It was creamy and smooth and oh so satisfying. It had a zing (spicy) to it and I asked the guy behind the counter who told me it was cinnamon, but to only get the Abuelita brand. I didn't tell him that I was going to try to recreate this for diabetic me!!
I looked around the internet and saw that mostly it was just cinnamon added but sometimes also a pinch of chili powder (no I have not tried that one!). There are low sugar and/or diet hot chocolate mixes out there-I bought the Swiss Miss one. I generally add water instead of milk since milk tends to raise my blood sugar. I also bought a Sweet Cream Creamer (liquid). I always have cinnamon in the apartment.
I do not measure so you really have to figure out what you like by taste--here are the approximations:
1 Envelope low or no sugar hot choclate mix
2 to 3 tablespoons of cinnamon
Boiling water (I boil water on the stove top)
Sweet Cream Creamer liquid (several different companies make this in the low fat variety)
In the mug-pour in the contents of one envelope hot chocolate mix and the 2 to 3 (or more) tablespoons of cinnamon.
Add boiling water to the mug leaving a bit at the top for the creamer to be added. Stir vigorously with a spoon!!
Add the creamer-stir
