Eat Clean Hot Chocolate

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup/ 240 ml low-fat milk of your choice--rice, almond, soy
  • 1 Tbsp/ 15 ml raw cocoa powder-- a good dark chocolate powder is best
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 Tbsp/ 15 ml agave nectar or 1 tbsp. organic sugar cane crystals
1. Place milk and cocoa powder in a saucepan and heat over a medium flame on the stove. Stir often and make sure it doesn't scald.

2. Meanwhile in a large bowl briefly whisk remaining ingredients together.

3. Remove saucepan from stove. Slowly pour the hot mixture into the egg/agave nectar mixture, whisking the whole time or blending with an electric hand blender, until slightly foamy. Pour into your favorite mug and drink steaming hot! Add a little cold milk or an ice cube to cool it down for kids.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
