Skinny Frozen Hot Chocolate Recipe
If you’re anything like me, you have families that love to eat and drink super high calorie foods during the holidays. I’m guessing it’s like this for everyone, really, but it doesn’t have to be! I definitely indulge in some foods that I only get during the holiday season like my mom’s fudge pie or my Mammaw’s ham gravy, but there are some easy ways to make great holiday treats a little more figure friendly.
Take this frozen hot chocolate.
A normal recipe would set you back hundreds of calories, but you can slim this down easily by swapping in skim milk and adding a touch of rich unsweetened cocoa powder for even more intense chocolate flavor.
My favorite way to have this is to add in a drop or two of peppermint or coconut extract, but it’s just as delicious without it, too. And with the warm December we’ve been having in Virginia, a frozen hot chocolate has been my go-to treat this year.
1 1/2 cups fat free milk
1 cup ice
4 tbsp Ovaltine Rich Chocolate (or Chocolate Malt flavor)
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp fat free whipped topping (optional)
drop of peppermint extract (optional)
Pour the milk and ice into your blender. Add in the ovaltine, cocoa powder, and whipped topping (optional – you could also leave this for the top instead).
Blend 3-4 minutes until the ice is completely chopped and the mixture is thick and icy.
Pour into two glasses, and serve immediately.
