Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth… Healthfully
Have a craving for something sweet? Instead of giving-in to your sweet tooth with something unhealthy, get the best of both worlds and learn how to make a healthy cup of hot cocoa.
- Lowfat or skim milk
- unsweetened cocoa
- pinch of salt
- Non-fat Cool Whip
In a microwave-safe mug, heat a mug almost full of low fat or skim milk for a minute and a half (time will vary with different microwaves). Next add about 1 TBS of unsweetened cocoa powder (more or less to taste) slowly, stirring and fully mixing into the warmed milk. Once the cocoa has been completely blended with the milk, add a couple of Splenda packets (your preference on the amount). Now, add a very small pinch of salt and some cinnamon (salt is a flavor enhancer, and cinnamon is optional). For extra yummy-ness, add some low- or non-fat cool whip to the top.
- Try adding vanilla for flavoring.
- Don’t heat the milk up- you can burn your tongue!!!
