I've shared this with friends, but I'm about to fix a cup for myself and thought I'd pass it around. My mother-in-law got this recipe out of GuidePosts a few years ago. I slimmed it down by using almond milk and sweetener.
1 c Silk Pure Almond Milk, 30 cal
1 T baker's cocoa
1 t vanilla (can also use peppermint or almond flavoring)
1 t instant coffee
Splenda or Stevia to taste
cinnamon & nutmeg (or pumpkin pie spice)
Heat milk, add the rest, stir, and enjoy a 50 calorie treat.
Edit: I should add that baker's cocoa takes frequent stirring. I love it because it's not sweet, so you control the sweetness by what you add. And OOPS. It's Silk Pure Almond that's 30 cal. Almond Breeze is 40, still a good option.
