Let’s make a delicious strawberry hot chocolate.

Strawberry Hot Chocolate ingredients:

Here is What You Need to Make Strawberry Hot Chocolate:

  • 1 Package of Fresh Strawberries
  • 4 Cups of Whole Milk (you can also use have cream and have milk if you wish)
  • 12 oz.  of White Chocolate Chips

Sprinkle sugar over strawberries.

Step 2

Sprinkle the granulated sugar over the strawberries and set aside.

Heat the milk and white chocolate chips over medium heat.

Step 3

In a saucepan, heat up the milk and white chocolate chips over medium heat. You want to achieve a simmer and not a rolling boil. Stir constantly until all the chocolate is melted then remove from heat.

Blend strawberries until they are a soup-like consistency.

Step 4

In a blender, blend the strawberries until they are a soup-like consistency.

Step 5

Pour the strawberry puree into the white chocolate mixture and mix well.

Step 6

Melt the pink melting chocolate in the microwave.

Step 7

Tip your glass upside down in the pink melting chocolate.

Step 8

Tip your glass upside down in the pink melting chocolate and cover the rim of the glass. Allow to harden for several minutes. Tip: You can speed up the process by placing the glass into the fridge or freezer.

Joy is Sensorial!

Laughing, playing, tasting, seeing, and enjoy the good things in life are all great examples of ways we use our senses each and every day.  Those things are even better when shared. So we are on a mission to share joy with those around us and since joy is sensorial, we will spread joy with things that heighten our senses. For today, that is this delicious drink!

With Valentine’s Day approaching  I thought this would make a great treat to share with my boys. I even found some adorable milk bottles with lids to present it in a fun way. My youngest son took to it right away!

He sure loved this strawberry hot chocolate!

Now I know what you are thinking, that it doesn’t seem like the healthiest of beverages. Well, it does have milk and is made with real strawberries. Plus the Reddi-wip actually only has 15 calories per “whoosh” (that sound it makes when you press the nozzle) and is made with real cream. So really, it’s only the chocolate that is giving the most calories and hey, life is worth indulging in sometimes, don’t you agree? 😉
