Trim Healthy Mama Snickers Hot Cocoa

Who doesn’t love a mug of warm chocolatey goodness? I’m a sucker for Snickers y’all. Peanuts and caramel and chocolate…. oh my. A local coffee shop sells a fabulous Snickers Latte and I’m in love with it. It could definitely wreck all my wonderful progress on the Trim Healthy Mama plan. Thankfully I’ve made a sugar-free version that’s right on plan. It even has a scoop of protein powder to keep my blood sugar nice and regulated and ward of any snacking urges.

The Trim Healthy Mama brand protein powder is just fantastic. Light and creamy, with no weird after taste – it’s made with the purest ingredients and held to a high standard. Honestly I’ve never liked any protein powders until I tried theirs, now I’m hooked. Adding a scoop to this yummy hot cocoa makes this tasty drink a perfect mid-day snack to keep me going until dinner. Oh, and my progress so far? I’ve lost 55 pounds since February! Want to hop on the Trim Train? Order the Trim Healthy Mama book and get started! You won’t regret it. You’ll lose weight while enjoying amazing goodies, like this Snickers Hot Cocoa. It’s a win-win!

ingredients for Snickers Hot Cocoa - Trim Healthy Mama (S)

Combine ingredients in a blender. I’m totally in love with my Ninja Bullet System. Seriously, I don’t know how I managed life with out these handy little cups that fit right onto the blender. You certainly don’t have to use your blender, though. You can whisk together all the ingredients in a sauce pan. I like the blender to make sure I’ve fully combined all the ingredients for maximum creaminess.

Blend until smooth – and you could drink this right here, no problem – but I like to pour it into a small sauce pan and heat until very warm.

    Hi, is this protein powder low carb or zero carb? I have never bought any protein powder. It’s so $$… I couldn’t find this brand listed at Amazon just now either. Can you recommend one I can buy from amazon? Which flavor? And what is protein made out of exactly? Is it like powdered eggs? What could it be? Thanks so much for your help!

    1. Amanda Coers

      Hi Molly πŸ™‚ Yes, the protein powder I use is low carb, made with whey protein. This is an extremely excellent and informative article, written by Serene – one of the Trim Healthy Mama authors – about whey protein powder:

      It’s long, but super valuable and well worth reading. It’s important to understand food and what heals our bodies and helps our metabolisms. Personally, I highly recommend the Trim Healthy Mama brand protein powder because I feel I can trust it. The ingredients are pure, and it’s processed with the utmost care to retain nutrients.

      When shopping for alternative protein powders, it’s important to look for “whey protein isolate” in the ingredients. It’s also best to select a powder with as few ingredients as possible. Many protein powders come with hidden sugars and additives. Avoid whey protein concentrates, and look for cross-flow micro filtered whey protein isolate or (CFM).

      It’s also important to remember that you pay for what you get. I’m all for saving money whenever possible. But there are some things that are worth spending a little more for, like food items. I’d rather pay more for food that I know is healthy and good for me, than save money and have to buy medication later in life.

      Hope that helps! Thanks for visiting my blog – Amanda πŸ˜€

      1. Molly

        Yes, this helps a lot! Thank you so much. I will try to buy some asap! I live in FL, so it’s not even cool down here yet, but soon–hopefully–we will have some cool weather and I’ll be in the mood for some hot cocoa. And nothing I love more than chocolate AND pb together!

    Amanda!!! Thanks SO much for posting this! Perfect timing. We just got our first huge snow in MN and I’m thinking, ‘great, how am I going to survive this without a nice hot drink that’s good for me??’ All my decaf and non-dairy creamer stuff doesn’t work anymore. Thanks for a great solution! πŸ™‚ Just one question . . . would microwaving this kill all the good stuff?

    1. Amanda Coers

      Hi Cheryl πŸ˜€ Glad I can help – I’m not a science-y gal, so I don’t know about the microwave, but I can tell you that I would certainly microwave mine if I were in a hurry.

