Hot Chocolate Protein Shake

This hot chocolate protein shake is a perfect recipe for the winter blues! It's creamy, nutrient rich and filling! Enjoy this delicious treat on a cold morning or as a snack throughout your day. It can also be made cold by simply replacing the cold water with cold water or nut milk! 


This recipe is from our Freedom Food ebook



1 TBSP cacao powder
2 TBSP cashew butter (or 1/4 cup cashews)
2 TBSP hemp seeds
1 cup Hot Water
1 Scoop protein powder
2 TBSP Monkfruit *
cacao nibs for topping (optional)


1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender.
2. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
3. Pour into a cup or mug and add cacao nibs on top (optional) Enjoy! (Serves 1.)
*If you cannot find monk fruit in your area click the link here to get it on amazon. If it is still not available in your country or region you're welcome to try a few drops of stevia instead (although stevia admittedly is not my favorite) OR if you don't mind a little added sugar feel free to use 1 TBSP of maple syrup or coconut sugar instead.



I just made this. I used chocolate protein powder& only 1tsp cashew butter. I added cacao nibs. It was yummy& satisfied my sweet craving.

I started eating met vegan when I found your channel. This recipe was amazing but mine came out a little to thick. What do you think I did wrong?


This tastes incredible. Though I made mine without the nibs and monfruit and used almond milk, it is nutty, chocolatey heaven!


Mmm just made this (with some slight alterantions-I’m out of protein powder 😆) because I’ve been missing fat lately. Tastes way better than regular hot chocolate!
