100 Calorie Homemade Hot or Iced Cocoa Recipe

60 Flares 60 Flares ×

This morning it was 50 degrees out and my daughter was supposed to meet at the park for preschool for a special picnic lunch.  We had 90+ degree temps last weekend and now we are freezing.

As I packed a lunch for us, I immediately had the urge for hot chocolate knowing I was going to sit outside in the cold and wind, so I did what I always do when I have a bright idea and need to implement it.

I “Google it”.

And I came across a pretty quick and easy recipe to make my own homemade hot chocolate.

And it worked.

And it’s only about 100 calories.

And it tasted pretty darn good.

Now, I know many of you are thinking I’m crazy, but I have a solution for those of you who have constant summer temps already.

Pour it over ice.

Instant iced chocolate.

100 calories and probably 1/10 of the cost of a fancy coffee shop drink.

Easy recipe with nothing artificial.
Recipe type: drink
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder (I used dark cocoa powder – yum)
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp Stevia in the Raw (or your other favorite sweetener)
  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract (make sure it doesn’t have added corn syrup)
  • 1 cup skim milk
  1. Mix or whisk cocoa powder, vanilla, stevia and 3 tbsp water together over low heat in a saucepan until blended thoroughly.
  2. Slowly add milk and stir until thoroughly warmed.
For iced cocoa, fill a glass full of ice and pour hot mixture over it. It should cool immediately. Add more ice as needed.
