For when it is below 55 degrees in Houston, (it is basically freezing) a healthy alternative to one of my favorite winter weather treats. This is a fantastic alternative, especially in comparison to traditional hot cocoa which typically contain 194 calories per 1 cup and a whopping 24 grams of sugar!!
1-1 1/2 Cups of Unsweetened Coconut Milk (Dependent upon your mug)
1 Tablespoon of Unsweetened Cocoa
1 Packet of Stevia
Optional: Mini Marshmallows
Makes 1 Serving!
Combine coconut milk, cocoa, and stevia into your mug of choice. I used a small hand mixer to mix it and add a more frothy texture. Microwave for 3 1/2 minutes and top with marshmallows.
