Hot chocolate - a plea!

Dear Readers,

Has anyone come across a candida diet friendly hot chocolate/cocoa powder/recipe? It's freezing cold here at the moment, and I'm in desperate need. Green tea just doesn't cut it when you want a lovely, comforting and warming mug of cocoa!

Yours hopefully,

Djinn x

***UPDATE***

Take half a teaspoon of Cadbury's Bournville Cocoa, and mix into a mug of warm goats milk. Add a teaspoon of xylitol and mix well. Delicious!

Hi, I came across your blog the other day when I was searching for information about Candida. I just wanted to say I love it! I was only diagnosed last week (though I think I've had a Candida problem for a good ten years) and I've been finding the diet really tough. Your up beat blog puts a smile on my face :)

I've been really missing hot chocolate but I wasn't sure what to use to sweeten cocoa with so I will try some Xylitol.

I'm a bit naughty and buy Oatly chocolate drink. It has 3grams of sugar added to the whole thing, the sweetness otherwise come from the oats and as I can't have dairy it's brilliant for me. anybody else I've made try it thinks it's amazing, highly recommend!

Sounds good Spence - but I fear it would lead me on a slippery slope downwards into sugar hell! ;)

Oh, and I've already discovered the Plamil choc: http://cardboard-diet.blogspot.com/2007/08/non-farty-sugar-free-chocolate.html

Thanks. :)
