AthensMom, I would definitely avoid the hot chocolate powder in Phase 1. There's just too many ingredients that might mess up your detox.
Instead, try one of the ideas from Schatzi (
Great ideas, chica!) or perhaps you can modify this hot chocolate idea?
I make hot cocoa every night in both P1 and P2 using the recipe from the side of the Hershey's cocoa (the unsweetened kind) box. Here's what I do:
Take 1 Tbsp. and 2 tsp. of cocoa and mix in a mug with 3 Tbsp of SF syrup in preferred flavor (I love Toasted Marshmellow and Kahlua, but you could use 3 Tbsp of Splenda instead). Stir until cocoa is moistened and syrup is incorporated into cocoa. Add a dash of salt, if you want. While you are doing this, heat 1 to 1.5 cups of milk in the microwave (it take 4 mins on high for 1.5 cups of milk in my micro). When the milk is hot, pour it into the cocoa mixture and stir. You can add a dash of vanilla extract (P2 only) if you want to enhance the flavor. This is just delicious!
Hope this helps.
