Classic Hot Chocolate Shake Recipe
Drinking a cold smoothie on a chilly autumn morning isn’t always appealing to me - especially when all I want to do is crawl back into bed! Luckily, this Classic Hot Chocolate Shake gives me something to look forward to when I wake up and keeps me satiated and cozy. I prefer drinking this in the morning for breakfast, but it’s also a great snack when you’re craving something sweet. This hot chocolate can be made in just minutes to fit the busiest of schedules and in my opinion, is way tastier than the sugary prepackaged hot chocolates!
With 20g of protein and 10g of fiber, this Classic Hot Chocolate Shake not only offers amazing flavors, but an impressive amount of nutrition to keep you full while providing your body with the fuel it needs. While there are some ingredients that you typically don't see in a regular hot chocolate, such as almond butter and banana, they add great flavor and essential vitamins to balance your health. Let’s get started!
What You Need to Make this Hot Shake
The ingredients that are in this shake are 310 Organic Chocolate, banana, unsweetened almond milk, almond butter, vanilla extract, a dash of sea salt, and a date (optional). A date is great to add for a touch of additional sweetness, if desired.
310 Organic Chocolate
If you’ve never tried 310 Organic Chocolate in a warm beverage, this recipe is a great opportunity to test it out! I love how this meal replacement shake gives any smoothie a milky chocolate flavor, but it tastes like a true hot chocolate when prepared hot. It’s naturally-sweetened and formulated without artificial ingredients or flavorings, for a healthy and nourishing treat that everyone can enjoy! It’s easy for me to recommend this meal replacement shake to my friends and family because it’s vegan, keto, and paleo-friendly to suit a wide variety of lifestyles!
I could keep going about why 310 Shakes are a pantry essential, but below are some additional key points…
- 15g of plant-based proteins derived from pumpkin, brown rice, and pea
- 5g of dietary fiber per serving
- Free from sugar, gluten, dairy, soy, and GMOs
- Blend of powerful superfoods including kale, spinach, spirulina, ginger, turmeric, and more
