On a chilly morning, enjoy a steamy cup of this guilt-free coffee drink.
In a medium saucepan, combine unsweetened cocoa powder, instant espresso powder (or coffee), and salt. Starting very gradually (adding 1 tablespoon at a time), vigorously whisk in 2 cups water until very smooth; whisk in 1 1/2 cups low-fat milk.
Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Stir in sugar until dissolved. If desired, strain through a fine-mesh sieve before serving.
Instead of using sugar, you can make the drink with your favorite sweetener (add to taste).
