Skinny Magic Bullet Cocoa Recipe for Dieters
Written by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites
Oh my, delicious diet smart cocoa for your weight loss plan.
Lift your Diet Spirits with this frothy cup of rich, delicious hot cocoa! Top with a few mini marshmallows for an even creamier effect.
This recipe contains about 75 calories per cup - about one-half the calories as traditional full-bodied cocoa that often contributes to full-bodied bodies.
Keep in mind that you can always reduce calories in milk-based beverages and drinks by choosing the lower fat milk. Your best choice based on the fewest calories in fat free or skim varieties of milk - for about 80 calories per eight-ounce serving.
In our skinny cocoa recipe we've reduced this ingredient to 3/4 cup which again, will slightly reduce caloric value.
If you wish to enjoy a full eight-ounce serving, then please do. Your bones will thank you and you may even have a whiter smile in return.
Magic Bullet Recipe Skinny Cocoa
You will need the following ingredients:
3/4 cup of skim milk (60 calories)
1 teaspoon of Hershey's cocoa powder
Splenda - add to suit your personal level of sweetness. You can use granulated sugar for a few more calories if you wish.
Dash of Vanilla extract.
How to Prepare Our Skinny Cocoa Recipe
Pour skim milk into the tall Magic Bullet container. The reason that you want to use the tall container is because milk expands as it cooks and the tall container will ensure that you don't end up with a frothy clean up.
Pop container into the microwave and heat for about 1 minute - or until hot but not boiling.
While milk is warming, mix powdered cocoa in a Tablespoon of warm water and stir until smooth and cocoa is completely dissolved.
On this note, when you're seized with a Sweet Tooth moment but don't want to ruin your weight loss plan then this is a great little mixture to help satisfy the Sweet Tooth for minimal calories.
Next, remove heated milk and stir in Splenda, extract and cocoa mix.
Using the whipping blade, place container onto the Magic Bullet base and whip until frothy - about 10 seconds. Remove top from the container and then return it to microwave for just a few seconds - until cocoa is your preferred warmth.
Pour into a warm mug. Cocoa will be very frothy and creamy. Sprinkle with a few mini marshmallows if desired for additional creaminess. Grab a cozy blanket or a wrap. Settle in front of the fireplace or a snuggy warm spot with a good book or watch a good movie.
