I’ve been wanting to make another protein shake recipe, but all I have is chocolate powder until I can get to the store again. I was thinking of ideas and saw somewhere (I forget where) that someone made Mexican Hot Chocolate Oatmeal, so I thought “Hey, why not make a Mexican Hot Chocolate protein shake?” I searched through a few recipes of actual Mexican Hot Chocolate and decided I’d just take the general ingredients and wing it. It turned out to be amazing! This shake isn’t a milkshake consistency, more like chocolate milk, but it is so delicious and filling! It’s great as a recovery drink or as a meal replacement!
