    Default Alternative to milo/hot choc???

    I'm studying and often sit down with a hot drink to sip away on. I get a bit over tea by the end of the day and have been having a weak milo but want to cut it out as it is high energy even though low gi.

    After an alternative to milo/hot choc that doesn't have carcinogenic sugar alternatives in it. It doesn't have to be super sweet.

    I really like Horlicks (tastes like warm malted milk) - less carbs than Milo and it's not sweet.

    Caro, looks like coffee but is caffeine free and doesn't taste like it.

    Teeccino I think it's called, you can get different flavours. It's like a coffee alternative made from herbs and stuff, sounds gross but if you make it right it's nice.

    Thank you! I have some T2 chai tea for that spice hit. Just after the choc alternative - Might check out the Horlicks, probably should try to keep it relatively low calorie though - does it have to have much milk added?

    I make my own milo which is gluten free and no nasty preservatives/additives. It's rice malt syrup made into a hard toffee and then blended with raw cacao powder. Rice malt syrup is made from 100% organic brown rice. It is made through culturing rice with enzymes to breakdown the starches and then cooking until it becomes syrup. The final product contains soluble complex carbohydrates, maltose and a small amount of glucose. RMS is 100% fructose free.
    It milo tastes so good I eat it straight out of the jar

    I just mix pure cacao powder with my hot milk. I don't eat sugar so the milk makes it sweet enough for me, but I used to add a drop of two of vanilla essence to it.

    I buy the Cacao Gold brand online because I think it tastes the best (but I'm willing to admit maybe I just think the packaging is prettiest lol)
