Up here in Minnesota, we have loooong winters. Well, a girl has got to stay warm. How do I do that? Easy: chocolate, and lots of it.

Of course, I had to come up with a way to make my frequent consumption justifiable, so I loaded it with protein and mixed it into warm grass-fed milk. That makes it healthy! Better have another cup. Make this hot beverage and give it away as a holiday gift too: Healthy Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix. 

Let me justify this for you a bit more: 

Whey protein: the overall top food for maximizing your glutathione is high-quality whey protein. Gluta-what? Glutathione is your body’s most powerful antioxidant and has even been called “the master antioxidant.” It is a tripeptide found inside every single cell in your body. You can read more about it HERE

Coconut Sugar: Coconut sugar is a much, much more nutritional substitute for the white sugar you find at the stores. It actually had nutritional value! Check out the comparison with THIS CHART.

Real Cocoa PowderOne cup of cocoa powder contains 1311 grams of potassium, an essential mineral found in plants which regulate heartbeat, blood pressure, and sodium levels, and provides more than 25 percent of the recommended daily intake of 4700 milligrams for adults. Cocoa powder also contains phosphorus, magnesium, and calcium, which build bones, tissues, and nerves in the body (source). Plus, it’s a mild stimulant — Wheee!

Healthy Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

This healthy homemade hot chocolate mix is loaded with protein and mixed into warm grass-fed milk. That makes it healthy! Better have another cup!


  • 1 cup whey protein powder (vanilla or chocolate, you decide)
  • 1/2 coconut cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt


1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix together with a whisk.

2. Store in an airtight container.

3. Mix 2-3 heaping Tbsps of mix to one cup hot water, or even better, raw milk and serve.

4. I like to gently heat it on the stovetop.

5. If you like a minty hot chocolate, I love to add one drop of peppermint essential oil to mine.


NOTE: I only use therapeutic grade essential oils in my recipes, you can find them HERE.
