  • Reduce the fat and add more sugar, and you still have a high calorie drink. For great hot chocolate, use whole fat milk, or even a bit of cream. With a proper diet, the hot chocolate won’t matter. I’d like to see the whole "low fat" ididcy go away. It was always about marketing and had nothing to do with health.

  • Shouldn’t there be some heat involved?

  • I am going to try this but using Agave nectar in place of the brown sugar.

    Lynn K. on

  • Yeah! I’m with you!

    Almost sugar free on

  • I second that. Exact same thing with gluten. Apparently everything has to be gluten free these days, and everybody thinks gluten is bad for them. It’s only bad for you if you have celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity, which is about 1 out of 130 people. But it does help empty your wallets and fill the wallets of the big corporations that make overpriced, completely unhealthy gluten free processed junk food.

  • Agree…and then all that fat skimmed off to make low fat milk etc. went into making more and more cheese whose consumption in the US has gone up astonomically since the whole low-fat craze started.

  • I second the fat sentiment. This drink is worse for you than a high fat-low sugar drink. When are people going to understand that it’s sugar that packs the pounds on you, not fats??
    Also, I eat gluten free and I don’t buy those junk products. If I want gluten free baked goods, I make them myself and much healthier. I spend tremendously less on groceries than I used to when I ate grain products. You get more nutrition+calories for your money if you just stick to meat+veggies+fruits+some dairy. I’m also a lot healthier – I’ve lost a lot of weight naturally and feel much better. Most people are sensitive to gluten to some degree, but most not enough to cause them adverse health problems. The only reason this is, is because humans have only been eating grains for a short period of their existence and not everyone has fully adapted to eating them. I can eat grains with not much side effects except gaining weight, so I don’t totally avoid them. It’s just better to make my own gluten free versions of grains. I advise that nobody buys the premade processed stuff with so many ingredients. There are very few acceptable gluten-free knockoff products.

  • @Michael Binder: You wrote in part "… completely unhealthy gluten free processed junk food."

    The adjective "healthy" means "enjoying good health." It applies only to living organisms.

    The adjective meaning "tending to promote good health" is "healthful."

    The phrase would have been correct had you written "… completely unhealthful gluten free processed junk food."

  • Agree with all above, Unfortunately a company like blendtec has to walk back and forth with all types of recipes and hopefully not upset anyone.
    One thing stays the same – Blendtec blender is the most important tool in my kitchen and a great investment for anyone who likes to eat at home

  • You are welcome — I am always glad to help. I am a native speaker of English, and I have known for years that it is one of the more illogical languages. Pity all languages cannot be as logical as Esperanto.

    SylviasDaddy on

  • Thanks. English is not my first language, so I sometimes miss subtleties like this one. I’ll try to remember.

    Michael Binder on

  • English is actually relatively easy what the grammar is concerned, at least compared to German and Romanian, my native languages, and the other languages I know. What makes it really difficult for non-native speakers is the overwhelmingly huge vocabulary. Since it’s based on a mixture of different roots, Indo-Germanic as well as Romance and some others, it has about five times as many words as German, Itatlian, French or Spanish. Sometimes I have the impression that there are always five different words in English for the same thing, and it’s impossible to remember them all.

    Michael Binder on

  • Yeah, Romanian is a curiosity with its language, I have no idea how it happens to be a linguistic island surrounded by slavic speaking countries. Since I was born in Romania (as part of a German minority), I should do some research to learn something about my own roots. Knowing some Romanian made it really easy for me to learn French and especially Italian, a strikingly similar language to Romanian. Interesting stuff.
    Merry Christmas and best wishes back to you.

    Michael Binder on

  • Let us know how it turns out.

    Blendtec on

  • You are doing very well for English not being your first language!

    iluvusa2 on

  • Once you’ve run the "Soup" cycle twice it will be hot enough.

    Blendtec on

  • Once you’ve run the "Soup" cycle twice it will be hot enough. The friction from blending at that speed for 90 seconds gets it plenty hot.

    Blendtec on

  • FTFY: Healthy has many meanings, one of which is "indicative of, conducive to, or promoting good health" (source: Oxford English Dictionary), making it synonymous with healthful. Also contrary to what you said, it can be applied to non-living things: for example, "a healthy appetite" (source: OED).

    Darrenzi on

  • You do realize that Agave has more fructose than high fructose corn syrup and it’s "healthier" just to use plain sugar and honey is actually the best option.

    ktcooking on

  • Do you use hot water? If not, how is this "hot" chocolate? Recipe not clear.
