Coffee (otherwise known as the Simplest Allergen-Free Hot Chocolate Ever!)Posted: December 6, 2010
However, no matter how many times I told him it was actually “hot chocolate”, he refused to believe me and insisted that he was drinking “coffee”. I guess he wanted to be like Mommy!
If your little one would like some hot chocolate, too, but you’ve been stumped by dairy allergies, here’s the simplest idea ever:
- Buy a container of chocolate rice milk.
- Pour some into a microwave-safe mug.
- Heat for a minute or two in the microwave.
- Cool slightly and enjoy!
The great thing is that most marshmallows are allergen-friendly (if not exactly healthy…), so you can throw a few in there for a truly decadent hot chocolate experiment.
Or, to celebrate the season, throw a peppermint candy or mini candy cane into the hot chocolate and stir until it melts: Peppermint Hot Chocolate!
I don’t usually buy the flavored rice milks, but I think I’m going to keep a box of the chocolate kind on hand throughout the winter season. What about you?
