Sorry for the lack of posting lately, I've been so so busy with work and I'm coming to end of my beauty course so in a couple of weeks I'll be a fully qualified beautician! So back to the point of the post, if you follow me on twitter, you'll have seen that I've been rambling on about the Starbucks christmas drinks and while I love them, they are loaded  with calories and are definitely not a good idea to drink everyday! So I decided that I'd have a go at making my own slightly healthier christmassy drink!
This is so simple and you might not actually need it explained to you but I thought I'd share it anyway because it's so yummy!
So here's how I make my own 'mocha'.
You'll need:
Hot Chocolate Powder
Coffee Granules
Sugar (Optional)
Milk (Optional)
Your favourite mug & a spoon!

1. Put two teaspoons (or as much as you'd like) of hot chocolate powder into the mug, add one teaspoon of coffee (or more/ less depending on your taste) and a little sugar, if you'd like it a bit sweeter.

2. I put a dash of milk into the mug before I add the water, straight on top of the chocolate and coffee, but you can do this the other way round if you'd like.

3. Add the boiling water and stir until smooth.

And that's it! It's so simple and I think it tastes just as nice (or almost as nice!) as a starbucks mocha! You can buy lots of different flavoured hot chocolate powders such as caramel, hazelnut or dark chocolate if you'd like - hazelnut is amazing!
The best part about this one for me is that because I've used options hot chocolate and only a little milk and sugar, and mainly water rather than milk, this drink is only a little over 50 calories - which is amazing compared to the starbucks version at around 250!

What's your favourite winter drink?
