Rich and Creamy Hot Chocolate


1      rounded tablespoon cocoa powder

2      tablespoons Splenda granulated sweetener (or 3 packets)

1/2  teaspoon cornstarch

3/4  cup low-fat milk

1/4  teaspoon vanilla (optional)


  1. Combine the cocoa powder, sweetener, and cornstarch in a microwave-safe mug.  (Use a standard 8-ounce mug or larger as drink needs to bubble up to thicken)

  2. Add 1/4 cup of milk to the dry ingredients and mix with a whisk until smooth.  Continue stirring while pouring in the remaining milk.

  3. Place mug in microwave and heat on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or until you see the hot chocolate bubble up to the rim of the cup.  Immediately turn off microwave and stir hot chocolate, add vanilla if desired, and return to microwave for 15 seconds longer.  Remove, stir, and enjoy.
