Warm Up With Hot Chocolate

Are you nostalgic for the taste and comfort of hot chocolate on a chilly winter day? Good news! You can enjoy hot cocoa on all Phases of the South Beach Diet.

Most traditional cocoa mixes contain a lot of added sugar, so be sure to choose a mix that is unsweetened and ideally contains dark chocolate. Or make your own mix using unsweetened cocoa powder, fat-free or 1% milk, and artificial sweetener. When made with milk, the cocoa counts toward your daily Sweet Treat allotment of 75 to 100 calories and also as a serving of dairy. If you use water rather than milk, just count it as a Sweet Treat.

If hot cocoa isn’t your thing, but you're looking for a warm drink with a little more pizzazz than regular tea or coffee, try a cup of chai tea. Remember to choose a brand without added sugar or honey (chai tea bags are usually best), and enjoy the chai with a touch of fat-free or 1% milk, or low-fat plain or artificially sweetened soymilk.
