time. I haven't tried homemade...not sure how the Protein Powder would do...but if you find a way to make it cheaper...please share :-)

I tried cocoa making it with powdered milk and cocoa to increase the protein content. Dees. Gusting. The dried milk smelled like baby spit up.

I am on a hyper controlled diet due to autoimmune issues so can only have some very specific items, definitely NO white sugar, NO corn Syrup, etc. But my Mom found this hot cocoa mix called NibMor that is about as clean as it gets without harvesting the cacao myself ;) And I've discovered that when I am jonesing for hot cocoa (which is a LOT lately, I blame the thread!! :P) I make it with hot Water, just a fraction of the "serving" of cocoa, and juuuuust enough milk to give it a milky mouthfeel. That way I get satisfied, get my treat, and only spend maybe 20 cals max.

I've used my Premier Protein in milk chocolate flavor as cocoa. I buy the premade shakes at costco and just heat it up in the microwave in a mug. Tastes great! Just like hot chocolate!

I tried the premiere Protein today, warmed it in the microwave. One minute, stirred, then another minute. It was the best hot chocolate ever!

Too funny I was just thinking about trying to do that with the Premier Protein shakes today but chickened out but may give it a try tomorrow. Hoping I like it because it has been so cold here & I would love a nice hot cup of "hot chocolate"

I had the premiere Protein tonight as hot chocoloate. It was very good and seemed like a bigger serving when I poured it in a huge mug, but i am not sure i like it as well as the ProtiDiet. Nonetheless, great solution to my hot cocoa crisis - thank you!!!

How come I am the only one who ever mentions Click or Chike Protein coffee/hot chocolate?

I'm a total chike addict! Our Breakfast every single morning is a chike coffee shake.

      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!
