Hot Chocolate?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where to get Hot Chocolate? Swiss Miss can't ABSOLUTELY promise me that their hot chocolate does not have CC. But I love hot cocoa and miss it greatly. Does anyone know a gluten free one that doesn't taste horrible???? I'm DESPRATE.

You might try Almond Breeze. I don't know if you can have dairy or not, but it has no dairy, casein, cholesterol, or gluten. It tastes wonderful and has quite a bit of calcium, vitamin D, and vitamin E. Trader Joe's sells it and so do some mainstream stores. It is in non-refrigerated boxes with the soy and rice milk. I sound like a commercial. but I love this stuff--it is my big treat.

Rather than all the chemicals in a store-mix, I use cocoa power, a sweetener (like sugar - I use agave), and milk (or a milk substitute). There are also a lot of other 'gourmet' pre-made mixes that will be nothing but cocoa powder and sugar. Some also will have powdered milk, but keep looking and reading ingredients - the good ones will only have the obvious ingredients. ;) (I like Dagoba or Ghirardhelli, myself. Ahlaska makes a good one too.)

We've been using Ghirardelli's. I've never called the company but we've been using it for about 3 years and haven't had any trouble with it. The double chocolate flavor (and maybe others too) is dairy free. We make it with almond milk and like it a lot. I'm not sure there are any other dairy free hot chocolates.

Of course ... if you're not dairy free that's not a problem for you, but you can mix it into cow's milk too :)

Hmm... All your ideas sound great! Thanks a lot. My mom knows how to make it with cocoa powder so I'll ask her how to do it. *is clueless* The hersheys chocolate syrup idea is pretty good, though I've heard wierd things about hershey. Thank you all! I'm not dairy free, luckily. I would probably die without my Briers Mint chocolate chip ice cream every few days.

I generally mix the cocoa powder (a heaping tablespoon or so) with a small amount of water to create a slurry (thick liquid), then add hot water or add it to a hot milk substitute, then sweeten to taste.

I make my hot cocoa exactly the same way. Yummy

The absolute best hot chocolate is just take Hershey's chocolate milk and steam it with the steamer that is attached or a lot of coffee machines (or I think you can buy a steamer thing seperate). Add some whipped cream and yum!

I've found gihardelliis and it's great! Not as sweet as I'm used to, but good all the same!

Stephens Gourmet Hot cocoa mix is gluten free. It is the best I've ever had, and I drank it before I was diagnosed. If you buy it at a sams club it is pretty reasonable in cost. I don't know about lactose intolerant folks, so I guess you'd have to try it. Hope that helps.

Nestle hot cocoa says gluten free right on the side of the box. Kids just had some last night!

With mini marshmallows and added a little milk! Yum.

Hi,

i know all too well what you mean by missing gluten free cocoa, i have been searching for it aswell until i found these guys on my facebook. they have a pretty good range of gluten free products and they deliver world wide. im not sure how much the shipping would be but i throught it might be worth looking into your craving
