Personally, I prefer my hot chocolate to be mixed with soy milk or water, as I am lactose intolerant. It doesn’t make the hot chocolate taste any different or any less yummy!
What I love most about this hot chocolate is that I can enjoy it without feeling guilty about enjoying it. There’s 25 calories per serving and 2g of sugar. In a regular hot chocolate, there is 100+ calories per serving and 19g of sugar in it. Which to me, is a huge deal! It’s nice to know that there is alternatives to hot chocolate in the winter time when all I want to do is cuddle up with a blanket and a movie.
The one downfall of this product I will say though - is that it is hard to get it to mix up all the way! Most hot chocolate is hard to mix up, but this takes some serious patience to mix it up completely. Though, the end result is definitely worth it!
I would suggest this if you haven’t tried it and are on a plan such as weight watchers and still want to enjoy hot chocolate! Or you want a low calorie version of it!
In any event, I liked this stuff so much that I even tried mixing 2 flavors: i.e., milk choc and the rich - still good. Needless to say, I am back here to order more (and put it on Subscribe and Save) as the colder weather is coming and this is going to be a nice break from all the tea I drink.
Pour envelope (or two) into a cup/mug. (One envelope requires only 3/4 Cup hot water, so if you're looking for an adult-sized coffee mug full, use two envelopes and double the water). I don't even measure the water anymore: just two envelopes and fill my mug about 3/4" from the top. I like using a whisk to mix it up because it creates a bit of froth on the top that sticks to my upper lip and brings back great childhood memories!
I used to be a Starbucks junkie, and before my dietary turnaround, I downed my grande (16 ounces) Starbucks Signature Hot chocolate as if it was water. When I became aware that my formerly innocent, non-fat, no-whip, winter refreshment still had 410 calories and 42 grammes of sugar in it, I began my search for a better alternative. In discovering Swiss Miss Diet Hot Cocoa Mix, now I am able to get an even greater satisfaction with the 25-calorie miracle packet that transforms plain water into my favourite treat.
Without the addition of milk, it is essential to add a large spoonful of Splenda to reach optimal taste. When I first tried the mix without artificial sweeteners and mixed with only water, I was very disappointed at how bland the flavour was. However, now, with a heap of Splenda, a Swiss Miss Diet Hot Cocoa Mix packet, and a mug of steaming water, I claim victory in taste and nutrition.
I began buying Swiss Miss Diet Hot Cocoa when I found it at my local grocery store, Pavilions. It would cost around $5.25 a box, and with six packets in each box, around 88 cents per packet. At Amazon.com, I am able to purchase the mix in bulk and in purchasing a case of six boxes, each packet costs me 31 cents, saving me 57 cents per packet.
Some reviewers have claimed that the hot cocoa clumps up in mixing it with water. This has occurred to me several times when my water was too hot. Avoid boiling hot water, and stir as you pour the water into the mug with the hot cocoa mix and Splenda already in it, and you should no longer encounter this problem.
I have experimented with using sugar-free chocolate syrups to make hot cocoa instead of using a mix and have been highly disappointed with the results. The syrup does not mix as well, and the texture of the hot cocoa is too thin, especially if just mixing the syrup in water.
After a long day of studying in the library and a snowy trek back to my dorm, a mug of Swiss Miss Diet Hot Cocoa with a heap of Splenda and a spritz of cinnamon is my always highly anticipated reward.
