Servings: 1

Rich and chocolaty --- like Mom used to make. •3 tbsp cocoa •1/2 tsp powdered stevia extract •4 to 5 cups of 1% Lowfat Milk (I use Gossner Premium Milk 1 qt) •2 tbsp honey or maple syrup •1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 tbs. cacao powder, raw, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. stevia, loose
  • 5 c. milk, full-fat, raw, grass-fed or pastured cows, organic
  • 2 tbs. maple syrup, pure, organic
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract, organic

Mix the cocoa and stevia extract together in a medium-sized saucepan. Add about 1/2 cup of the milk to the dry ingredients to make a paste. Gradually thin the paste with about ½ cup of the milk. Add the hone or maple syrup while bringing to a low boil. Boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the rest of the milk to the desired richness. Add the vanilla and return to burner until heated through.

Note: Be careful not to scorch the cocoa. Use a pan with a heavy bottom and watch closely.

Variation: You may add a teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg.
