Even though it’s summer, here in the mountains I crave at least one cup of hot cocoa daily. Let’s face it…anyway to get some chocolate into my world is a great thing!

Skinny Hot Cocoa requires only 4 things…any kinda milk, cocoa powder, H2O & your favorite sweetener.

Why am I posting something soooooo simple? So you can avoid those little packages of processed cocoa powders.

Drink up!

Nothing like a steamy cup of hot cocoa when you roll out of bed.

Sometimes I find it crazy fun to post the most simple of recipes. But then I realize that these are my go-to daily creations and they need to be blogged.

I love the taste of good chocolate. Packaged hot cocoa doesn’t do it for me…it’s too sweet & I can hardly taste the cocoa.

Cocoa powder is super fun to shoot with a macro lens.

You might need to experiment with unsweetened cocoa powders to find the one you like the most.

I usually reach for Trader Joe’s, Scharffen Berger, Ghiradelli and Hershey’s. I like fancy ones too.

If you want chocolate milk…simply add some ice.

Have a great weekend & enjoy your chocolatey sips!
