Winter is back.. we need hot cocoa, Healthy hot cocoa
Posted Mar 05 2010 8:01am
Yesterday it practically felt like summer, and this morning we woke up to a pile of snow! Of course being the slave driver I am, I sent my kids out at the crack of dawn to start shoveling. I hope we never buy a snow blower. (at least until the kids are grown, then we can buy one )
Once inside, they were ready for some hot cocoa! Here is our healthy version:
1 cup low fat milk
1 TBL Agave syrup (or honey) (if your kids are used to Nesquik or other sweeter cocoas, you may want to use 2 TBL
2 TBL cocoa powder (the 100% cocoa powder)
Mix together over the stove, or in the microwave until warm and dissolved.
If you love chocolate you will be happy to know a few things:
Although it contains a little saturated fat, research is showing it may not block LDL receptors the way saturated fat from animal sources do!!
