Have you discovered Wondercocoa™? It has half the carbs of regular Dutched cocoa and almost no caffeine. (It also has no fat, but since cocoa butter is one of the good fats, that’s not especially important.)

One serving of Wondercocoa has 1 net gram of carbohydrate, no fat, and it is 99.7 % caffeine free. The label states that the fat is removed by mechanical pressing. If you use Wondercocoa™ and liquid sucralose, a rich, creamy, cup of cocoa is almost a freebie!

1 tablespoon Wondercocoa™ or other Dutched cocoa
Liquid sucralose or other sugar substitute equal to 2 teaspoons of sugar
1/3 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup of water
A few grains of salt
A dash of cinnamon
¼ teaspoon sugar-free vanilla extract

Combine the cocoa with a small amount of the water and mix to a smooth paste in a microwave-safe cup or a small saucepan. Stir in the rest of the water, the cream, sweetener, and salt. Heat in the microwave for about 1½ minutes or on cooktop until hot. Stir in vanilla. Top with sugar-free Whipped Cream and dust with cocoa powder or sprinkle with orange zest, if desired.

Makes 1 serving of 1 cup.
Per serving—Net Carbohydrate: with Wondercocoa™, 1 net gram; with other brands of Dutch cocoa, 2 net grams

Replace cream and water with Hood Calorie Countdown Milk® (add 3 net grams of carbohydrate for a total of 4 per serving).

If you prefer marshmallows in your cocoa, try La Nouba® sugar-free marshmallows. They are sweetened with maltitol, but they taste and melt like regular marshmallows.

The working title for my first book was, “You’ll Never Know What You Are Missing.” It summed up my goal: to make eating for health synonymous with eating for pleasure. Once you discover the secret, you will find that the very best food for weight management, longevity, the treatment and prevention of disease, and over-all health and happiness is also the most sumptuous, satisfying, and indulgent way of eating the world has to offer. You are invited to the feast. Enjoy!
