Low Carb ( NO-Sugar-Added ) Frozen Peppermint Hot Chocolate and my review of Les Mills Good Protein!
During the holiday season around every coffee shop anywhere, you can get what’s called a Frozen Hot Chocolate.
You know what I mean right?
Basically it’s like all those other flavored frozen drinks at Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks.
Being sugar-free for 12 years now, I’ve never actually tasted one.
Do I feel like I’m missing out? Not in the least.
I sometimes might feel a bit of envy when I see a frozen, cool looking, coffee drink topped with whipped cream in someones hand, but often I really don’t care.
I don’t care because I’ve kicked the sugar habit. It doesn’t pull me in like it used to and it doesn’t ever make me want to go back to that feeling of out of control cravings.
When I do feel that slight bit of beverage envy, I retaliate. I retaliate at home in my kitchen making anything I want just as good, if not better, then what I see out in the world from day to day.
When I was contacted to try Les Mills Good Protein I was thrilled to be able to support a brand that clearly I can endorse.
With just 6 simple ingredients and only sweetened with my favorite sugar free sweetener of all times, stevia, I knew this was a match made for me!
Low in carbs, low in calories and full of protein. It has just 6 ingredients, no added fillers, no fructose and ethically sourced protein from the milk of grassfed cows.
I knew I HAD to make something spectacular with this chocolate flavored deliciousness!
Envy no more!
Frozen Hot Chocoate has come to the rescue made in the privacy of your own home and you can switch out the sweetener for whatever you prefer!
My oldest and I also enjoyed Les Mills Good Protein very simply using one scoop mixed with unsweetened almond milk. It was filling and not very sweet which was perfect for me. The teen added a banana to his to give it a little more sweetness. Both the chocolate and vanilla flavors are delicious and filling! The teen didn’t even need a snack before lunch and that is saying a lot for a 15 year old growing boy!
My feeling is that when you can make a fabulous frozen drink like this at home, you will be completely satisfied and be able to sustain a sugar free life style. Because in the end this isn’t a diet, it’s a day to day decision to make the best choice for yourself and your body.
