Since my diabetic diagnosis over three years ago the only thing I have ever craved, the only disappointing total elimination from my diet, has been hot cocoa. Occasionally I have so wanted a hot drink on a chilly evening, but since I can't drink tea or coffee and detest most herbal teas, I have had to settle for cold or even room temperature sodas and water instead. Blaaah!!
Only recently did it occur to me that I could purchase some artificial sweetner other than the dreaded, bitter stevia and give hot cocoa a try. So, yesterday I purchased a box of Sugar Twin packs and tonight I made myself a mug. My husband has some delicious and excellent quality Lebanese cocoa that I have been wanting for a long time to taste.
I just finished my hot cocoa and Sugar Twin with just a dash of milk. MMMMM....YUMMMMM....to die for! This is going to be my go-to comfort treat as needed. That means it won't be a regular habit, but just occasionally I too will be able to have a hot drink before bed at night.
How do you spell "bliss"??
