Frozen Hot Chocolate Recipe – Low Carb & Sugar Free
I was blessed a few weeks ago to go to Serendipity 3 in New York City with my Great Aunt June and my daughter, who has June as her middle name in her honor. It was a lovely afternoon and I can finally cross visiting Serendipity and having one of their famous Frozen Hot Chocolates off my bucket list.
Unfortunately, about an hour after sharing one with my daughter I had an awful headache. I assume it was from the sugar. I became determined to make my own version at home that was sugar free.
Most of my recipes come from my need to take a food I love and make it Trim Healthy Mama friendly. Sometimes it is something I’ve eaten dozens of times and other times it’s something I’ve only had once but it was amazing enough to stick with me.
