Sugar Free Frozen Hot Chocolate [Recipe]

It was a hot summer day (why on hot days do I tend to feel more hungry?) so  I  was in my kitchen looking for something sweet but not too unhealthy.  Looking around my pantry, it hit me–I remembered Serendipity’s frozen hot chocolate and realized I could easily re-create the New York treat with no sugar, unsweetened non-dairy milk and unsweetened cocoa  powder (all staples I keep in my kitchen). I lived on the East Coast for years and during that time the food did nothing but make me fat.  I’m in California now, so I like to keep it light and here is how you can, too.

Serving for 2

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 Heaping tablespoons of Valrhona or Scharffenberger or Ghiradhelli Cocoa Powder (not Dutch processed)

  • 2 1/2 Cups unsweetened Almond or Rice milk or milk of choice

  • 7-10 drops of Stevia (to your taste)

  • 1 cup of ice

Directions:

1. Place all the ingredients in a Vitamix or blender.

2. Blend until smooth and slushy.

3. Serve with a straw and enjoy!
