Hot chocolate has always been one of my weaknesses, especially during the autumn when the nights are getting cooler and you need that warm comforting mug of something just before bed. I have recently been trying to overhaul my eating and really cut down on my sugar intake, something that threatened to put an end to my occasional chocolate treat.
However, fate was kindly to intervene when I spotted Sweet Freedom's new product, Choc Shot, on the shelf of my local supermarket! Having previously enjoyed using their range of natural sweeteners, I was keen to give this new product a go.
What Sweet Freedom say about Choc Shot:

: Sweet Freedom® (natural fruit extracts; apples, grapes & carob), water, cocoa, rapeseed oil, natural chocolate flavour
I believe I paid £2.99 for the bottle which is 320g (I am an idiot who looses receipts all the time)
I think the squeezy dispenser is a really good idea in general for hot chocolate, as you aren't fiddling about with trying to spoon lumps of powder. It also tastes very much like regular hot chocolate when put in milk, I personally use Almond milk as it imparts a nutty flavour.
I'm also currently trying to cut out gluten from my diet, (to see if it makes a difference in my general health) so the fact that it's gluten free is a real bonus!
What I think is the real USP of this product though is it's versatility, the packaging clearly encourages you to use it in milkshakes or as a chocolate sauce on ice creams and fruit. You can check out how I enjoyed my Choc Shot this morning at the end of this post!
If used in moderation, I think it's a great way of enjoying a treat!
