    Sugar-free is not necessarily carb-free...

    So, I indulged. I wanted to treat myself and given the cold weather, I wanted a hot cocoa. So I went to Dazbog and got myself a sugar-free hot cocoa. Yay.

    Then, after enjoying myself thoroughly, I looked up the carb load....half of my daily allotment for a small. For a small!

    I'm gonna have to keep myself very low carb tomorrow to make up for this atrocity.

    Curses!

    Of course...there are sugar-free pastries. No way in hell they're carb-free.

    I'd think having regular hot cocoa with sugar would probably be healthier than the sugar-free chemicals that are typically used, no?

    You could make your own healthy hot cocoa with heavy cream or coconut milk, raw cacao powder, a little raw honey, 100% pure vanilla extract, cinnamon perhaps.

    I see that has been suggested above as well!

    Thank you for the support and the great hot cocoa recipes! I will have to try them out. Try them all out.
