This Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate is only 1 point! It’s a perfect fall treat!
The main thing I did to keep this pumpkin spice hot chocolate only 1 point was to use almond milk instead of regular milk.
8 ounces of almond milk is only 1 point, while 8 ounces of skim milk which is 3 points.
This hot chocolate is packed with so much flavor I couldn’t even tell a difference.
Besides the almond milk there is pumpkin, unsweetened cocoa, granulated Splenda, vanilla extract and pumpkin pie spice.
You can typically find pumpkin pie spice at the grocery store with all of the other spices. Just don’t wait until the week of Thanksgiving to buy it….you might be out of luck.
If you don’t want to buy the pumpkin pie spice you can always make your own.
- 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Simply mix all of the spices together and store in an air tight container.
To make the pumpkin spice hot chocolate just add all of the ingredients to a small saucepan and cook over low/medium heat.
I used a whisk to make sure all of the ingredients were blended together.
You can also add some fat-free Reddi Wip and it won’t change the points.
Since this recipe only uses 1/3 cup pumpkin I usually store the rest in the fridge. It stays good for a couple of days.
And trust me, you’re going to want to make this pumpkin spice hot chocolate again!
