Sugar Free Hot Cocoa Made With Stevia
On a cold winter day or really any other day, nothing tastes better than a warm mug or cup of Sugar Free Hot Cocoa Made With Stevia!
If you are using a granular or other kind of dry Stevia sweetener, start by combining it with the unsweetened cocoa mix in your mug. Liquid forms of Stevia sweetener can be added later on.
In a microwave, using a microwave-safe mug or bowl, warm your dairy (milk, half and half, etc). Or, you could warm this ingredient on a stove. Usually this will take 1- 1/2 minutes on high in the microwave but, this depends on your liquid, the microwave and your personal preferences for hot.
Pour the heated liquid/dairy into your mug and stir it into the Unsweetened Cocoa Powder. Be sure to break up any chunks of cocoa. Stir in the remaining ingredients, the vanilla extract and if you are using liquid Stevia then the liquid Stevia.
Actual nutritional information will vary according to the ingredients that you use.
Please see the recipe post for details on this recipe
As mentioned, you will need Unsweetened Cocoa Powder.
You will also need Stevia for this recipe. You can find all kinds of Stevia choices, from liquid to packets to powder, here.
Read the packaging on which Stevia you choose to use as some are mixed with other ingredients such as sugar in order to get the volume to be more like that of sugar.
About the liquid that you use-Milk or similar dairy- 1 cup. You could get a richer texture with whole milk (which does have carbs) or half and half (low to no carbs). Some folks use water- which to me is not so great tasting but, it may work for you. Nut milks (cashew etc.) are other options.
