Boozy Skinny Hot Chocolate

2 weeks ago I pulled my parka out of the closet and haven’t looked back since. My crock-pot now has a home on my counter top and I drink tea instead of water. We even got our first inch of snow last week….winter.

All this winterness has got me in a different recipe creation mindset. No more ice cream, popsicles, and overnight oats. More like hot dish, crock-pot recipes and Boozy Skinny Hot Chocolate.

Lighten up the classic hot cocoa recipe with almond milk and stevia for this delicious Skinny Hot Chocolate that's paleo and vegan, too!  

Yes, I said booze.

It has the same delicious hot chocolate flavor, with a kick of amaretto and the best part is…it’s not even 100 calories.

I think that deserves a #winning

Boozy Skinny Hot Chocolate 

There was a time when alcohol just wasn’t part of my life. Thankfully, I am much more comfortable in my own skin and amaretto tastes really good. 

Boozy Skinny Hot Chocolate
  1. Place all ingredients in a small sauce pan and turn heat to medium/high. Using a whisk or spoon, continuously whisk cocoa powder into the almond milk until fully combined. Bring milk to a simmer and take off heat. Serve with nonfat cool whip, a sprinkle of cinnamon, or my healthy chocolate sauce (see link below).

Serving size: 2

I topped my hot chocolate with some nonfat coo whip and my healthy chocolate sauce which can be found HERE

If you’re not into the booze thing, omit it! You’ll still get an amazing skinny hot chocolate that’s even less calories… 30 calories to be exact!

    They may not be healthy, but they’re great! …. Amaretto Apricot Chews. It’s our “gotta-have” Christmas cookie.

  4. Camille says

    Yum! This looks like it could be the go to drink to survive my first winter in Alaska. For holiday cookies, traditional sugar cookies with frosting or Russian tea cakes are two of my favorites :)

    Hopefully my hot cocoa cravings will kick in soon – I’m still in love with my cold/iced chai tea lattes; I’m not ready to give them up! I’m sure once the freezing temps kick in in Duluth, it will be all the rage. Hello to another MN blogger! =)
