Allegro Coffee just came out with a delicious dark hot drinking chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate to milk chocolate both because of its deep chocolatey taste as well as the health benefits like lowering blood pressure and protecting against heart disease. The flavor I bought is called Ghana 80, meaning that the Cocoa beans are from Ghana, and that it is very dark chocolate. Two tablespoons of the chocolate (1 serving) are 90 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 4 grams of fiber, making it *amazingly* only 1 weight watchers point. That means you can combine 2 tablespoons of this chocolate with 1 cup of almond milk, for a not-artificially-sweetened 130 calorie, 2 WW point hot chocolate. Yum! Or, you could mix it with a cup of water for a 1 point hot drink. Also, if you are really in the mood for a treat, you can top your drink with a bit of low calorie whipped topping.
In case you are wondering, this chocolate mix is not bitter at all. I think this company combined the intense dark chocolate cocoa (80%) with the perfect amount of sugar, making it quite tasty and delicious, without being bitter at all. Now the bad news, this stuff is not cheap. A whole box is about $9, although it contains 17 high-quality & filling servings.
PS. I wanted to point those of you experiencing cold winters to a really delicious extremely low calorie carrot soup recipe that I posted to my blog a few months ago. It is both delicious and healthy, as well as an excellent comfort food for a cold night.
