Low Cal Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate | Simrun Chopra

This SIMple hot chocolate tastes like hot melted chocolate in a cup.Try this low calorie version every time you crave chocolate and you'll thank me.

I prefer to use unsweetened cocoa powder as this helps control the amount of sugar you want to add. 

You can use any sweetener of your choice. If you just keep boiling this down slowly you get a chocolate sauce. It's that simple. 

If you want to make the sauce more indulgent, just add a tiny bit of butter at the end. 


Hot Chocolate to Drink 

  • 1 cup water measured 
  • 1 heaped tbsp cocoa powder 
  • 1 lump of jaggery 


  • Add the jaggery to a pot and pour in the water slowly
  • While whisking or mixing continuously to remove lumps
  • Add in the jaggery and turn on the flame to high and bring the mixture to a boil 
  • Once it starts bubbling, turn down the flame and let is lowly reduce to nearly half 
  • Taste for consistency and sweetness 
  • Serve hot 

Optional : You can also sprinkle a little Cinnamon powder at the end






    This is really easy and quick than what I thought.
