So I made this hot chocolate mix with Truvia since I try to avoid sugar, but you can make it with whatever sweetener you choose. I added corn starch to it so that the drink would have a little body to it rather than be thin and watery. What this means is that you can’t just add hot water to it directly from a kettle or boiling water tap, you need to cook it for a tiny bit. Trust me, it’s worth the extra 30 seconds. It makes a good, thick, deep chocolatey drink that my family is loving. I might try to add a little protein powder in mine later today and see how it works.
Add cinnamon or chile powder to suit your tastes. In this recipe I can taste the cinnamon, but not the chile as much. I may need to add some more for myself, but I left it as it was for my son who doesn’t tolerate a lot of spice.
Mexican Hot Chocolate Mix
- Mix everything with a whisk. Yup, that's the whole recipe.
- When you're ready to use this, place 2-3 tablespoon of mix in a cup, add hot water and then microwave for 30 seconds. Stir well to let it thicken.
- If using tap water, microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
