Skinny Hot Chocolate

Pin It
Hi there!
Sorry I haven't been posting as much lately, but I've been trying to be good and not make too many sweets.
I've been tracking weight watcher points and my friend Bekka and I started the Couch to 5K plan.
We are on week two - yay us!

Swim suit season is just around the corner, so we have to stay focused!

I would love to hear any tips or advice you might have about either plan, so please comment or send me an email.  We need all the help we can get :)

I've been pretty good about staying within my WW points plus, but I need something sweet after dinner.
And it has to be chocolate. 

It has been really cold aroud here the past few days, so this Skinny Hot Chocolate hit the spot tonight!

I've been trying to give up as many artificial sweeteners as I can, besides my beloved Diet Coke, so I been using stevia.  It's a little pricey, but healthier for sure.  I tried it in this recipe and really like it.

I can't wait to hear your WW and/or running tips!
Happy Monday!

  3. Mmm, that sounds great. Does almond milk have a taste like amaretto or almond extract? Where do you find it?
