Healthy, Easy Hot Chocolate Recipe

Hot chocolate is perfect for this season. It's perfect for relaxing on a cold winter night. However, the regular mixes or store bought hot chocolates have a ton of sugar in them. Even though it may be comforting and delicious, it doesn't help when you are trying to avoid extra holiday weight. I wanted to share an easy to make hot chocolate recipe that is low calorie! Just a note, this does not have all the sugar we may be used to with hot chocolate. It may taste different for those that are looking for a sweet hot chocolate since it's not very sweet. But it's very yummy!

You will need:
-Almond Breeze Almond Milk (this one is the Original, which has a bit of sugar)
-Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
-Ground Cinnamon

Pour Almond milk and put in microwave for 30 seconds. Add 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder and stir until the powder dissolves. Add a pinch of cinnamon for taste.

Add your favorite mug!

The almond milk has less calories than regular milk and the cocoa powder is healthier than the typical sugar filled hot chocolate mixes. The cinnamon adds a nice spice and flavor!

Do you love hot chocolate around this time of year? What is your favorite hot chocolate recipe?
