Frozen Hot Chocolate

I’m getting a little nostalgic about summer melting away into the monsoon. I guess I’m the kind of girl who needs her sunshine. Grey skies depress me. I need a pick –me- up… right now!

Serendipitously (love that word), I’ve found a recipe that was the secret of New York’s famed ‘Serendipity 3’ restaurant. A recipe so good, that it managed to get a pivotal role in a Hollywood movie called, no surprises, ‘Serendipity’. Yes, the very same ‘Frrrozen Hot Chocolate’ that John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale slurped down in the movie and Oprah declared as one of her Favourite Things.

But, as things usually do on this blog, this recipe too has a ‘To the T’ spin to it. I’ve replaced whole milk with soy milk to make it slightly guilt-free. Almond milk would be a great option too, but if you do decide to go with whole milk, you would need to double the quantity of ice from my recipe. Two teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder add to the unadulterated chocolatey pleasure of this drink.

You know that girl at Starbucks who’s constantly checking to make sure her Frapp has no whipped cream? That’s me! So, duh, there’s none here either. Just pure wholesome chocolate. We’re on a ‘pick me up mission’, remember?

Serves 2.
