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!

  1. have severe dairy allergy, so I can't do this, but it's a great idea for those that can! I made something similar using coconut cream for my son, and he said it was "ok". Problem with coconut is that sometimes it overshadows the chocolate. Thanks for posting. Even though I can't have this recipe, I am constantly grateful for your postings 🙂

    1. Gelatin would congeal and make it hot chocolate gummies. The whey protein mixes well and lends a nice flavor, plus extra protein 🙂

  2. Hi! In looking for a healthier hot chocolate mix than I have used in years past, I discovered your site. I clicked on the link to look at the whey protein you suggested and became overwhelmed! Which one would you suggest for a basic hot chocolate mix? Which have you used? Wouldn’t the chocolate whey protein give it an overpowering chocolate flavor? Also, thinking it would be good to have one I could use in other recipes. Help!

    1. Hi Linda, nope it doesn’t give it an overwhelming chocolate flavor. It’s delicious! We also really love using this new bone broth protein powder: realfoodrn.com/bbproteinpowder.

  3. I’ve been reading about the whey powder via the link you provided. From what I understand if it’s heated you destroy the benefit of the glutathione in the whey and to acutally have access to it in the first place the whey should be cold processed. Not to rain on the parade, I’m certain it’s better than swiss miss… 😉 …just not certain it should be stated that we’re getting all the benefits of the grass fed whey and the glutathione. Maybe if it’s cold chocolate milk mix? And I drink collagen in my coffee and it doesn’t cogeal until it goes cold sitting on the counter, I’ve never tried to rewarm it, but I think it would just melt again.
