Stevia Hot Chocolate

"If you want to decrease your sugar intake and feel good about it, well this may be just what you need. I put in the desired amount of stevia for me, you may want to add a tad more, BUT, remember it is powerful so only a little pinch at a time for the desired sweetness, too much stevia will give you a bitter aftertaste. Now you will have to get used to not having a sickening sweet cocoa like a lot of mixes make, but you will have just the perfect cup of cocoa with all the sugar! Plus it really is good. If you want to, you can experiment, add a drop of peppermint essential oil, or a peppermint candy to your hot cup of cocoa. Since you are saving lots of sugar, you can splurge there! Sometimes I will put in a chocolate kiss and just let it melt in the hot cocoa! I hope you like it."

  1. Delicious! I made it with original unsweetened almond milk and divine cocoa powder. It was about 100 calories. I used two drops of liquid stevia and about 1/4 tsp cinnamon. YUMMY!
  2. I made a very similar concoction and used Stevia Plus (should be on the shelf right next to stevia in a green labeled bottle or box) and didn't notice the aftertaste like I do with regular stevia.
  3. I make this often, with Lactaid milk. I don't have to use much stevia in it. It's delicious! And I heat the milk up first, before I stir in the cocoa. Bon Appétit!
  4. I did not like this at all. It was too bitter and bland for my taste.
  5. Yum! I used organic plain soy milk and two stevia packets. Next time I will up the cocoa powder to 2 tablespoons... need my chocolate fix! I like that it isn't THAT sweet. Good sweet tooth fix for around 100 calories.


I love to cook. I also love to garden, both vegetables and flowers are my passion. I enjoy the great out doors, also, looking for new and interesting recipes to make for my family. Baking in the cooler fall and winter months fills the home with such wonderful aromas, plus living in the Great Lakes State, sometimes you do not see the sun for weeks. So filling the home with inviting aromas with fresh baked breads, cakes, cookies or hearty stews and soups is a must to lift the spirits! Canning is another one of my passions. I love the taste of "Good " home canned produce, expecially when it comes out of my garden! The produce truly is a gift From God, and I am very thankful for it! Hobbies: I live on a mini farm, raising Chickens and turkeys. I also have 5 German Shorthaired Pointer dogs that take up a lot of my time. I also enjoy playing cards and get togethes with family and friends. Health: I'm always looking and researching on what things makes us healthy. I really enjoying researching on line different new products for good health. Somethings I order, just don't pan out, while other, have really helped my health improve. I always try to go the natural way. I would love to some day buy all organic cotton bedding, cloths, but that can be very expensive. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href="" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href= title='Myspace Graphics'><img src= width=349 height=357 alt='myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics' border=0></a> My Summer gardens! <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="" height="360" width="480"></embed><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" style="border-width: 0;" vspace="1"></a>
