What child does not love Chocolate milk?
If your child is like my girls, they love it!
But, Mom (me) has not been letting them have any lately...
Since I became a Trim Healthy Mama, sugar has been
out for the family. We are becoming healthy!
I have seen the difference healthy eating has done to
us and the benefits are incredible.
Being healthy does not have to mean that we have to do without!
My girls have begged and begged for Chocolate Syrup for milk.
How can I deny them?
So, I decided to play around and came up with
this Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup.
Here's what you'll need:
3 cups of water
1 cup coco powder
4 teaspoons of NuNatural Stevia Powder (or stevia to taste)
1 Tablespoon of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of glucomannan
dash of salt
Place 2 cups of water into a sauce pan, add coco powder, stevia, vanilla and a dash of salt. Place on stove and heat. Whisk the whole time to dissolve the coco powder and other ingredients.
While that is coming to a boil, place 1 cup of water in a dish with the glucomannan. Stir the glucomannan until it is dissolved.
* The water and glucomannan with become gelled. This is ok, since you will add it into the boiling coco mix while it is boiling.
Boil Coco mix for three minutes. Remove from stove. Slowly add in your glucomannan water. Keep whisking.. other wise it will start to clump... yuck!
I add a little glucomannan water, whisk until it is incorporated than repeat the process until all has been added.
The correct consistency should look like this:
Cool and place in squeezable bottles.
My girls did not even let it cool down before they ran to the frig and
made them some chocolate milk!
That's what I call Success!
