Crazy Pregnancy Cravings - Chocolate Slushie

Yesterday I was hit with this crazy pregnancy craving.  I wanted a frozen chocolate drink, kinda like a frappe, but without the coffee taste.  I really had no idea what I was doing, but I pulled out the hot chocolate mix, ice cubes, and the blender, and created my own little taste sensation.

It satisfied my craving, all 10 grams of fat.

What can I say?

So, I'm not saying this is a recipe you want to try or anything, but I thought it was pretty good.

Chocolate Slushie

Makes 1 large glass, AKA 1 fat girl serving or 2 normal people servings


3 pouches of hot chocolate mix
1/2 tray of ice cubes
1/4 cup milk or water, warmed (I made mine with water.)
whipped cream and chocolate syrup, optional


Mix hot chocolate mix into warmed milk or water until dissolved. Add ice cube to cool hot chocolate mixture.  Fill blender with ice cubes and add chocolate mixture.  Blend until mixture is slushie consistency.   Top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup for pure decadence.  Serve immediately.
