No Added Sugar Spiced Cocoa RecipeReport Violation
Nothing defines the fall and winter season like a nice cup on hot chocolate or as my family called it cocoa. A lot of people don't realize the amazing health benefits of cocoa. A recent study has found that cocoa is rich in powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants can protect you against a range of diseases and reduce the effects of aging. Further studies suggests cocoa may be richer in antioxidants than drinks like tea and red wine.
Conventional hot chocolate is loaded with sugar. Here is an amazing cocoa recipe that is low in carbs and sugars yet is really delicious. I have this almost every morning during the winter months. You have to try it, seriously.
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a tiny dash to taste of Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups regular milk, nut milk or soy milk
1/2 cup hot water (for richer and creamer use milk)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil, stirring for 2 minutes.
Add milk; stir and heat thoroughly, but do not boil.
Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Beat until foamy.
Serve hot with cinnamon sticks, if desired.
