3-4 cups fat free or low fat milk
2 mint tea bags
1/3 cup steaming hot water in a small cup (for steeping tea)
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
Fat Free Cool Whip topping or miniature marshmallows (optional)
Place mint tea bags into cup of steaming hot water and set aside to steep.
In a medium size saucepan mix the sugar and cocoa powder. Add the steeped mint tea and stir, until completely dissolved. Set heat to medium-high and slowly add the milk, stirring continually, for about a 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium heat and stir mixture continually for about 4 minutes, until the cocoa is completely heated.
Remove from heat and serve immediately into 3-4 mugs. Top with (optional) Fat Free Cool Whip or mini marshmallows and enjoy!
This is one of our family favorites and lately we have been experiencing much colder temperatures outside in our area, so I’ve prepared my home-made Mint Hot Cocoa several times already!
