Macro-Friendly Hot Chocolate

It's FINALLY cooling down here and I couldn't be more thrilled. It's going to be in the 60's this weekend and all next week like 40-45 in the morning, that's my kind of weather! I swear people think I'm crazy when I tell them I hate summer. 70+ degree weather and me just don't mix. 

Anyway, yesterday morning it was cold and rainy so of course I broke out the hot chocolate! I had to get some blood work done, and my luck it had to be fasted. Ya'll should've seen my face when the doctor told me to fast #hangryproblems. So I did what any fit chick would do and scheduled the earliest possible appointment so that I could eat faster lololol. I got it done at 7:30am and was home/eating before 8am. 

I decided to whip up this hot chocolate along with my overnight oats. 

And speaking of overnight oats...

OKAY so back to the original reason that I started writing this post! 

I got the idea from one of my teammates to add Walden Farms chocolate sauce to my hot chocolate and OH MY GOODNESS. It's a game changer. For real, it made all the difference. I took my original hot chocolate recipe and made some tweaks. 

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1-2 packets of stevia
1 tsp vanilla extract 
1 tbsp Walden Farms chocolate sauce
dash of cocoa powder

First, take just the almond milk and heat it for about 1-1/2 minutes. Then, add in the rest of the ingredients and heat for another 30 seconds. Voila! THE best hot chocolate ever, and the macros are pretty amazing. 

Enjoy, loves!
