What is a healthy hot chocolate recipe?

It would help if you used a nonfat creamer as they are generally lower in calories and fat. We do not recommend using a sugary variety as this will add unnecessary sugars and calories. Avoid adding additional sugar and limit the amount of chocolate syrup added to your drink.
