2-2-2 Diet Mocha

While trying to come up with a satisfying "snack" or dessert that fit the requirements of my low carb, low calorie, low fat diet (ugh, but I'm only on it for 3 weeks as a jumpstart), I invented this. (I've experimented often with do-it-yourself coffee mixes, and I think this is better than most.) I'm mostly putting this here to calculate the nutritional information.For cocoa, use the best you can find. Currently I'm using Ghirardelli Unsweetened Cocoa, from a 10 oz. can, sold in the baking section of Publix. My current sweetener is Sucaryl tablets (from Canada), and I use 2 tablets (easy to remember--that's why I tried these proportions).[Edit after publishing: When I found out the total carb count and realized it was too high due to the milk powder, I decided to wait until I go back to low-carbing and then use cream which has zero carbs. However, this is still quite low in calories, so many dieters should find it useful.]
