Note: The can of coconut milk should be refrigerated overnight or placed in a freezer a couple of hours ahead of time so that the cream hardens for use.

Making this for a group of friends or family? Here are measurements for 32 fl. oz (4 cups):

  • 4 cups almond milk (or your choice non-dairy milk)
  • 4-1 inch squares of dark, non-dairy chocolate (or more if you want a richer chocolate flavor)*
  • 2 Tbsp and 2 tsp Growing Naturals chocolate pea protein, packed
  • 1 Tbsp and 1 tsp Growing Naturals vanilla rice protein, packed
  • 2 tsp coconut cream (skimmed from a can of coconut milk)**
  • 1 Tbsp and 1 tsp your choice sweetener (optional)

Directions

  1. Place the almond milk and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat and stir constantly until the chocolate is entirely melted.  Alternately heat in the microwave for 2-3 minutes in a small glass bowl.
  2. Whisk in the protein powders, coconut cream and mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour into your favorite mug and enjoy 🙂
