Hot Chocolate (Stevia Sweetened)
Who can resist a warm cup of hot cocoa after a morning playing in the cold winter snow or while sitting next to a crackling fire during a crisp, blustery fall day. Hot chocolate typically includes lots of sugar or artificial sweetener. If these are two ingredients you don't want every time you sip on a cup of hot chocolate try out this stevia sweetened cocoa drink!
Complements: Baking with Stevia
4 cups of organic milk (any kind of milk works great)
4 level tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon stevia extract (or to taste, I use the white powder stevia extract for this recipe)
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Blend milk, cocoa, stevia, salt and vanilla in blender. Pour into a pan and heat. Do not boil. I place the cocoa in a crockpot and let it warm for an hour or so. Serve hot. Enjoy!
