Rich and Chocolaty Stevia Hot Chocolate

Dave and I constructed this recipe over the weekend for our Patient Appreciation Day today at Revolution Wellness Center.  I highly recommend trying this with almond milk first.  We have made it with boiling water all day at the office and don’t get me wrong, it tastes great, but the texture is missing something.  The added creaminess from almond milk will give it that little extra boost it needs.

3 tbsp pure cocoa powder (unsweetened to ensure gluten free)
1/2 tsp powdered stevia or 1/4 tsp liquid stevia
4 cups of water, rice milk or almond milk
2 tbsp raw honey (optional, to stay ADVANCED use only stevia)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix the cocoa and stevia extract together in a glass bowl or pitcher.  Boil water or rice/almond milk and add about 1/2 cup to the dry ingredients to make a paste.  Gradually thin the paste with the rest of the heated water/milk.  Add the honey or agave nectar and vanilla and stir until completely dissolved.

TIP:  To richen the cocoa, you may add a teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg.   Enjoy!
