It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
The temperature is starting to cool off outside, Christmas music is on the radio, your favorite Holiday movies are starting to show on the TV, Christmas Trees are starting to be lit… what is the perfect drink to make everything complete?
I love a good hot chocolate… but there is one thing that I try to avoid and that’s sugar – yuck!
What if you could enjoy your favorite holiday drink without the guilt?
My sister came up with this recipe and I just had to share it with you! Some of the ingredients may make you go “huh??” but they all make it the perfect texture.
Traditional hot chocolate recipes that I found used sweetened condensed milk – Wow, that’s a lot of sugar!! And this recipe uses Truvia (or stevia of your choice).
Why use stevia? This is my sweetener of choice, but if you have another favorite – go ahead and use it!
We shared this with our girls too and they loved it! I love showing them that they can have a treat without all the sugar.
Without any more wait… The Recipe!
