While trying to come up with a satisfying "snack" or dessert that fit the requirements of my low carb, low calorie, low fat diet (ugh, but I'm only on it for 3 weeks as a jumpstart), I invented this. (I've experimented often with do-it-yourself coffee mixes, and I think this is better than most.) I'm mostly putting this here to calculate the nutritional information. For cocoa, use the best you can find. Currently I'm using Ghirardelli Unsweetened Cocoa, from a 10 oz. can, sold in the baking section of Publix. My current sweetener is Sucaryl tablets (from Canada), and I use 2 tablets (easy to remember--that's why I tried these proportions). [Edit after publishing: When I found out the total carb count and realized it was too high due to the milk powder, I decided to wait until I go back to low-carbing and then use cream which has zero carbs. However, this is still quite low in calories, so many dieters should find it useful.]
