By: Matt Weik, BS, CSCS, CPT, CSN 

Who doesn’t love a good cup of hot cocoa to warm up and satisfy your chocolate craving? While a delicious cup of hot cocoa is great for cold days or frigid nights, let’s face it, it’s a beverage you can enjoy anytime and year-round. If only there were a healthy hot chocolate out there without all the sugar and carbs, so you weren’t essentially sipping on a cup of diabetes.


If you’re a fan of hot cocoa mixes but aren’t exactly thrilled with the 30+ grams of carbohydrates and over 25+ grams of sugar per serving, we’re now offering you a hug in a mug with our NutraBio Hot Cocoa w/ Marshmallows.

No, we’re not joking. We’ve created a healthy hot chocolate that is loaded with 20 grams of whey protein isolate and that only contains 120 calories, 2 grams of fat, 3 grams of carbohydrates, and 2 grams of sugar. This flavorful delight will warm your stomach and soul with each sip.

The Perfect Better-For-You Healthy Hot Chocolate

Those premade hot cocoa mix packets seem to tempt us when we’re in the mood for a hot, chocolatey beverage — especially as the temperature drops or the holidays are quickly approaching. The profile of those hot cocoa mixes seems to always cause people to either find a healthier beverage alternative or feel guilty later after drinking the sugary and chocolatey goodness.

One thing you’ve come to love and expect from NutraBio is our comfort in being uncomfortable and the ability to see a problem and find a solution. And when it comes to hot cocoa, we needed a solution.

When we went to the drawing board to formulate a product that allowed you to sip, smile, and savor, there were a few boxes we needed to check:

✅  Pack it with high-quality whey protein isolate

✅  Include those delicious little marshmallows

✅  Make it low in carbs and sugar

✅  Have it taste better than traditional hot cocoa

✅  Must be easy to make and prepare

We can proudly say we checked all the boxes.

You no longer need to feel guilty when your taste buds crave hot cocoa. Now, you can reach for NutraBio Hot Cocoa w/ Marshmallows. With our healthy hot chocolate, each sip is a smart, guilt-free high-five for your taste buds and well-being.

NutraBio Hot Cocoa w/ Marshmallows is a sweet remix of your favorite classic, only with a dash of nutritional finesse to suit your wants, needs, and goals. This healthy hot chocolate doesn’t just play nice with your sweet tooth, it’s a savvy choice that helps you curb your cravings, allowing you to not only stay on track with your nutrition but also help support your muscle-building and recovery efforts in the process.


There’s Math Involved with Creating a Protein Hot Chocolate?

The good news is that there is no math quiz at the end of this article. The even better news is that we did all the math for you already.

Surely, we all know that 2 + 2 = 4 (if you didn’t know that, we won’t judge you). But the secret behind the NutraBio swoon-worthy sip of our protein hot chocolate not only comes from doing a little subtraction, but some addition as well.

Your typical hot cocoa packet is high in carbs and sugar while being incredibly low in protein. As a fitness enthusiast and someone who understands what proper nutrition should look like, you know that profile is backward to what you should be looking for. Therefore, we created the NutraBio Hot Cocoa w/ Marshmallows not only with love, but with an added 20 grams of the highest quality whey protein isolate. We also subtracted the macros you tend to worry about to provide you with a guilt-free protein hot chocolate you can enjoy anytime.
