Hot Cocoa Power Oatmeal with a Mug of Hot Cocoa! All Clean!

Yet another snowy day here in Pittsburgh! The roads are too bad to go anywhere yet again— cars were backsliding down the hill I live on! The door is frozen solid— even the lock is coated in ice! Brrrrrrrrr… I’m keeping my booty parked in front of the fireplace today!

And what is better on a freezing winter day than a mug of steaming hot cocoa? Nothing! So, in honor of today’s blizzard, I present: clean hot cocoa power oatmeal and clean hot cocoa! YUM!

Recipe:
Hot Cocoa Power Oatmeal (Serves 1)

1/2 Cup oats
1 Cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 Scoop chocolate whey protein powder (I used About Time/SDC Nutrition)
1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 Teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
2 Packets Truvia/Stevia
Optional: carob chips or baking chocolate

In a pot over the stove, simmer the oats in the unsweetened almond milk until the majority of the liquid is gone. Remove from heat, and stir in the remaining ingredients. Garnish with carob chips or baking chocolate if desired just before serving!

Recipe:
Clean Hot Cocoa (Serves 1— Only 40 calories!)

1 Cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 Teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
4 Packets Truvia/Stevia

In a pot over the stove, simmer the unsweetened almond milk over low heat. Whisk in the remaining ingredients until throughly combined. Once the hot cocoa is thoroughly mixed and heated, pour into a mug to serve and enjoy your chocolatey goodness!

What a delicious way to start the day off when it’s so cold that you just can’t seem to get going! But, of course, get going I will! How about all of you guys out there— keeping warm, hibernating, what? I want to know!
