This isn't high protein but just in case anyone is looking for a low-carb hot chocolate drink I thought I would mention that Vitarium drinking chocolate is really nice. It says to make it with hot milk but I just use about 2/3 boiling water and top up with thickened cream to keep it really low-carb. It's sweetened with Natvia and is available at Woolies if anyone is interested.
This is an old post but just re-posting it because I checked out Vitarium website today and there are new products.
Banana, strawberry and two chcocolate mixes.
They are pretty low in carbs (ranging from less than 1.0g for 4 tsp serve up to about 1.8 from memory).
They are sweetened with erythritol and are produced by the same crowd that make Natvia.
I'm thinking the banana and strawberry might be good to add to my natural protein whey for a smoothie.
Rang my local Coles supermarket (they only have the drinking chocolate flavour).
They did mention though another product (strawberry) - with similar carb count - made by NZ company (using erythritol and stevia).
Will purchase some and post my thoughts plus the name when I get some.
If anyone has tried the Vitarium choc, banana or strawberry would be interested to hear what you think of them.Cheers,
Ozgal (LCHF looks like the plan for me)
It's all about the journey!
I have had the chocolate, its ok but does of course have that cooling taste.
Just make a hot chocolate that is rich in protein. Chocolates can make you awake especially in the morning. Chocolate drinks can give more energy. I just drink a cup of coffee or hot chocolate in the morning before I go to the park and run. The sweet taste of the chocolate helps me to brighten my day. My winter morning is complete with a hot chocolate.
