Hot Cocoa

Hot Cocoa
4 - 5 servings
Rich and chocolaty - like Mom used to make.


- 3 tbsp cocoa
- 1/2 tsp powdered Stevia extract
- 4 to 5 cups of soymilk or milk
- 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix the cocoa and Stevia extract together in a medium-sized saucepan.
Add about 1/2 cup of the soymilk or milk to the dry ingredients to make a paste.

Gradually thin the paste with about 1/2 cup of the milk.
Add the honey or maple syrup while bringing to a low boil.

Boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the rest of the milk to the desired richness.
Add the vanilla and return to burner until heated through.

Note: Be careful not to scorch the cocoa. Use a pan with a heavy bottom and watch closely.

Variation: You may add a teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. (Excerpted with permission from "Stevia: naturally sweet recipes for desserts, drinks and more!", by Rita DePuydt - Book Publishing Co.)

Milk: Use Nonfat milk for your health.
