    Can anyone suggest a low calorie hot drink for me?

    I've got a tickly cough, it's driving me MAD! The only thing that stops it seems to be a cup of hot chocolate, but I don't want to drink loads of calories when I'm eating so healthily!

    I can't stand tea or coffee, so I'm limited on options!

    Cut 2 slices from a lemon and put in a cup, squeeze the juice out of the rest of the lemom into the cup. Add 2 tablespoons of honey and pour on hot water. Add cinnamon if you have it

    The honey isn't low fat/cal but it has great healing powers and soothes a sore throat. Also, just swallowing a spoonful of honey will coat your throat and ease the pain. I think is an antiseptic

    Have you tried green tea or herbal teas as well? They're really low cal. :)

    The trouble is I don't really like any kind of tea or coffee. I normally have hot chocolate if I need a hot drink, but obviously that's not great for calorie counting... although a friend suggested I keep a few sachets of instant hot chocolate in the cupboard as they're better apparently.

    I did try what you suggested Taz and it really soothed my throat- worth the extra calories in the honey! Thanks for the suggestion :)

    No problem, glad it helped! My mum always used to make it by the jug load when we were ill and when I had a bad dose of flu at the beginning of the year she brought me round a flask full!
