Although I consider myself to be a pretty healthy eater on most days, I definitely find myself craving something sweet on occasion. Like most women, when chocolate calls to me, nothing else will do! Therefore, I've tried to reign it in with something satisfying, sweet, long lasting, but waist friendly. Swiss Miss Diet Hot Coca Mix does the trick for those late night cravings! With only 25 calories per serving, it is chocolaty, creamy and indulgent. An added bonus: since it is a hot beverage, it takes time to sip, so by the time I am finished, my chocolate craving has been satisfied.
Each envelope of Swiss Miss Diet Hot Cocoa makes a hot steeping cup that also provides 2 grams of protein and only 4 grams of total carbohydrates. The sweeteners used are Splenda and acesulfame K. While not as rich as non-diet hot cocoa, it is a wonderful substitution for those counting calories. In order to amp up the nutrition, I sometimes add it to 8 ounces of skim milk instead of hot water. This increases the calorie count, but it is a satisfying treat that will leave you quiet satiated.
Although diet hot cocoa is pricey compared to regular hot cocoa, I found this product quite reasonably priced at Target at $1.77 for an 8 count package. This mix is perfect for chocolate emergencies when you're watching you're weight
