I'm a newbie. Just tried the hot cocoa. Ugh! It was lumpy and weird tasting. Anybody have any ideas for how to do something with the hot cocoa? I was thinking egg whites and turn it into a mousse....hmmmm..

Your question was: Ideas for Medifast Hot Cocoa?.

I just starting making a chocolate mousse-y type thing. Make the hot cocoa with cold water - maybe a 1/4 cup, you want it thick. To this I add 2-3 tbsps of Fat Free Reddi Whip and a splash of SF raspberry or SF Peanut Butter syrup. Stir until really blended. Pop it in the fridge for 1/2 an hour or so....DELISH!..

I always have the hot cocoa cold, I usually just make it in the shaker. But my FAVORITE thing to do is a recipe I got from a Medifriend..

Hot Cocoa Drops.

By Ashlee.

Ingredients: Medifast hot cocoa, water.

Mix cocoa and 3TBSP of water in a small bowl. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto either wax paper or a plate. I like 3-4 giant spoonfuls, or you can do lots of little ones. Pop in the freezer for 30 minutes. The result tastes almost like fudge!!..

I add Hot Cocoa to my hot Carmel Machitto coffee, in my travel mug, just pour slowly while stirring and it mixes well, no lumps. The travel mug gives you room to stir with no spills. It is decadent!!!..

Comment #3

I put it in the magic bullet blender with cold coffee (about one and a half cups) with lots of ice. It makes a great frappucino!..

Comment #4

Great ideas, everyone. Thanks! I'll give some of these a try and if I manage a mousse, I'll share the recipe. I love that the best way to make the Hot Cocoa is to make it cold, LOL!..

I too am new to Medifast and I also found the Hot Cocoa lumpy & too sweet. I started adding more water but all that did was make it marginally tolerable. Today I added 1 tsp of unsweetened Ghirardelli baking cocoa - oh, wow and did it make a difference! Less than 5 calories, but I'm not good at this stuff enough to tell what the little bit of added carbohydrate (less than 1 gram) & fat (less than .5 gram) amounts to in the overall picture for one day...

I am drinking my first cup of Hot Cocoa and contrary to everyone else, I am in heaven! That is amazing! WOW!! Talk about a chocolate fix! Love this stuff! I mixed it with cold water from the fridge (I have found that keeping a jug of water in the fridge for mixing is wonderful).. then put in the microwave for a bit til hot yummo! Hope you try it again, cause it is great on day 4 for me... :-)..

I found that if I mix the hot cocoa with 6-8 ounces of cold water in the shaker jar then pour into a coffee mug to micro for one minute, I don't get the lumps...

Comment #8

I have found that stirring with a fork helps get rid of the lumps. I also use some cinnamon to help change the flavor...

Comment #9

The hot cocoa is my favorite meal! I have it in the morning and sometimes again for dessert. I add 2TB of Torani sugar-free peppermint syrup for a mint chocolate treat. Perfect for the holidays...enjoy!..

Comment #10

The hot cocoa is my favorite thing, but I almost never have it as hot cocoa. I make it into a shake, or choc drops and freeze them, or put it in my coffee and blend. You will, however, know it when you have overdone the chocolate. Or at least I do. My body can only tolerate just so much chocolate before it rebels..

Is this the Starbucks caramel macchiatto? If so, I wouldn't recommend anyone drinking this while on the 5 and 1 plan. A minimum of 160 extra calories, and 30+ grams of carbohydrates would be more than enough to put anyone over the daily limits.

If not, ignore the above and enjoy your coffee...

I love the hot chocolate.. but I fix it a bit differently .. I put hot water in the cup and then sprinkle in the hot chocolate mix .. with my handy dandy lil aerolatte mixer going.. comes out awesome ..smooth and a but frothy.


Comment #13

I made some for my husband this morning, it was his first DOSE of hot cocoa I put the hot choc mix in the blender with 1/2 cup of cold water AND BLEND UNTIL SMOOTH Then I added a tablespoon of sugar free flavoring syrup and 1 cup of coffee. Heated in the microwave and served. He was thrilled..

You could also freeze it into popsicles..

I drink this on weekend mornings while chatting with my roommates (while they drink there coffee). Really makes me feel like I'm not missing out Anyway, I just blend it with 8 oz. of cold water in a blender or magic bullet, pour into a coffee mug, and microwave it for 1 min., stir, then one more minute. For me, it's frothy and great (compared to the other hot drinks). I find that it's much better very hot rather than just warm...

Comment #15

Thanks to everyone who posted! I tried the trick with mixing it first with a smaller amount of colder water and it really helped - still had some residue at the bottom but not too much. Other good ideas too. This is fun!..

Comment #16

Has anyone tried heating up the shakes?.

I really like hot drinks now that it is so cold out.

So, I was wondering if anyone tried the dutch shake, or vanilla shake - made the same way but then 1-2 in the microwave. I do not see why not. What do you think?..

Comment #17

I heated the swiss mocha once... only once. It was soooooo horrid! I love swiss mocha cold, so it isn't the shake. Something happened when I micro'd it ~ something changed and oh gosh it was bad. So I will never heat a cold shake again...

Comment #18

I make the chocolate, swiss mocha and the dutch chocolate all hot. First mix with cold water, then nuke it. A lot of times I'll throw in coffee (esp the swiss mocha) or 1 tsp of cocoa powder to give them a flavor boost. I'm like you, I want something warm to drink. I also love love love the chai latte! I mix that with some cold coffee and then heat it up. It's like drinking liquid ginger snap cookies! It's my new comfort food...

Comment #19

I love making the Reeces Peanut Butter cup I concocted with the Hot Cocoa... once you try it I dare you not to like it!.

I also like to drink the hot cocoa like the other shakes... blended with ice and cold water. It tastes more like milk than the other shakes.....

Comment #20

Just saw this... No, this is Carmel Macchitto flavored coffee beans from Fresh Market. Make my coffee and then add Medifast Hot Choco mix and sometimes I use the Medifast Capiccino! Mmmmmm....comfort hot drink on a cold day!!..

Comment #21

First, make sure you are using COLD water to mix it. I use a fork too to get out any lumps or my Aerolatte ( to whisk it after I add the liquid. I also like to make mine with cold coffee to cut the sweetness. Make it with water, whisk it up and freeze it, in an hour it's like a Wendy's frosty...
