Hello, Christmas is just around the corner. And I am so excited! The week of Christmas is always so busy for me. My birthday is the day before Christmas Eve. Then me, and my entire family celebrate Christmas, on christmas Eve. And then me, and my little brother, and my parents do our own christmas, christmas day. So it’s always a busy time for us.
I am re-posting this blog post I posted soon after I started my blog. (Whew, that was a lot of posting words.) This is still one of my absolute all favorite hot cocoa! I just want to share this, with all of you! It’s a perfect holiday treat!
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 sweetener I’m using for this recipe is a sweetener from Trim Healthy Mama, called Gentle sweet. We usually buy this sweetener from their website, it costs about $10 for a sixteen ounce bag. If you don’t have this sweetener, 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!
