I love and miss the coziness of a rich cup of hot chocolate before bed when it’s cold and blustery out… So I figured I’d experiment. Give it a shot, see what you think. It totals out to ~4 net carbs, depending on which brands you use.
Per mug/cup you’ll need:
~1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
~1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Sweetener to taste (I use a little over 1 tbsp of Splenda)
In a small saucepan, heat almond milk over med-high heat. Whisk in cocoa powder and sweetener of choice and continue to warm up. Not necessary to bring to boil. If you want a slightly thicker, more indulgent texture, add about 1/8 tsp zantham gum. Thickens it up juuust slightly. Dump in mug. Drink. Hits the spot every time.
