Ugh!!! I am in LOVE! I started catching up with a show on tv, Once Upon a Time. I love it! It's so different and I have always been a fairy tale lover, so it was meant to be.
On a foodie note, while watching it, I noticed they kept drinking hot cocoa with cinnamon on top. Not being one to judge a book by it's cover, I had to try it. If this is a common way to drink hot cocoa, then I have unfortunately been unaware for three decades!
Of course, I turned it into a hot protein drink, and NOM NOM, I have a new favorite winter meal!
Once Upon a Cinnamon Protein Drink:
4 oz milk of your choice (I used 1%)
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 packet no sugar added hot chocolate mix
2 tbsp granulated splenda (or two packets)
3 pumps SF Cinnamon Dolce syrup (starbucks brand)
8 oz boiling water
Whipped cream and sprinkle of cinnamon
Mix powders in milk until lump free. Add in splenda and syrup. Then, slowly pour in boiling water (about one oz at a time) until all the h2o is mixed in. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle of cinnamon.
Mmmmmmm, it was soooo good and check out the porn!
