First, put the kettle on. ;) While the water is boiling mix up about 1/4 cup of milk or cold water with a scoop of protein. Using a shaker cup works fine for this, but if you give it a good zazz in the magic bullet it makes your hot chocolate nice and frothy! To make candy cane hot chocolate vs. regular hot chocolate, add 2-3 drops of peppermint flavouring. Careful!! Peppermint flavouring is VERY strong, a little goes a long way! Put this mixture into your mug and once your water is boiled, top up the cup with hot water, stir, and enjoy! If feeling extra indulgent (once again, like I did) top off with some fat free whipped cream.
**TIP** NEVER put hot water into your shaker and think you can get a good hot protein beverage by shaking it up the same as a cold shake. Instead what you get is a big mess all over your kitchen counter, walls, and self, due to an exploding beverage. I learned this the hard way and I am passing this advice on to you!!
