Sugar free hot chocolate with the stevia sweetener

Making sugar free hot chocolate with stevia is easy. For the best results, you just have to make sure that you use pure and unsweetened ingredients. Sure, you can use cocoa powder if you want to, but nothing compares to the strong flavor of real melted chocolate, maybe combined with some delicious herbs.


Purists may say that the one and only traditional way of making hot chocolate is with water, and whether or not they are right, the fact remains that there are a lot of people who prefer their hot cocoa with milk. So go ahead and decide for yourself which is the way you like it the best. You can use whole milk or fat-free skimmed milk, even soy milk. 

If you’re using water, you need to add some dark cocoa powder along with your molten chocolate, such as Hershey's Baking Cocoa, or any other quality brand that you prefer.

As for the chocolate, you should find a bitter, unsweetened brand, such as Ghirardelli, Callebaut or Scharffen Berger to balance out the stevia sweetener and possibly the sweetness of the milk, especially when using soy milk.
