Almond Joy Hot Cocoa

Well once again I’m late doing the blog. I had a very busy day and before I knew it the day was over. Been sticking to my exercise resolution so far. My legs feel it! Then I did some cleaning in the house before I take down the decorations and tree inside this weekend. So while looking through my recipes for today’s cocktail I thought it should be weather appropriate because once again the temps have dropped here in south Florida. Been in the 50s today. Chilly. I know I know, it’s nothing compared to up north, but I left that weather for a reason! Anyway… Here we are. I am tired so today will not have any ramblings. Just the facts! 🙂 And feel free to use regular hot cocoa in this if you have it. I like to save the calories as you know.


1 25-calorie packet of diet hot cocoa mix (no marshmallows)

1½ ounces coconut rum

1 drop almond extract (just one drop so be careful)

Reddi-wip for topping


1. In a mug combine the hot cocoa mix and 6 ounces hot water. Stir till dissolved.

2. Add the rum and almond extract.

3. Stir and top with whipped cream. Enjoy!
