Frozen Hot Chocolate #CoolerWithAlmondBreeze



I adore hot chocolate in the wintertime... while it's not quite wintertime yet, winter it's definitely in the air.  The leaves have fallen from the trees, the air is crisp and cool, and my shorts and tank tops have long been replaced with cozy sweaters and long pants.

During this in-between kind of season, I go back and forth between craving summer smoothies, and wanting a warm and cozy winter beverage.  Rather than choose between the two I decided to go with the best of both worlds and made this frozen hot chocolate instead!

Ingredients
- 12 Blue Diamond Chocolate Almond Breeze ice cubes (see below)
- 2/3 cup Blue Diamond Chocolate Almond Breeze
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- your favourite whipped topping (I like this recipe)
- 1 square dark chocolate


Directions

Pour Blue Diamond Chocolate Almond Breeze into an ice cube tray and freeze for 4-6 hours.  Once frozen, remove ice cube tray from freezer and let rest on counter for 2-3 minutes to loosen.  

Blend chocolate ice cubes, almond milk, and cocoa powder together until smooth. Adjust almond milk as necessary to obtain desired constancy (I like my smoothies pretty thick). 

Top with whipped topping and shaved chocolate (I used a vegetable peeler against the edge of the chocolate to get a nice curl).
