Delicious Low Carb Hot Chocolate

Here's my best attempt at a low carb hot chocolate! Its delicious and almost tastes like McDonald's. Just a little over 10 carbs and is on plan for Trim Healthy Mama

1 1/2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk, about 3/4 tablespoon cocoa powder, 2 teaspoons stevia (3 is better but was trying to hold down the carb count) (I use Pyure), 2 tablespoons heavy cream or half & half, whipped topping on the top. I only used a very tiny amount of sprinkles. Heat the milk and cream or half & half in the microwave for 2 minutes (adjust to your microwave). This amount fits in one of these tall coffee cups. Then add the other ingredients and stir well. When you get done there will be some cocoa powder in the bottom of the cup, but I just pour that out. You can also adjust the sweetness and amount of chocolate to your taste.




The weather is really dreary and cold today.  It was almost 80 yesterday and only got into the 30s Friday! 

Happy Monday!

My Christmas Table

I love these plates and forks found at Walmart. 


I tried to do a natural centerpiece.  The apples and some of the leaves are real.  There are beans in the jar with a battery operated candle.





I made the runner and napkins.  My table is oval and its very hard to find the right tablecloth in the right size and shape.  I may buy a solid muslin colored one in a rectangle shape and then round the corners myself with the sewing machine.  


My favorite one.  I searched 4 Walmarts and finally found one.


Happy Monday!
