Creamy Hot Cocoa *

Hot cocoa is a favorite old-fashioned drink that everyone enjoys. This version is creamy, chocolaty, and good for you…especially if you go light on the sweetener 🙂

This recipe is safe for sugar-free diets, when using stevia as the only sweetener.

Heat milk and cocoa in a small saucepan, stirring with a wire whisk often.

Remove from heat; add a tiny pinch of salt, the vanilla and sweetener of your choice, to taste. (Remember, if you’re on a sugar-grain free diet, use only stevia for sweetening.)

Stir well and serve immediately.

Extra Flavoring Options:

– 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp. peppermint extract, or more to taste
