Sugar-Free Cocoa Mix

Happy New Year!  I hope the beginning of the year finds you well and ready to enjoy the moments that 2013 has to offer.  My resolutions?  I'm going to attempt to not drink pop (that's "soda" for you non-West Virginians) and to  read my Bible every day.  I've found that the simpler and more concise I make my little deals with myself, the better it goes!  When I was younger I used to make a list of 10...way too many resolutions for me to remember them on a daily basis.  I figure that if I make 2 and keep them that I'm doing better-than-usual!  I've also ruled out impossible life-changing attempts over the years...like giving up chocolate.  That's just a crazy idea...my birthday's in January;  having no chocolate just isn't going to work!  So how about some chocolaty cocoa with no sugar?

Sugar-Free Cocoa
1 1/2 C Splenda
1 C powdered non-dairy creamer
1 C dry milk powder
3/4 C cocoa powder (unsweetened)

In a blender or food processor, combine all dry ingredients.  Mix well and store in an air-tight container.  To serve, put 2 to 3 TBSP in a mug filled with hot water and stir.
2 TBSP = 51 calories;  1.8 grams fat;  1 mg cholesterol

Favorite Christmas Gift:  Having family here !


Adventures in Texas:  I bought some ornaments at half price in Macy's at the Dallas Galleria;  cowboy hats, spurs, boots, stars...great on the tree!
