There’s a chill in the air which makes me crave warm, soothing drinks like apple cider and hot chocolate. I’m eating healthier, but I treat myself once in a while to chocolate, so I wanted to find a healthier hot chocolate. I tried a hot chocolate experiment at home.
I broke up six pieces of Green & Black’s 70% dark chocolate into a mug. I nuked the mug in the microwave for about a minute.
While “whisking” the chocolate with a fork, I nuked one cup of fat-free milk, in a separate mug, in the microwave for about 1.5 minutes.
I gradually poured the milk into the chocolate mug while whisking. Halfway through, I whisked in a generous helping of cinnamon.
Although I think it might be a tad tastier with 2% or whole milk, it was still pretty darn tasty. Dark chocolate gave it depth, and the cinnamon was just the kick to bump it up a notch.
All of this for just 210 calories–which is 30 fewer calories than Swiss Miss Cocoa Indulgent Dark Chocolate Sensation made with fat-free milk!
