    I love the idea of Peppermint Cocoa, but 620 calories with 66.5 g of fat per 8 oz serving is waaay too high for me. I substituted unsweetened Chocolate Almond Breeze sweetened with Truvia and it was great!!! Thanks for the reply and for the recipe. - 12/15/10

    This was designed for a nut-allergic child on the modified Atkins diet for epilepsy, which encourages high fat intake. I tried 50/50 with cream/coconut milk and it tasted gross to me. You can make it with any type of milk. I would add the sweetener slowly so not to over-sweeten.

  • I did a double-take when I saw the fat amount so I'd probably use a prepared cocoa - Swiss Miss no-sugar-added - and maybe a dollop of low-fat half/half and some peppermint extract or peppermint mocha cream (a jigger-full) - 1/8/11

    I would only use real cocoa, not the mixes, sometimes they have bad stuff in them like hydrogenated oils. For a low fat alternative, try skim milk. I made some for myself with a little cream and water. Again, this is not a low calorie recipe, this is designed for a high fat Atkins diet.
