To embark on your sugar-free hot chocolate journey, gather the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 2 tablespoons of Skinny Mixes Sugar Free Mocha Syrup 
  • 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • Whipped cream (sugar-free, if desired) for topping
  • Optional: sugar-free marshmallows or sprinkles for garnish

Step 1: Heat the Milk

Pour the unsweetened almond milk into a small saucepan and place it over medium heat. Slowly warm the milk, stirring occasionally, until it reaches a gentle simmer. Be careful not to bring it to a boil.

Step 2: Add the Chocolate Syrup and Cocoa Powder

Once the milk is heated, whisk in the Skinny Mixes Sugar Free Mocha Syrup, unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Continue whisking until the syrup and cocoa powder are fully dissolved and well incorporated into the milk.

Step 3: Blend and Simmer

For an extra smooth and velvety texture, you can use an immersion blender or transfer the mixture to a blender and blend until frothy. This step is optional but highly recommended for a delightful drinking experience.

After blending, reduce the heat to low and let the hot chocolate simmer gently for a few minutes. This allows the flavors to meld together beautifully.

Step 4: Pour and Serve

Once your hot chocolate reaches your desired temperature and consistency, it's time to pour it into your favorite mug. Top it off with a dollop of sugar-free whipped cream for an extra touch of indulgence.

Optional: Feel free to garnish your hot chocolate with sugar-free marshmallows or sprinkles to add a festive touch. You can get creative and experiment with different toppings, such as a sprinkle of cinnamon or a drizzle of sugar-free caramel syrup.

Step 5: Sip and Savor

Grab a cozy spot, wrap your hands around the mug, and take a moment to appreciate the aroma of your homemade sugar-free hot chocolate. Slowly sip and savor the rich, chocolatey goodness that Skinny Mixes' Sugar Free Mocha Syrup brings to every delicious cup.
