Frozen Hot Chocolate

Have you ever been to Serendipity?

If so, have you ever had their frozen hot chocolate? Its heaven.




Honestly, I haven’t had one of these in years. YEARS.

How depressing. We need a serendipity in SLC.

Frozen Hot Chocolate is an ice-y treat made with 14 different types of chocolate and topped with whip cream and shaved chocolate! It is served in a ginormous goblet that is the size of a small child. (not really..) but you get my drift.

Is your mouth watering yet? 

Well, knowing I’m nowhere near a Serendipity, I could not fulfill this craving.

Or could I? --I ran around my kitchen, pulling out every kind of chocolate I could find. Whipped it all together and enjoyed every sip.

Made a great recovery shake post-workout!

Frozen Hot Chocolate (protein style)



  • 1.5 C. Chocolate Coconut milk
  • 1 scoop Chocolate protein
  • 1 tbsp. Dark Ghirardelli cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp. Sugar Free Nesquick
  • Pinch of xanthan gum
  • Ice 8-10 cubes (I prefer my shakes more on the think side.)


Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.


I was missing the goblet, cream and about 10 other types of chocolate.. but it was perfect in every other way.


If you are a chocolate lover, give this a go.


Random note: Serendipity also has a dessert called golden opulence Sundae.

You can enjoy this dessert for only $1000. (chump change..)

Seriously?! AND you have to give them 48 hours in advance.. Plan ahead folks. Because it is made with the most expensive chocolate and topped with REAL gold!



Injury update:

My hip and foot started bothering me after my long run two weeks ago and I have been taking it pretty easy on my foot and haven’t ran much at all in a WEEK! Its starting to feel a little better, but I don’t want to push it to hard to early so I’m going to ease into running again slowly.. Realistically, my main goal is to make it through my long run this weekend.. crossing my fingers! Lots of ice, rolling and stretching have been happening, and I hope it gets me to full recovery.

ALSO, I received a few more questions and emails about my experience with Paleo- I will make another post about it this week. Let me know if you have any other questions and I will address them in that post!

AND… Don’t forget to vote if you haven’t already.

Thank You!!!

Q. Would you ever EVER spend $1,000 on a dessert?

Q. Chocolate or Vanilla?
