This evening we decided to make iced hot chocolate. It was absolutely delicious, but also not very healthy due to the cocoa powder, sugar, and chocolate chips.
I try to eat as healthy as possible at all times but sometimes I have to give myself a break and just say “screw it, I’m going to eat this junk food and I’m going to enjoy it.”
I don’t need to do this all the time. Hell, I probably only cave in to my cravings maybe once or twice a month, if that, but it’s a liberating feeling to do what I want to do and to make that decision that I’m not going to care what anyone thinks about it.
You should try it sometime.
And if you’d like to try it with iced hot chocolate, here’s the recipe:
- 1 can full fat coconut milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 7 oz. hot chocolate mix (about 5 packets)
- 4 cups of ice
- 2 tbs. organic cane sugar
- 1 cup coconut cream
- Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top
All you have to do is throw the milk, water, and cocoa powder into a blender. Then add the ice and blend some more. Use an electric hand mixer to make a whipped topping out of the coconut cream and cane sugar, then pour the chocolate into a glass and top with the whipped topping and a few chocolate chips.
