Low Calorie and Low Carb PB Hot Cocoa

With the cooler weather coming in (hopefully soon here in Texas!), I thought I’d share one of my favorite hot drinks.
It cures a sweet tooth without any diet repercussions lol.

PB Hot Cocoa

Warm your almond milk to just below simmering, you need it hot.

Mix the PB2, cocoa powder and sweetener, then add about 1/3 of the hot almond milk. Whisk well, then add the remaining almond milk once the powders are dissolved.

That’s it! Nearly instant sweet tooth, comfort food, chocolate fix gratification!

You can, of course, use whatever milk product fits into your diet plan. Or add 1T heavy cream (50 cals) to this one to give it a richer flavor.

One odd addition that sounds weird but takes the taste to a new level: add in 2tsp Ghee or salted butter and melt that into the almond milk. Use a frother to incorporate it.
