I am very deprived.

I have never actually had frozen hot chocolate. I guess I can’t be the best judge here.

But I really, really, really want to try it. Does that count?


Can someone please transport me to New York City so I can try some famous Serendipity frozen hot chocolate?

And while you’re at it, please take me to buy some Christian Louboutin’s. And a fancy purse. And a sugar daddy.

Sorry, Mr. How Sweet. But clearly, I need one. It will save us a lot of money, I promise.

See? I’m full of ideas.

Can I just take a moment to whine about how fabulous this frozen hot chocolate is?

I promise I am not this annoying in person.

(Though judging which family members you ask, that may be debatable.)


It has protein. It has chocolate. It tastes like heaven. And it doesn’t have 8 million calories either.

I’m in love.


Frozen Hot Chocolate – The Healthier Way!

1 cup skim milk (or milk of choice)

1 cup greek yogurt – frozen (freeze for 1-2 hours)

2-3 tablespoons organic cocoa powder

1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon organic sugar (or sweetener of choice)

1 tablespoon reduced-fat chocolate syrup

1 scoop protein powder (optional)

1/4 cup crushed ice

whipped cream or whipped topping

Beforehand, freeze a cup of greek yogurt in the freezer for at least 1-2 hours. Once frozen, add all ingredients except whipped cream to a blender. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes, or until combined.

Top with whipped cream.



I’ll be right back. I have to go water my money tree in the back yard.

    Why am I in the airport with a cup of hot Starbucks when I could be creating this?!?! Seriously, I hardly had to read on past the title to know that this was something I needed. Absolutely bookmarking this because I’ve never had frozen hot chocolate either. (And, another thing we have in common: I could seriously benefit from a sugar daddy as well!)

    I just had a Serendipity frozen hot chocolate in NY on Easter Sunday, and it wasn’t the best I have ever had. I actually like the ones from DQ better, believe it or not!! Yours is probably better. The Serendipity ones are a lot of hype for no reason.

    I have missed Frozen Hot Chocolate since The Cheesecake Factory at Dadeland in Miami stopped serving it. I have tried other recipes but it never was right…hopefully this one does the trick. From the comments I think it will be.

    This looks delicious! I love frozen hot chocolate. Dairy Queen makes a frozen hot chocolate. The coffee shop in Hastings does too. Actually you can have one at Starbucks, called a mocha Cream Frappuccino, which is made with cream instead of coffee. They are delicious!

    For request, take the Daytona Unspotted steel 2005 limited issue with a atramentous dial. This is one of the finest watches made by the circle and one of the finest replica Rolex Daytona watches from our crowd. The carbonized iron thong is built with the same puissance as the primordial, and the carbonized iron bezel has exactly the same markings as with a substantial Daytona. The atramentous dial and the snowy markers lend a lot of elegance to the dial, and the red chronograph time pointers are a pompous stroke of aptitude|genius}.

    A softly watchfulness Once threadbare, the 358 is paradoxically a impressible wakefulness : the 47 mm of diameter enables a herculean dole from the 170 grams of weight (that is according to reason regarding how big the time-keeper, because of the titanium). Enhanced animate is herculean, especially if it’s consumed about the left hands since the crown security doesn’t squeeze about the carpus.
