If you've chosen a sugar-free way of eating, it doesn't mean you have to give up all the treats that you love, including chocolate. Make a cup of sugar-free hot chocolate and prove that sugar-free doesn't have to mean flavor-free.
Things You'll Need
- 1/4 cup dry milk
- 2 tsp. Dutch processed cocoa, European style
- 2 tsp. sugar substitute
- 1 cup hot whole milk
- 1 large mug
- 3 cups powdered milk
- 1 cup sugar substitute
- 1/2 cup Dutch processed cocoa, European style
- 1 pkg. instant chocolate pudding mix
One Cup Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate Recipe
Place the dry milk, cocoa powder and sugar substitute in a large mug.
Pour boiling water over the ingredients.
Stir well and serve with a dollop of sugar free whipped topping.
Large Batch Recipe
Place all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender.
Blend the mixture until the ingredients are incorporated and no lumps remain.
Store the sugar free hot chocolate in an airtight container.
Stir 1/4 quarter of the sugar free hot chocolate mix into 1 cup of boiling water.
Tips & Warnings
- Use non-fat dry milk powder and skim milk or 2 percent milk if you want to cut the amount of fat in the hot chocolate. The drink won't be as creamy but will still taste good.
- Garnish a cup of hot chocolate with a sugar free peppermint stick and have festive peppermint hot chocolate.
- Regular unsweetened cocoa can be substituted for Dutch processed cocoa, but won't be quite as rich and chocolatey.
- Stir a teaspoon of cinnamon, cloves or allspice into a hot cup of sugar free chocolate and make delicious spiced chocolate.
