You can put this recipe together quicker than the time it takes to heat the water. It’s delicious and really hits the spot on a cold night, plus this recipe uses cacao (raw cocoa powder) which is full of antioxidants!
3 tbs. soy milk powder (or regular dry milk powder)
2 tsp. Navitas cacao powder* (or cocoa powder)
2 packets NuNaturals Stevia
1/8 tsp. salt
1 cup hot water
Optional: Dandies vegan marshmallows
Optional: 1 tsp. sugar
Combine all ingredients in a large mug, add hot water and mix together. I found I needed to use a whisk since the soy milk powder has a tendency to clump. Whisking the hot chocolate also makes it creamy and foamy, even better!
I really like NuNaturals stevia for this; I think it’s the best tasting stevia I’ve tried.
*Cacao powder is raw cocoa powder, and it full of antioxidants. Here is a great article on some of its benefits.
- If you want to make it even better, top it with a couple Dandies vegan marshmallows.
- I also added an option to add a teaspoon of sugar. Drinks sweetened with stevia alone are good, but when you add a small amount of sugar, it really gets rid of any stevia taste there is and makes it taste fantastic while still having reduced sugar and calories.
