This is a healthier hot chocolate made with less sugar and low-fat milk.

On a cold and snowy night in DC, my friend, Doreen, made this lovely drink for me while I was staying at her home.

It’s a hot treat that feels like a splurge,

but you can drink it guilt-free!


LuciFit Hot Chocolate

Recipe for One Serving:

1 Cup Low-Fat Milk

1 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa

1 tsp Sugar

Few Drops Peppermint Extract


Heat the milk in a pot over low heat on the stove. While heating stir in cocoa, sugar, and then peppermint. Stir with a wire whisk for best results. (You can also add a shot of coffee for a midday pick-me-up). Pour into your favorite cup, then sip away and enjoy the season!


Compare the average hot chocolate mix with low-fat milk:

230  cal

180 cal from sugar (11g)

This Recipe:

115 cal

15 cal from sugar (4g)


This drink also supplies a healthy serving of Calcium, Vitamin D (if enriched), Casein and Whey proteins, and some carbohydrate.

I usually use goat’s milk because it’s easier for me to digest than cow’s milk. Both work well!
