This is a sponsored post.

My family enjoys rich hot chocolate but now that my kids are both Type 1 Diabetics, we have to watch the carbs we drink!  The Vitamin Shoppe has created a recipe for Peppermint Protein Hot Chocolate that is only 6 carbs per serving! That is 1/4th the carbs of  traditional recipes. To make it healthier, use BodyTech Whey Tech Pro Rich Chocolate protein powder, almond or coconut milk and Stevia.
