I’ve been going through box after box of hot chocolate over the past few weeks (I had received them as Christmas gifts, more than one box per year, many years in a row). Despite loving chocolate, I’m actually not big on hot chocolate, so they sort of accumulated in a cabinet. Anyway, I was most of the way through probably the best one yet (Bellagio sipping chocolate [I have the older version; apparently the new version is gross ]) and I thought I’d try making it with Soylent 2.0. I followed the instructions as if I was using milk:
- 6 fl oz (3/4 cup, 177 ml) Soylent 2.0, heated (I did 90 seconds with refrigerated Soylent in a 1500 watt microwave; this was probably too hot, if anything)
- 1 oz (3 tbsp, 28 g) chocolate mix (ingredients: “100% pure cocoa powder, pure cane sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter”; I’m sure you could use other brands or make your own)
- top with whipped cream (or whipped Soylent?!)
- don’t forget to drink the rest of your Soylent bottle
Verdict: Not bad! This particular hot chocolate mix doesn’t dissolve quickly in (almond)milk, and it only mostly dissolved in Soylent, even after a lot of time and stirring. Maybe the Soylent is too thick? If I do this again, I’ll probably try half Soylent and half water instead, or perhaps use more Soylent and the same amount of mix.
Has anyone tried this? Am I the first? I searched the forum and didn’t see anything.
