A GOOD DAY FOR A CUP OF HOT COCOA?

Posted May 28 2009 12:23am

Have you discovered Wondercocoa™? It has half the carbs of regular Dutched cocoa and almost no caffeine. (It also has no fat, but since cocoa butter is one of the good fats, that's not especially important.)

HOT COCOA RECIPE
One serving of Wondercocoa has 1 net gram of carbohydrate, no fat, and it is 99.7 % caffeine free. The label states that the fat is removed by mechanical pressing. If you use Wondercocoa™ and liquid sucralose, a rich, creamy, cup of cocoa is almost a freebie !

1 tablespoon Wondercocoa™ or other Dutched cocoa
Liquid sucralose or other sugar substitute equal to 2 teaspoons of sugar
⅓ cup heavy cream
⅔ cup of water
A few grains of salt
A dash of cinnamon
¼ teaspoon sugar-free vanilla extract

Combine the cocoa with a small amount of the water and mix to a smooth paste in a microwave-safe cup or a small saucepan. Stir in the rest of the water, the cream, sweetener, and salt. Heat in the microwave for about 1½ minutes or on cooktop until hot. Stir in vanilla. Top with sugar-free Whipped Cream and dust with cocoa powder or sprinkle with orange zest, if desired.

Makes 1 serving of 1 cup.
Per serving—Net Carbohydrate: with Wondercocoa™, 1 net gram; with other brands of Dutch cocoa, 2 net grams

Variations:
Replace cream and water with Hood Calorie Countdown Milk® (add 3 net grams of carbohydrate for a total of 4 per serving).

If you prefer marshmallows in your cocoa, try La Nouba® sugar-free marshmallows. They are sweetened with maltitol, but they taste and melt like regular marshmallows.