    Hello Amanda…I just have to say…I have been acquainted with THM since July 1…during that time I have tried quite a few recipes…some good others well…I am a Drive Thru Sue so I can’t blame the recipes because I am not much of a cook. ANYWAY, thank you for all the work and experimenting you put into the wonderful recipes you produce. YOU are very much appreciated!! P.S. you can’t possibly have 7 kids unless you had your first one at 5 years…you look like my 21 year old granddaughter! πŸ™‚

    1. Amanda Coers

      Linda I love you LOL πŸ˜€ Thanks for the awesome encouragement and compliments

  4. Mommy Mags

    So is this an S or FP? I am assuming S with thw cream and peanut butter?

    1. Amanda Coers

      Yes this is an S πŸ™‚

      1. Mommy Mags

        I just made it and it was wonderful! Thank you!!

  5. Mrs RBC

    I haven’t read the book yet so maybe this is covered but what do they say about peanuts? So many are full of bacteria, no? Just wondering…All the recipes look fantastic! Thanks.

    1. Amanda Coers

      I dont think that’s covered in the book. I trust the peanut butter I’m using, but you could bring this to a low boil to kill any bacteria if you’re very concerned.

      1. Lil

        What peanut butter is okay for the THM plan? Brand? and where do you buy it?

        1. Amanda Coers

          Look for an all-natural peanut butter with no sugar. I buy the Kroger brand.

  6. Carina

    Could you sub defatted peanut flour for the peanut butter?

  7. Felicia

    could this be made a FP ?

    1. Amanda Coers

      I think a few others have been able to make this FP using a teaspoon of peanut flour and omitting the cream. I havent tried it yet πŸ™‚

  8. Bev Charman

    i am interested in trying the program .. this recipe looks good… the only peanut butter i find has 1 gram per serving.. will it still work Thanks

  9. Lisa

    I did not read the entire recipe, ‘silly me’. I cooked it all in the pot and whisked as I went. Well it got very thick and had Chunks in it! Yuk! I’m assuming that’s from the whey. Ahhh! I’m going to try this again and blend it first! One thing I figured out though….it is yummy! Thank you!

    Hi, my friend does Trim Healthy Mama and she wanted me to try it but I have some questions? any ideas how to do it with no grains, no dairy and no soy or wheat? I have so many sensitivities that it’s hard to find good food without anything in it. LOL

    Mine turned out very thick – did I do something wrong? I followed recipe to a “T”. πŸ™

    1. Amanda Coers

      I’m not sure why some batches are getting too thick, but a splash of almond milk once it’s done could help.

  14. Mrs. Price

    I love this! I just made it and I am in heaven! Thank you!

  15. Michelle

    I’ worried about the 1-2 Tbsp of xylitol. Should it be tsp instead? I’ve been scared to try it because a friend of mine had terrible stomach pains after using xylitol. I usually use Truvia.

    1. Claire

      You could use Truvia instead

  16. Fran

    The flavore was there but, it was so thick I could use a spoon. I am going to try it again tonight. I will add more almond milk and less whey protein. Also, I used trivia to sweeten it. I was thinking this could be a chocolate peanut butter pudding if done right. It taste fantastic!!

    What do the abbreviations S and E mean? I read about Trim Healthy Mama in Woman’s World last week and have enough to try their few recommended meals and know that the basic idea is carb heavy at one meal, or fat heavy at one meal, not both together…I don’t have the book yet but I think the idea behind that makes sense and want to get started trying some new recipes…I just don’t know what these abbreviations mean.

    1. Amanda Coers

      S and E stand for Satisfying and Energizing – the two main types of meal classifications for THM πŸ™‚ The book really is essential! I was really excited to see the article in Woman’s World, but there were a few inaccuracies (like white potatoes in an E meal). There’s a large and very helpful Facebook group full of other Trim Healthy Mamas for support and encouragement too.

  19. Linda Hahn

    Does this count as a meal or a snack?

    1. Amanda Coers

      I feel like this is a snack because there’s not enough nutrients for a meal
