  • 1 scoop dark chocolate protein powder ** I use Bad Athletics protein (code JORDO for a discount)
  • 1 tbsp dutch cocoa powder
  • 1 cup almond milk ** oat milk also works great!
  • 1 tbsp sugar free maple syrup


  • Add all ingredients to a shaker bottle.
  • Shake well until everything is combined.
  • Pour the mixture into a small sauce pan.
  • Turn on low heat. Use a whisk to stir the mixture while it is heating up. Don’t let it boil!
  • Continue whisking until the mixture is creamy and at desired temperature.
  • Taste and add additional sweetener if you need.
  • Pour into a mug.
  • Add whipped cream and shaved chocolate.
  • Enjoy!
