the process of making Epic Protein Frozen Hot Chocolate is really straightforward and easy!
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2 cup dairy-free yogurt
- 3 medjool dates
- 1 scoop of vanilla or chocolate protein powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup dairy-free milk

pour and crown: once you’ve achieved the perfect blend, pour the frozen hot chocolate into your favorite glasses. elevate your creation by topping it with generous swirls of vegan whipped cream or dollops of dairy-free yogurt.
