bariwise hot chocolate...

Everyday I start my morning with BariWise Hot Chocolate.  It's 80 calories, 1g fat, 2g sugar, 3g carbs, and 15g (!) of protein.  They have lots of flavors:  chocolate, chocolate with marshmallows, Irish cream, mocha, amaretto, raspberry, mint, and cinnamon.  It comes 7 envelopes in a box and the cost is about $12.50.

I LOVE this stuff!  It doesn't have that nasty protein taste like many high protein drinks.  I've tried mint, cinnamon, and chocolate.  Cinnamon is my favorite. The chocolate flavor tastes just like regular hot chocolate.  I like the mint, but I probably wouldn't buy it again.  This one did have a bit of a protein taste. Not overpowering, but it seemed like the mint was a cover-up that didn't really work.  But everyone has different taste buds.  What doesn't work for me will be just fine for someone else.  It mixes up pretty good, too, although there are sometimes a few small lumps.  Just break it up with your spoon.  But it's definitely not the nasty clumping that can sometimes happen with other high protein drink mixes.

You can buy it here:  Diet Direct or Bariatric Choice.  They're always running sales so many times I can get it for around $10.00 a box.  They have a referral program, too, where if you refer a friend and they make a purchase, you get $20.00 credit and they get $20.00 off their order.

Note:  The protein in this product isn't whey or soy isolate, which is supposed to be the best source for WLS patients, so don't depend on this for most of your protein.  It's just a good way to get a easy protein boost.

The mug is my own. :)
