Hey girls, I tried it and it's really good. It tastes just like regular hot chocolate. The only thing I would say is that it might go pretty quick. You're using 4 tablespoons in 8 oz hot water. But I will absolutely get this again!

I have a perfect body. I just pad it for protection.

No matter what your life is like make sure you have a perfect soundtrack for it.

I just got it today. I'll try it tomorrow and let you guys know how it tastes. The only thing that scares me is the 21 grams of fiber... Not sure how I'll react to that :-)

true, good way to put it. i don't think it's possible to eat 100% clean if we live busy lifestyles...but it's possible to make better choices. that cheesecake sounds delicious! my grandma just made me oatmeal blueberry muffins made with applesauce and whole wheat flour - can't wait to try them in the morning!

It might be a little more "clean" than not. I haven't tried it yet I should get soon and I'll let you know.

I find the term "clean" relative. Nothing we eat is 100% clean since our world is full of pollution/toxic chemicals that find their way everywhere.
I think what you describe is probably cleaner than commercial cocoa mix so you did great. . emoticon
Could you improve on it? Probably. You could use organic, non-dutched cocoa powder, you could use the leaves from a stevia plant or small amount of raw honey, you could use real vanilla. But it would still not be 100% clean.
My daughter made a lovely chocolate cheesecake tonight. We used ground organic raw almonds and pasture butter for the crust, cream cheese and pure baking chocolate with some Xylitol for sweetening for the topping. It was way better and healthier than most commercial cheesecakes and not nearly as sweet. The part that was the least perfect about it was the way I ate it: I could not resist a second piece. emoticon
To me it's all about learning more about food every day and doing better than I did the week before. I want to enjoy this process, not worry about when I'll be perfect. emoticon

I am trying really hard to break my coffee and diet soda habit so I've started making this new hot cocoa drink...I'm just not sure if it's "clean"...

1 tbs naturally unsweetened hersheys cocoa powder
a little salt
3 stevias
a splash of imitation vanilla flavoring

the only thing that is probably questionable is the imitation vanilla...does anyone know?
