So the time has come, and my cravings have switched from fall comfort foods, to those drinks you just love to sit around a fireplace with and sip on under a blanket while the christmas decorations are up in the house
I haven't had a chance yet, but I've heard mostly good things about swiss miss diet hot chocolate which is only 25 cals in the packet.
Another big favorite of mine is egg nog. Any one know of a good low sugar brand? This is especially important because I cannot limit myself to the little 1/2 cup serving of the stuff and would like an actual cup when i have it.
Another, possibly genius, idea I had came from when I was home with my parents over thanksgiving. I normally drink very good coffee, and drink it black. My parents drink flavored folgers and then add skim milk and sugar free caramel syrup. I didn't like this for my actual morning coffee, but it fit the fireside warmth bit perfectly.
Does anyone know of a decaf brand that doesn't taste like crap? I'm thinking the flavoring can help mask it a bit, and then if I add sugar free peppermint syrup and skim milk to it, it would be a nice low cal warm, sweet drink.
Also, is there any way to get that kind of thickness in a drink without adding a bunch of cream or whole milk to something? Pretty sure that's not possible, but just curious.
