2 cups nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 cup lower-fat powdered nondairy creamer
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
10 packets sweetener or 1 tablespoon measurable sweetener of choice
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

For cocoa mix, stir together milk powder, nondairy creamer, cocoa powder, sweetener and, if desired, cinnamon. Cover and store in an airtight container. For each serving, in a heat-proof mug add 3/4-cup boiling water to 1/3-cup cocoa mix; stir to dissolve.

Mocha Cocoa Mix:
For a delicious mocha-flavored variation of Instant Cocoa Mix, prepare as directed, except decrease the cocoa powder to 1/3-cup and add 1/4-cup instant coffee crystals.

Recipe makes 2-2/3 cups mix (enough for eight, six-ounce servings).
