Frozen Hot Chocolate

Christmas is over & the new year has begun but I'm still trying to savor the season.

When I was growing up I always drank hot chocolate during the winter season. Every now and then I would mix the packet with cold milk and try to dissolve it...I never successfully accomplished that.

Another favorite of mine is to watch Christmas themed movies during the winter season. One of my favorite movies is Serendipity which just so happens to be tied to a Christmas theme.

Some argue that this isn't really a Christmas themed movie but...I beg to differ.

Ever since seeing the movie, I've wanted to fly to NY and devour all the delicious desserts in Serendipity 3. 

They're really famous for...

Their frozen hot chocolate

AND their $25,000 frozen haute chocolate with real gold edible flakes

I realized a couple years ago that it wouldn't be any time soon before I got to travel to NY and try out Serendipity.

Lets face it, I think I'm stuck in Texas forever.

So I decided to make my own frozen hot chocolate. The best part is that it's a skinny frozen hot chocolate, whereas Serendipity (though I love em and would love to try their stuff) it's full of calories that would take a week to torch with workouts.

Frozen Hot Chocolate

  • 1 1/2 cups fat free milk
  • 1 cup ice
  • 4 tbsp Ovaltine Rich Chocolate (or Chocolate Malt flavor. If anyone tries chocolate protein powder I'd love to know the results!)
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp fat free whipped topping (optional)
  • drop of peppermint extract (optional)

Pour the milk and ice into your blender. 
Add in the ovaltine, cocoa powder, and whipped topping (optional – you could also leave this for the top instead).
Blend 3-4 minutes until the ice is completely chopped and the mixture is thick and icy.
Pour into two glasses, and serve immediately.

Enjoy, my hungry little hearts!
