Low Carb Hot Cocoa Recipe


Looking for a recipe for low carb hot cocoa? Hot chocolate is perfect for chasing away the chills, and this one is sugar-free!

Ingredients:
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 packets Splenda
1 Tbsp cocoa
1/8 tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients then microwave for 2 minutes or until hot. Enjoy!

Servings: 1
Carbs per serving: 2g

Note that every one of us has a different theory of the ideal cocoa, how thick or thin it should be, how sweet. You can add a dash of cinnamon to the cocoa, or a dash of coffee. Be sure to experiment and find out what exact amounts work best for your own palate!

It's amazing to think about it, but chocolate was unknown to European culture until the explorers went over to South America in the 1500s. They brought back this amazing substance, chocolate, which the locals had been drinking as a bitter brew. The Mayans didn't have sugar. It's one of those cases where it took multiple cultures to get something just right. The Europeans had the sugar, added it into the cocoa, and voila! Suddenly there was a treat that everybody craved.

At first chocolate was quite an exclusive thing, of course. It had to travel an enormous distance to get to Europe. Little kids wouldn't be guzzling hot cocoa by the gallon :). However, we are lucky enough to live in a modern time where hot cocoa can be enjoyed by all. Mix up a batch and toast!
