As the colour shows, I didn't use a vast amount of chocolate flavouring, but you definitely still taste it. I combined regular cocoa powder and cocoa-based protein powder (the same mix I mentioned earlier in the month). If you don't have protein powder, cocoa powder alone will suffice.
I also decorated this with freeze dried raspberry pieces. They added to my enjoyment because I liked the look, but obviously aren't essential. The raspberries within the drink give enough raspberry flavour.
