#WeightLossRecipe: Almond Milk Hot Chocolate
With just 4 ingredients, this quick dairy-free hot cocoa is the healthy way to get your chocolate fix. A pinch of instant coffee deepens the cocoa flavor, while almond milk makes it creamy. It only tastes decadent!
Recipe type: Drinks
Prep time: 2 min
Serves: 1 cup
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
3-4 packets Truvia, or other sweetener to taste
pinch of instant coffee (optional)
¼ tsp vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
In the bottom of your mug, use a fork to whisk together the first 4 ingredients plus 1 Tbsp of the almond milk for 20-30 seconds. It takes a little effort to get the almond milk to incorporate, but you’ll end up with a smooth paste.
Add ¼ of the remaining almond milk and mix again until smooth. (Should look like chocolate syrup.)
Add the rest of the almond milk and stir until smooth, being sure to scrape the sides.
Microwave for 1-1½ minutes. Give it a final stir and enjoy!
Whiz all ingredients in a blender, transfer to a mug, and microwave 1-1½ minutes until hot.
