I always thought the concept of a frozen hot chocolate was strange. How can something be frozen and hot at the same time? Last summer I came across this recipe for low calorie frozen hot chocolate by Joy Bauer. It is only a 150 calories and almost no fat. Who can beat that? It is so good! My kids consider it a special treat, and it’s not too unhealthy to have every now and then.
Just three ingredients are needed. That’s it! Unless of course you want to add a dollop of whip cream!
Look At those yummy swirls of chocolate syrup!
