I hope you all are sitting down for this one….a Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate Recipe that’s diet friendly?!?!?
That’s right. And oh my word is it good.
I got the idea for this while in line at Starbucks, drooling over their delicious fall drink menu. As soon as I got home, I put my daughter in her highchair and went to work whipping up this absolutely wonderful, low calorie hot chocolate recipe.
My Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate was so rich, creamy, and decadent, and yet just a handful of points. The creamer and the vanilla sweeten the drink a lot, so there was no need to add any additional sweetener. Also, if you want to go even LOWER on the points with this, just substitute the milk for Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk.
I tried it both ways and preferred it with the milk, but it was quite good with the Almond Breeze too. This is a perfect hot drink for a cold day…and it’s a great idea to have in place of a dessert! Seriously people, it’s that good. Make it…NOW!
