Skinny 105-Calorie Hot Chocolate + $500 Target Gift Card Giveaway


If you think it’s impossible to have a creamy, rich mug of hot chocolate for 105 calories, think again.

I’m not talking about those sugar-free packets with the space-food mini marshmallows with water added.

Skinny 105-Calorie Hot Chocolate - You won't miss the calories and fat in this chocolaty and creamy skinny treat!

I’m talking about a rich, creamy mug of hot chocolate made with real chocolate milk.

I used the new TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk. TruMoo has Chocolate and Vanilla milks available year-round, but this is a special February edition.

It’s available in the dairy section at grocery stores nationwide through the month of February, and is also available at Target and Walgreens. Here’s a store locator.

TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk is made with fresh white milk sourced from regional dairies around the country. There’s no artificial growth hormones and no high fructose corn syrup.

Sometimes I want to buy chocolate milk for my daughter, but don’t want all the sugar and additives.

Not to mention, I can guzzle anything chocolate like crazy, so keeping the drink lighter is a bonus. Just 105 calories for 6 ounces or 140 calories for 8 ounces.

There’s pure cocoa in the chocolate milk with just enough natural sugar to balance the cocoa for a chocolaty, smooth, and creamy treat.

It’s great warm or cold, but since it’s chilly out, a warm mug of hot chocolate hits the spot.

Love those kind.

    They make chocolate marshmallow milk now!? As if hot chocolate couldn’t get easier, this comes along! Thank goodness it’s light(er) – mass quantities would certainly be consumed in my house. :)

    True story: I flat out refused to drink white milk from the day I could talk. My mom had to buy chocolate to get me to drink it.

    They changed everything around at our grocery store and I spotted this while searching for eggs. I need to pick up a carton next time I go.

    Wow! I guess I would have to try it both ways. I’m hooked on TruMoohoo Chocolate Milk and will be looking for the Chocolate Marshmallow variety next shopping day.

    True Moo is my favorite brand of chocolate milk. My daughter always gets the Tru Moo chocolate milk from Subway, and I end up drinking most of her milk. She gets peeved, but it’s just so yummy!
