Hot Chocolate with Almond Milk

Do you struggle to live a healthy lifestyle?  It can be so difficult, especially during the fall months when so many fun holidays, festivities, and social events offer great foods that you can’t help but over indulge.  And if you’re thinking about starting a weight management program at this time, it can be nearly impossible!

But regardless of your lifestyle and diet, you can always take small baby steps toward healthier living!  Just make a few simple changes:  Choose a salad over a burger, make a sandwich at home instead of grabbing fast food, and drink an extra bottle of water a day and one less soda or coffee.

Products like Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk®  make it easy to make a small change toward healthier living and better weight management.

 

Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk

Almond milk and other non dairy milks are very popular right now, but Orgain’s lightly sweetened vanilla has less than half of the sugar of the leading brands’ sweetened vanilla almond milk.  It’s also packed with plant based calcium and vitamin D and is vegan, dairy free, gluten free, soy free, non-GMO.  And it offers 10 times the protein of other leading almond milks!

Today I’m here to show you that Almond Milk is not just for drinking alone.  It’s also a great ingredient drinks, including coffee drinks and smoothies, and you can even cook with it!

I recently tried Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk® in a hot chocolate recipe.  This is a rich, dark hot chocolate, but you can add more sugar as needed, as well as extra milk to water to thin the recipe, if needed.

Hot Chocolate Ingredients

And the best part is, after you get your Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk®, you just need a few simple ingredients and a few minutes to make a little cup of hot chocolate!

Ingredients:

1 cup Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk®

1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1.5 Tbsp semisweet chocolate chips

1 Tbsp sugar (you can also an artifical sweetener or raw sugar)

Optional: Marshmallows or whipped cream

Optional: Tablespoon of milk (regular, 2% or skim) OR water, if you like a thinner hot chocolate

Directions:

Add one cup of Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk® to a saucepan over medium heat.

Once milk is warm, add cocoa powder, chocolate and sweetener. Then whisk together, stirring continuously to prevent sticking. Lower the heat as needed.

Continue to cook until ingredients are well combined and mixture is heated through.

Taste. Then add additional sugar as needed. You can add a little milk or water if the hot chocolate is too hot.

Pour into a cup and and garnish with marshmallows or whipped cream. Enjoy!

If you prefer, you can also microwave this recipe in lieu of using the stove.
