Even with my trimmed down subs this was outstanding. Here's the rundown: for the coconut milk I used Fat Free Coconut Milk (For Recipes) and for the sweetened condensed milk I used Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitution. I saved so much fat and calories by using the subs that I didn't have a second thought about using chocolate whipped cream and 1/10 of an ounce of chocolate shavings. Oh happy day :D

super delicious. a bit too sweet for my taste, i might add an extra cup of milk next time. we froze the leftovers and it made delicious ice cream as well.

A lovely hot chocolate. I used Coconut Milk Substitute. I used the 3 tablespoons of cocoa. Next time I may increase the cocoa to 4 tablespoons. As I am sitting here enjoying the cocoa, I am thinking of some wonderful variations...coconut rum or add some almond extract to create an Almond Joy cocoa. Delicious! Made for PRMR.
