So, check out this easy recipe for Creamy Hot Chocolate by YouTuber Emma’s Goodies.
- ⅓ cup – Skimmed milk
- Sweetener of your choice
- Pinch of Salt
- ⅓ cup – Water
- 1.5 tbsp – Cocoa powder
- ¼ tsp – Instant coffee powder
- 1 tsp – cornstarch
In a thick pan set on low-medium heat, add 2 tbsp cocoa powder along with and then ¼ tsp of coffee powder. You can add a bit more of coffee powder if you like, as it is known to enhance the taste of the chocolate.
Next, add 1 tsp cornstarch to make the mixture thick and mix all the dry ingredients. To this, add milk (almond or skimmed) and keep whisking slowly, ensuring there are no powder lumps. Now slowly add water. Don’t worry, you won’t taste the water as the cornstarch will thicken the mixture.
Once it begins boiling, add a sweetener of your choice. Since you want it to be healthy, we suggest a sugar-free sweetener. Boil it for a minute while continuously stirring it and then turn off the heat.
Serve hot with marshmallows and enjoy!
