CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HG's Chilly Chocolate Mudslide
Choc It to Me!
Straight from the pages of Hungry Girl Happy Hour, a chocolate cocktail with a serious KICK... YEE-HAAA! Get ready for sippable bliss...
One 25-calorie packet hot cocoa mix (like Swiss Miss Diet or Nestlé Fat Free)
2 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda or Truvia)
2 oz. (1/4 cup) light vanilla soymilk
1 1/2 oz. (3 tbsp.) vodka
1/2 oz. (1 tbsp.) sugar-free calorie-free vanilla-flavored syrup (like the kind by Torani)
1 tsp. light chocolate syrup
1 cup crushed ice or 5 to 8 ice cubes
Optional topping: Fat Free Reddi-wip
Combine cocoa mix with sweetener in a glass. Add 2 oz. (1/4 cup) hot water and stir to dissolve. Add soymilk and 1 oz. (2 tbsp.) cold water. Stir and transfer to a blender.
Add all other ingredients except optional topping to the blender, and blend at high speed until thoroughly mixed.
Pour and, if you like, top with a squirt of Fat Free Reddi-wip. Enjoy!
MAKES 1 SERVING
Serving Size: 1 mudslide (entire recipe)
PointsPlus® value 5*
HG Alternative: For a non-alcoholic version, just omit the vodka and add another 1 1/2 oz. (3 tbsp.) soymilk. TADA! Your virgin sipper will have just 66 calories and a PointsPlus® value of 2*. YAY!
Chocolate Mudslide, Average
You Can Run, But You Can't 'Slide...
Don't kid yourself into thinking that you're killing two birds with one stone by ordering a drink that doubles as dessert -- this drink has an entire meal's worth of calories! It's not surprising, when you really think about it... Your average mudslide is made with vodka, creamy liqueurs, chocolate syrup, and the occasional mystery ingredient. (Ice cream? Heavy cream? Bacon?! Okay, probably not bacon.) Plus, mudslides are often ginormous and served in fishbowl-sized glasses. Who knows how many shots of booze could be hiding in that blended sludge? This stuff is bad news! The safest possible way to indulge? With our slimmed-down recipe, of course! It's FULL of chocolatey goodness with a grown-up twist, not unnecessary calories and fat grams. We'll drink to that!
Serving Size: 1 mudslide
PointsPlus® value 14*
