Sugar Free Dark Hot Cocoa

Sugar Free CocoaI’m a serious hot chocolate lover and the older I get, the darker I like it. For years I’ve used no sugar added Nesquick. I like the flavor, but wasn’t too keen on the long list of unidentifiable ingredients.

No sugar added Nesquick ingredients:

INGREDIENTS: COCOA PROCESSED WITH ALKALI, REDUCED MINERALS WHEY(FROM MILK), MALTODEXTRIN, SOY LECITHIN, TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, SALT, SUCRALOSE, ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, ACESULFAME POTASSIUM (NON-NUTRITIVE SWEETENER), SPICE. VITAMINS AND MINERALS: CALCIUM CARBONATE, ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C), ZINC OXIDE, PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE (VITAMIN B6), COPPER GLUCONATE, MANGANESE SULFATE, BIOTIN.

Last week I went on a quest to make the cocoa habit a bit healthier. After some experimentation, I came up with this recipe that is not too sweet and not too bitter. You might want to adjust the amounts of cocoa and/or stevia to suit your taste.

Sugar Free Dark Hot Cocoa Mix

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender. Process for one or two minutes until well blended.
  2. Pour into an airtight container.
  3. To use mix 1/3 C of powder to 8 ounces hot water. (I use a blender to get it smooth.)
  4. Heat for 1 minute in the microwave.
  5. If desired, add a drop of mint, vanilla, almond, or other extract.

Notes

If you want your millet more moist and dense, increase the water to 3 cups and keep the lid on after cooking for about 10 minutes.

    I totally like hot chocolate. I am a chocolate lover in general and like chocolate ice cream and just anything with chocolate. This recipe is something that I will want to try out soon. And I will be sipping it as I read this wonderful site.
