Healthy Homemade Hot Chocolate

Hey Food Finders!

OMG A giant mug of sweet, rich, and creamy hot chocolate during the chilly holiday season, and ALL winter long is one of life’s greatest pleasures! A few years ago, I came up with such a quick and simple recipe that satisfies my hot cocoa craving every time for only 1 SP and 35 calories for the entire mug including the whipped cream!


Guilt Free Indulgence

The next time you are craving hot chocolate there is NO reason to deprive yourself! You can have it every single day if you want to and still maintain your health goals.


The Facts

Recipe makes: 1 serving

1 Serving = 1 cups, 1 SP, and 35 calories



1 Cups Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Cashew Milk (the one with 25 calories per cup)

1 Tbsp pure unsweetened cocoa powder

1 packets of any sugar free sweetener

Fat Free Reddi Wip

Optional add-ins:

Peppermint extract

1 Mini candy cane (add 1 SP and 17 calories)


10 mini marshmallows (add 1 SP and 20 calories)

1 tsp drizzle of chocolate syrup (add 1 SP and 17 calories)

Dusting of cocoa powder or cinnamon on top



In a small pot on low-medium heat, whisk the vanilla cashew milk with the cocoa powder. When combined, add your sugar-free sweetener. Whisk until blended and the temperature you desire. This can also be done in the microwave. Pour into hearty mug and top with 2 tablespoons of Reddi Whip. That’s it! So simple, warm, rich, and comforting!

And for 0-1 point you can choose from some fun add-ins! If you want a peppermint hot cocoa just add a little peppermint extract, or a crushed mini candy cane atop your whipped cream.  If you’d like a mocha, just add a little coffee. Mini marshmallows are also a fun add-in, just be sure to adjust the points/cals! Just pick from the above delicious add-in ingredient list.
