- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1.5 tbsp of really good cocoa powder (i like this one)
- 1 tbsp agave nectar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup of whipped cream or 1/3 cup of mini marshmallows on top (optional, each option are 2 pts+)
Put milk and almond milk on the stove and heat until almost boiling. Mix in agave and powder ingredients with a whisk. Pour into a pretty mug and top with whipped cream or marshmallows.
Make your own whipped cream or marshmallows for the most whole product!
Farmer’s markets, specialty stores, and other fun places will sell gourmet cocoa powders or vanilla extracts! These special touches make for an even more fun experience and product! Enjoy!
This is a healthier version of a homemade hot chocolate but it is still a “treat”. The agave will help prevent that sugar crash and the almond milk packs a nice protein punch! And of course, use a really good dark chocolate with antioxidants!
