Who doesn’t love a cup of hot cocoa …? But in the heat, maybe not so refreshing.  Try an Iced Hot Chocolate instead.  Similar to the classic, yet cool and refreshing.  First, start with delicious chocolate melted in warm milk as the base and when blended to gather with ice and low-fat milk, creates a frothy delicious cold chocolate beverage! Most importantly, serve in a chilled glass and finally drizzle the top with chocolate syrup as a garnish.


1/4 cup half and half

1 1/2 ounces semisweet chocolate (melted)

1 1/2 cups low-fat milk

4 ice cubes


1 ounce of whipped cream

Chocolate syrup for garnish
