I have tried out this great recipe for hot chocolate as I am giving up coffee now... :(  This recipe is from Alton Brown on the Food Network and really tastes great!  I found a whole powdered milk without vitamin D ... but probably would also be good with non fat milk also.  I just left out the sugar and sweeten each cup individually with stevia instead.  You can use the sugar or any other sweetener you desire.. just please DO NOT use aspartame.. that is a neurotoxin as far as I am concerned!!

The beauty of this recipe is you can mix up a big batch and just have it on hand to use as desired!  And it tastes GREAT!!  For an extra bit of richness I add a small amount of half and half to each cup like I would in my coffee.... YUMMMMMM!!

Hot Chocolate Recipe from Alton Brown at Food Network

Ingredients
    2 cups powdered sugar
    1 cup cocoa (Dutch-process preferred)
    2 1/2 cups powdered milk
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons cornstarch
    1 pinch cayenne pepper, or more to taste
    Hot water
Directions
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and incorporate evenly. In a small pot, heat 4 to 6 cups of water.
Fill your mug 1/3 to 1/2 full with the mixture and pour in hot water. Stir to combine. Seal the rest in an airtight container, keeps indefinitely in the pantry. This also works great with warm milk.

Your ingenuity puts me to shame. I just mix two parts of Droste cocao with one Part of D-free whole dried milk. Then spoon about a tablespoon into a (big) mug of water at about 65 degrees centigrade, and sweeten with one packet of "Stevia in the Raw" (from Albertson's).

Thanks Dr Marshall!  Are you safely in China now?

I remembered seeing this on TV and looked it up ... we tried it on Sunday and it is delicious!  The cornstarch adds JUST enough thickening to it.  And making up a large batch is very convenient for Elizabeth as I am not quite able to navigate the kitchen any more.  We even have a hot water nozzle on our coffee maker ... so it is only a matter of seconds to whip up a cup.  Of course Droste cocoa would be excellent in this recipe and the amount of cayenne is totally optional.  Cinnamon can also be substituted for the cayenne if desired. 

So there ARE some advantages to giving up my coffee... now the problem will be a valiant effort not to drink this TOO often!!!  :D

And I guess with TODAY being a milestone, maybe I'll celebrate the expiration of the olmesartan patent ... with an extra cup spiked with some Irish Whiskey or Bailey's Irish Cream!!  :D

Don't forget the whipped cream.
I will try this....Alton Brown usually has these things down to a science.
Here, in Panama, it is not easy to find Vitamin d-less milk...so I use Organic Valley Instant dry milk and it works fine. I find that if I add a bit of heavy cream, which usually has no D, it makes a richer mixture. My husband uses this for his coffee and has no complaints.

Chris, I just made the mixture and it tastes delicious! :P

It is a lot of sugar so I will try it with stewia also.
But the taste is fantasic! I added 1½ tsp of vanillinsugar as well,
and I only had 1½ cups of whole milk powder at home (Nestles). Still very good taste.
In the future I might add some cinnamon and cardamom too!
Anyhow it is a very good base mixture to keep on the shelves in a jar, for a quick fix ;)
Thank you! :)

Glad you enjoyed it Lottis!  I just enjoyed a cup a few minutes ago myself!  Cinnamon and other spices are all fun to try.  I do like the little extra spice, very subtle, of the cayenne in this.  My wife and I are going to experiment with some different cocoa powders to find the one we like best.  First one we tried is by Guittard a company local to us here in San Francisco. It was darker and it did taste a bit better than the other cocoa powder we were using before.  So as a fun thing to do... try different cocoa powders and find the right one for you!  Being homebound is challenging and these types of things help me cope with it!!

Lottis,
Nestles whole milk powder is supplemented everywhere in the world. Are you sure yours is not 'fortified'.
 
..Trevor...
ps: Nestles are the world leader in supplementing dried milk powder. They started supplementing powder in the 1950s. Everything shipped to underdeveloped countries since the 1950s has been fortified.

Except for the milk powder (I am pretty sure all milk powder in Canada is required to be fortified) - that sounds REALLY good. Actually, I just remembered I have a container of goat's milk powder with no D :D

Deb,
Whole milk powder can be ordered from AmericanSpice.com (internet order), that is what was recommended to me and is what I use.

Then again, American milk has bovine growth hormone in it. Canadian milk does not.

I believe it is being avoided for all dairy cattle these days as there was consumer back lash, it is common even on grocery store generic milk to have the containers labeled as GH free. I have emailed the AS customer service requesting confirmation, for my own interest.
Best,
Mike

Hi Mike,

Very interesting. I remember some senior scientists at Health Canada getting fired because they were against adding GH to milk here. Industry was trying to push them into approving it. There was a big scandal.

Deb,
Just as bad or worse (for us) is adding vitamin D to the feed of all animals. I got a reply back that they don't know if GH is fed to the cows that give the milk, they are only the reseller (can't be bothered to find out in other words), oh well. Food is such tricky thing these days.

Best,
Mike

I use Navitas organic raw cacoa from health food stores, http://www.vitacost.com or http://www.amazon.com. It has a really nice taste, sometimes I mix it with coconut and coconut crystals and vanilla and nuts. Great dessert.

Also, I use low glycemic Coconut Secret coconut crystals or organic agave nectar.

I just received the Amer Spice dried milk powder and look forward to making hot chocolate, Yumm .... But it's too warm tonight, last night was cold but no milk powder

I really like Ghiradelli's (hey another SF native!) Double Chocolate cocoa mix.  It has sugar in it, but it isn't overwhelming, and there's no dairy in it.  I heat up some Bob's Red Mill nonfat milk and put in a couple of tablespoons of the cocoa.  It's sooooo smooth.  It does, however, have soy lecithin in it, so if you are being very careful with your diet, don't use it.

Put about 5-7 pieces of Dove dark chocolate in a mug. Poor in milk over chocolate. Microwave for about a minute. Take out and stir, then put back in microwave until hot. Stir and drink. For variation sprinkle with cinnamon, cayenne pepper, or stir with peppermint stick.

Sounds yummy!  But I won't be doing it because that's more sugar than I want to feed my bugs.

All best,
Dody
