The Smitten Kitchen blog put together a tasty recipe that puts a summery twist on a classic winter beverage. Although most people associate hot chocolate with cooler temperatures, the drink can also be appropriate for the summer months. This recipe demonstrates how to turn hot cocoa into an icy cold beverage.

The recipe calls for whole milk, cocoa powder and a little bit of chocolate. The ingredients mimic that rich flavor of hot chocolate, but with the cold and creamy texture of a chocolate shake. For an extra special treat, you can finish the drink with a dollop of whipped cream and decorative chocolate shavings. Despite the ultra-sweet ingredients, the frozen hot chocolate is less intense than a milkshake.

While hot chocolate will always be associated with cooler temperatures, this recipe offers a summery take on the classic winter beverage.
