Low-Carb / Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate

You can make this a dairy-free hot chocolate, too, by substituting unsweetened almond, rice, or soy milk for the cow’s milk. (We’ve been using Almond Milk)

What You’ll Need:
* 1 cup milk
* 1 heaping tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
* pinch salt
* 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1/8 teaspoon Stevia extract powder (pure, no fillers) – I bought a box of the little sweetener packets, perfect for this or a cup of tea and great for taking to work.

How to Make It:
Heat milk in a microwave-safe measuring cup for 90 seconds. While it heats, put the cocoa, salt, vanilla and Stevia into a mug. Pour about 1 tablespoon of the hot milk into the mug and stir briskly to make a paste. Then gradually add the rest of the hot milk, stirring as you go to prevent lumps from forming. Adjust Stevia to taste.

Enjoy your time in the kitchen!

About Brian

A few years ago I had gotten really sick with a mystery infection that put me in the hospital for over a week. When I got home I wasn't much better off. I had to have foot surgery and was laid up on the sofa for awhile. In that time I watched alot of Food Network and really gained a passion for food and it's preparation, cooking for my family was something I could still do even when I wasn't feeling my best and it was a way to help myself reach a healthier goal as well. Now I find myself always looking for healthier options that still taste wonderful and with my wifes gluten allergy I have even more of a challenge of feeding everyone. Honestly ... I am loving every minute of it. Because my kitchen has become my place of Zen.
