Nothing says the Holiday's like a cup of hot chocolate. I seriously love the nostalgia of having one, but I don't miss the unnecessary ingredients I remember consuming as a kid.
The ingredients typically looked like this:
Ingredients: sugar, corn syrup, modified whey, cocoa (processed with alkali), hydrogenated coconut oil, nonfat milk, calcium carbonate, less than 2% of: salt, dipotassium phosphate, mono- and diglyderides, artificial flavor. Contains milk.
Now that I know how easy it is to find healthier brands these days and how easily you could just make your own, I no longer to resort to the bad stuff.
Below are my two favorite healthy ways to enjoy hot chocolate. Both free of dairy, low in sugar, and extra tasty.
