Hot Cocoa for fructose malabsorption

Happy Winter! Personally, I’m not much of a fan of winter. My kids on the other hand, have so much fun outside when it snows. We’ve had a mild winter here in Chicago so far, but over the Christmas break we got a few inches. Time to break out the snow pants, sleds and play! And when you’re finished playing outside, freezing cold and wet – there is nothing better to come in to than a hot mug of cocoa! Well, unless of course you have fructose malabsorption 🙁 TQ already has so many restrictions that it’s sad to see the disappointment in his face when the neighborhood is over and breaking out the mugs. So, I came up with this on the fly, and it worked. TQ was a happy guy and felt “normal” for day.

The ingredients are pictured here on the left. Super easy! Feel free to exchange the milk out to whatever you drink – soy, almond coconut. Heat 1 cup in a small saucepan over low heat. Alternatively, you can heat the milk in the microwave for about 1 minute.

I used a dark chocolate bar with 88% cocoa. I know there is some debate whether dark chocolate is low FODMAP. TQ can tolerate dark chocolate in moderation.Grate 2 tablespoons of chocolate using a fine grater, or microplane. The result was almost powdered.

Add the chocolate to the milk and stir to melt. It took a bit of stirring, and there were still a few specks that didn’t melt but that didn’t matter.
Add 2 tablespoons of powdered dextrose and stir.
Taste to adjust sweetness.
