Healthy Hot Cocoa

I love hot chocolate, it is so nice to have after you play in the snow, or when you come home from work, or even when you just want something chocolatey. Regular hot chocolate is so good, but it also has a lot of sugar.

If you don’t want all of that sugar in your body then try out this recipe. This recipe was from a healthy eating plan called “Trim Healthy Mama,” I’m sure that many of you have heard of it. The sweetner I’m using for this recipe is a sweetener from Trim Healthy Mama, called Gentle sweet. We usally buy this sweetner from their website, it costs about $10 for a sixteen ounce bag. If you don’t have this sweetner, or don’t want to buy it, then a good substitute would be xylitol, you would still put in the same amount.

I know some of you are thinking would this hot chocolate taste any good without sugar? It tastes just as good, if not better. My entire family loves this hot chocolate. Another thing is that there is only six ingredients in it!
